Black Friday seat sale

These fares are pretty much the lowest I have seen apart from the Boston fare which was around £915 for a while. The real bargains for me are the Caribbean as I have never seen these below £1000 before. Barbados is on the travel corridor list and open for visitors. Read more about it in this article. 

Also, a standout is Cape Town at £999 for an 11-hour flight!

Grenada is also open to UK visitors with a negative PCR test and will be required to remain at the hotel until a second test on day 4. Details here.

  1. Anyone know why Atlanta incurs a 300GBP premium over other North American destinations ?

  2. Swiss also have some fantastic deals at the moment , for couples, from Amsterdam. AMS-BKK Bus 2000 euros RTN per couple. AMS-BKK Bus outward and RTN in First for 3000 euros per couple. For even more luxury fly from Rome in Bus with Swiss to BKK and RTN in Bus with Singapore Airlines to Singapore and then fly their First Class Suite back to Zurich and then Bus back to Rome with Swiss. .Price 3200 euros per couple.

  3. Depending when their sale ends, you mention travel to be completed by 31st Dec. 2021, but Virgin are only bookable up till mid October 2021 at present!!!
