Via Thrifty Traveler Premium, we’ve just learned about a fantastic sale on British Airways business class flights between the U.S. and the U.K. Using Google Flights, It’s easy to find round-trip business class flights for around $1,500. Tack on discounts from AARP or Amex Platinum Travel to make it even cheaper.
Thrifty Traveler reports round trip fares for around $1,500 (and as low as $1,324) from many cities around the U.S. Valid destinations include: London (LHR), Edinburgh (EDI), Glasgow (GLA), Inverness (INV), and Manchester (MAN).
- AARP members can save $200 by clicking through the British Airways link found here. If you’re not an AARP member, it only costs about $12 to sign up and you do not have to be old to do so.
- British Airways cardholders can save an additional 10% by using code CHASEBA10
- Amex Platinum cardholders can save around $200 by booking through Amex Travel
Thrifty Traveler reports that these fares are valid through September, but I also saw some great fares (but not quite as great) later in the fall and then dirt cheap fares again showed up in the winter.
There’s definitely some risk to booking this since we don’t know when unrestricted travel will be allowed. You can cancel these tickets at any time for a British Airways voucher, but that’s obviously not nearly as good as cash unless you fly British Airways often. On the other hand, these prices are incredible. Plus, you can credit your flight to Alaska Airlines to earn oodles (yes, oodles) of valuable miles.
