Offer: Crazy Cheap BA Premium Fares to the Middle East – Abu Dhabi for £325!

Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.

Hilton APAC

Looks like BA are filing some VERY low fares to certain destinations – I haven’t had a chance to look them all up yet…

Abu Dhabi is the clear steal at under £400! Have a look on BA.com here.

Muscat, Doha and Dubai are all £100-£200 more (Dubai has the new A350 though!)

 

British Airways Price Promise

But hold on, I said £325, not £400?

Well luckily BA have a very decent price promise…

If you book flights directly with us, you deserve the very best deal. Which is exactly what you’ll get with our Best Price Guarantee.

If you book with us, but find a qualifying British Airways flight for less elsewhere and let us know on the same day as you book, we’ll give you a voucher for the difference. Even better: if you’re a member of our Executive Club, we’ll give you double the difference. Subject to Terms and Conditions below.

Please do read up on it carefully here.

So below is the same flights from an online travel agent (OTA).  Have a look for competing fares via Skyscanner.

Double the difference is £74 bringing my BA direct booking to a total of under £325.

Upgrading to Club World

ALL PREMIUM ECONOMY FARES BOOKED VIA BA.COM ARE UPGRADEABLE.

Yes!  No issues with fare classes etc – they all work.  With Avios or Gold Upgrade Vouchers.

You will have to pay the increase in YQ (carrier charges) however.  Thankfully they are reasonable to the Middle East, unlike the states!
