British Airways launched its summer sale yesterday. You can read all about it here. but there is not a lot to get really excited about.
From a luxury flight perspective, there aren’t so many good deals. Here are a few that I noticed that seem OK, especially since they depart from the UK (London), but they are not really stand out fares:
Tampa for £1495
Philadelphia for £1744
New York for £1813
Miami for £1870
There are some slightly better prices to the Caribbean. Kingston for £1195 isn’t too bad and there is good availability right through to May 2018. Punta Cana at £1196 isn’t too shabby either. Heading further east is quite disappointing: Bangkok for £1859 and a remarkable £3256 for Kuala Lumpur is quite the poorest value I’ve seen in a BA sale for some time.
If you want to include a hotel and select a Club World Holiday then there is some slightly better value to be had. You can book the 4-star Occidental Punta Cana hotel on an All-inclusive basis for seven nights with Club World business class flights from London for £1399 per person (based on at least two people sharing). That’s just an additional £203 per person. You would probably spend that on food alone. The other benefit of booking a Club World holiday is that you don’t need to pay the full amount when you make the booking, just a deposit. Apart from that, there are’t so many great holiday deals around, but if you find any gems do let me know!
You can see all of the Luxury flight and holiday offers here. Bookings must be completed by 11 July 2017 and for the most part is for travel up to around June 2018.
