Incredible British Airways Business Class Fare Sale Departing London

In general it’s rare to see cheap business class fares out of London, both because it’s a business market, and also because the UK Air Passenger Duty for departing London adds another $200+ to the cost of each ticket.

That’s why the current sale we’re seeing is pretty remarkable.

At the moment British Airways has an incredible Black Friday sale for those looking to escape this winter, which is similar to the deals they’ve had in past years.

Two people can fly roundtrip business class from London to about two dozen destinations around the world for a total of £2018.

According to British Airways’ sale page, the following destinations are eligible:

USA & Canada:

Atlanta, Austin, Baltimore, Boston, Chicago, Denver, Fort Lauderdale, Houston, Las Vegas, Miami, Montreal, New York, Orlando, Philadelphia, Phoenix, San Jose, Tampa, Toronto, Washington Dulles

Middle East:

Abu Dhabi

Far East:

Beijing, Seoul, Shanghai

The major restriction with this sale are the eligible travel dates. You must depart over the following dates:

  • December 11-13, 2018
  • December 16-18, 2018
  • December 24-31, 2018

Then you need to return over the following dates:

  • December 24-31, 2018
  • January 8-10, 2019

So the dates are limited, but if you’re looking for a holiday getaway, this is a great option.

Unfortunately I don’t see similar fares departing the US, so for once it’s people in London getting a good deal.

You can search availability for these fares on Google Flights or ITA Matrix, and then you can book directly with British Airways (or you can just search on their site directly). Just remember you need to be searching an itinerary for two people in order to be eligible, or else you won’t see this promotional pricing.

Does anyone plan on taking advantage of this great fare sale?

  1. @Jordan –

    yes it is. That price is for 2 business class tickets LHR-MIA round trip for $2600. That is a phenomenal deal.

  2. Willem – no. These fares are based on two people flying,

    Single travellers get nothing.

    Andy – no because of the asymmetric government taxes that are higher ex-UK than they are into then UK (and that’s before we get into the BA profit sorry carrier / international surcharge.

    Karen – looks like the upper deck of the 747 to me because of the single aisle.

  3. Dear Karen,

    I am convinced this is an image of the IMHO best place to fly longhaul: The Upper Deck of a B747-400 with its great setup of Club World seats.

    You can identify this by the width and length of the cabin as well as the emergency exit doors 🙂

    Here you can have a look on the official seatmap of one of their configurations:

  4. Indeed, that is the 747 UD, and how I miss it. It was like a private club, and back in the day it was even uncrowded.

    Shame on BA for slamming solos. I just broke up with my gf.
