Oneworld bargains to US from £1056
BA seem to be working their way through Europe with flash sales on business class in the last 10 days of their sale which ends on 21 May (not June as I mistakenly out yesterday!). Today’s fares are from Paris airport which is easy to get to from the UK regions and has a good Cathay Pacific lounge to use when travelling on oneworld airlines. These are some of the best oneworld business fares I have seen for a while so don’t hang around as they probably won’t last until 21 May.
Although I have listed the official travel dates I was able to find the fares until the end of March 2020. On these fares, you can fly direct with American Airlines from Paris or maximise tier points and fly with BA via Heathrow.

- Orlando £1056

British Airways new A350 routes
Although there has been no official press release, according to Business standard website , British Airways are planning to add Bengaluru to the list of destinations for its new A350. The A350 will feature British Airways new Club Suite which is a huge improvement on the current Club World seat. You can read more about the seat in this article.
The airline is also expected to announce that flights to Tel Aviv will feature the A350 from December 2019. This could be in response to Virgin Atlantic starting flights to Tel Aviv from September 2019, increasing competition on the route.
The exact timings are yet to be revealed but it will be later in 2019 according to BA’s Moran Birger, Head of Sales, Asia Pacific and Middle East. The other routes already announced for the A350 are Toronto and Dubai.
