British Airways sale fares for New Year’s Eve.

It looks like British Airways has started loading some promotional business class fares in time for Black Friday starting from London.

These look to be valid for departures between 25th December to 31st December only.  They also come with a three day minimum stay and have a 28 day advance purchase requirement to get the best deals.

From some searching on ITA Matrix, I’ve found the following prices:

  • Austin – £1,650
  • Boston – £1,510
  • Chicago – £1,550
  • Hawaii – £1,930
  • Houston – £1,610
  • Las Vegas – £1,620
  • Los Angeles – £1,620
  • Miami – £1,530
  • New Orleans – £1,760
  • New York – £1,500
  • Orlando – £1,500
  • Philadelphia – £1,550
  • Washington D.C. (IAD/BWI) – £1,530

For this article, I’m not focusing on the tier point earning ability of these fares – they are just like every other trans-Atlantic fare and so can all be routed creatively!

In addition, as joint-business fares, you should also be able to select American Airlines flights across the Atlantic to be sure of getting their superior hard product and 1-2-1 all aisle access on all aircraft.

However for the Hawaii fares in particular, if you’re simply after a no-fuss way of getting there, direct from London, this is a pretty good price for a very straight-forward journey.

I suspect that these will get properly launched tomorrow, so I’m sure there’s going to be an aspect to the promotion that I’ll have missed, however felt it was worth highlighting them so you can get a head-start.

I also wouldn’t be surprised if there’s a BA Holidays promotion to go along with the deals so it’s worth taking a look on their website as well.



  1. Am I remembering rightly – were these BA East Coast fares two for 2017GBP last Black Friday? Not quite as competitive this year (although pretty good for West Coast!).

    1. You’re spot on! These ones definitely aren’t as good, which I’m somewhat surprised about.
