The BA sale is now on until midnight on 11 July 2017 and includes reduced fares in Club World, Club Europe, Economy and Premium Economy to many destinations. Travel dates vary but many destinations are available into 2018. As usual the fares are not earth-shattering in business class, but for direct flights there are a few good deals. As usual these are mainly holiday destinations from Gatwick. Tampa, Oakland (San Francisco) and Orlando are all reasonable prices. The Caribbean offers good value as well as Costa Rica (which is on my bucket list).
Club World holidays usually offer better value than flight only so it worth looking at both options before deciding. You also get the Avios bonus for BA holidays as well as only having to pay a small deposit. It doesn’t have to be a hotel, car hire often brings down the price too.
