I was booking some of my 2018 British Airways Business Class flights within Europe this week and I found that, as long as you are booking a return flight (even if the return leg is in Economy), British Airways is offering some amazing flight prices for it’s European Business Class.
As an example, my flight out from London Gatwick to Nice costs just £86 pp in Business on 13th December. Fly from Heathrow and the price comes in at a more “normal” £207 on the same day. Now let’s compare this ticket price to a one-way ticket on the same day; 13th December. The one-way price of your Business seat from Gatwick comes in at £385 and out of Heathrow, £283.
These discounted fares have just been loaded onto the British Airways system so book them up quick. If you are NOT travelling within Europe in 2018, you may also be interested in how to score a flight upgrade in 2018 and the latest Boxing Day travel sales.
And the free champagne?
This comes with your Business Class seat along with extra space (the middle seat is converted into a table), a bite to eat (not awfully appealing), fast track through security, priority boarding, priority bags and you get Avios airmiles and tier points with your booking.
You need your return ticket to include a 2-night stay and a Sat night. Here are some of the other Business Class routes I found:
Alicante and Amsterdam are priced from £180 return.
Barcelona looks to be an amazing from £140 return.
Malaga is also priced at £180 return; ideal for a long weekend at the Marbella Club.
Nice from £180 return; ideal for Monaco or the Royal Riviera beach hotel.
Innsbruck is £188 return; ideal for a quick ski weekend at the Jagdhof hotel or Das Central.
Salzburg from £180 return.
Venice from £180 return.
Why Would I Book Business Class With Cash & Not Avios
Usually, I book Club Europe with Avios, but these prices are really excellent plus you earn Avios and tier points! You are likely to earn at least 2,150 Avios for a return flight, depending on your destination, which is £21.50-£43 immediate cashback depending on how you value your Avios.
You also get 80 tier points for most European flights (return) in Business Class depending on the distance, longer routings get 160 tier points.
You need 300 tier points to get to British Airways Bronze level which will give you priority baggage, free seat selection and 25% more bonus Avios whenever you fly with British Airways.
You need 600 tier points to get to Silver. As a Silver member, you get FREE British Airways airport lounge access and you’ll collect 50% more Avios whenever you fly with British Airways.
