Emirates First class from £2373

Emirates First class is quite an experience and probably my best First class overall (particularly in the new suites). You can read my reviews of Emirates First class on all their aircraft types here. 

If you fancy experiencing it for a more reasonable price, there is a good offer from Warsaw. Although the airport itself is not fantastic, it is a handy place to stay when positioning as there are two on-site hotels just across the road. I stayed at the Renaissance which I recommend.

South Africa on British Airways from £1377

Cape Town - penguins at Boulders Beach

Cape Town – penguins at Boulders Beach

This offer is from most major airports in Italy including some great ones for a two-centre break such as Naples, Rome and Venice.

Trying to get to South Africa on Avios can be pretty challenging as there is high demand for tickets on this route. When deals like this come up, it is often worth considering if it is better to spend your Avios on the positioning flights. Then pay cash for the actual tickets since they will give you Avios and Tier points too.

If you are aiming to go to Cape Town you could choose to go to Johannesburg and use miles to fly on BA to Cape Town from there on their Comair franchise. I have done this flight several times and the Slow Lounges either end are pretty good!

The prices are business class return from

  • Durban £1392
  • Johannesburg £1377
  • Cape Town £1570

The rules are:

  • Travel: By 11 December 2020
  • Minimum stay:  a Saturday night
  • Maximum stay: 12 months
  • Transfers: Unlimited
  • Stopovers: No
  • Refundable: No
  • Changeable: Yes for a fee

  1. I recommend Warsaw for stopover and overnight stay – if needed – airport is just 20 min away from the center, hotels are relatively cheap and good, great food. Airport itself is small with small lounges as well – but very easy/friendly for connecting flights. Above rates for First Emirates seem to be unbeatable.

    • Yes I enjoyed my stay in Warsaw. The old town is beautiful. On the way back though I just about made it to the airport hotel! 😴
