Since most of my readers are in the US, I should mention up front that this fare sale is only valid for flights originating in Europe.
While they supposedly won’t start advertising it till tomorrow, British Airways has launched a pretty huge business class fare sale. They ran a business class fare sale a couple of weeks ago for those in the US, though now they’re showing our friends on the other side of the pond some love.
It appears as if the fare sale for flights to the US will be valid for ticketing through June 14, 2012, for travel between June 21, 2012, and May 15, 2013. A 14-day advance purchase is required, a Sunday night minimum stay is required, and the maximum stay is 42 days.
Some of the roundtrip, all-inclusive business class fares are as follows:
£955 (~$1,480) for roundtrip business class from London to Miami? That’s smashingly good.
Best of all it looks like both Virgin Atlantic and Delta have already matched many of the fares.
Mark this as “developing,” though if you’re interested I’d get in on this sooner rather than later, as I suspect space will dry up pretty quickly.
