UK outbound First class from £1295

I have previously looked at the slightly underwhelming BA sale in this article, but I did not go into the First class fares. Although there aren’t many of them, there are actually some decent deals on First. 

Here are the prices:

  • New York £1700
  • Nashville £1787
  • San Francisco £1883
  • Atlanta £1665
  • Dubai £2290
  • Tel Aviv £1295
  • Singapore £2491
  • Hong Kong £2590

The sale is on until 22 June and you can fly until Spring 2022. If you book travel for before 30 April 22, they will come under BA’s “Book with Confidence” guarantee. This means you can cancel and take a voucher refund or move dates with no change fee. You could also lessen the risk by adding a hotel or car for even part of your stay so that you only have to pay a deposit.

Virgin Atlantic sale from £994

Virgin Atlantic January 2021

While the new sale is not as good as the amazing £999 Upper Class offers from last year, it’s still pretty good. Most US destinations are a very reasonable price under £1200 return in Upper Class. The sale is for flights until summer next year and ends on 22 June 2021. The cheapest flights seems to be available for Tuesday and Wednesday departures. Virgin have a handy calendar feature which makes it easy to find the cheapest days. If you tick “Show flexible dates” you can then click on “Price Calendar” on the next page to see this:


The prices:

  • San Diego £1180
  • San Francisco £1178
  • New York £1250
  • Boston £1250
  • Miami £1159
  • Orlando £1166
  • Los Angeles £1158
  • Las Vegas £1167
  • Seattle £1170
  • Kingston, Jamaica £1694
  • Antigua £2044
  • Tel Aviv £994
  • Hong Kong £1790

If you don’t mind going ex EU, prices from Paris are around £995 for most US destinations with Delta/Virgin.

  1. VIrgin prices quite appealing. Are they currently under scope of Book with Confidence or similar? Booking through AF-KLM is currently refundable for departures before 31/12
