British Airways Black Friday Sale. Two for £2018.

British Airways have launched a very aggressive Black Friday sale for some limited dates over the traditionally quieter winter travel period.  The catch is that two people must travel together (currently taking applications for the position of boyfriend) 😂.

The list of cities that are included is:

  • Abu Dhabi
  • Atlanta
  • Austin
  • Baltimore
  • Beijing
  • Boston
  • Chicago
  • Denver
  • Fort Lauderdale
  • Houston
  • Las Vegas
  • Miami
  • Montreal
  • New York
  • Orlando
  • Philadelphia
  • Phoenix
  • San Jose, CA
  • Seoul
  • Shanghai
  • Tampa
  • Toronto
  • Washington D.C.

Firstly, and most importantly, all reservations must be made by 26th November.

For the travel dates themselves, there seem to be a mixture of restrictions.  Most of the fares have the following requirements for outbound dates:

  • 11th DEC 18 to 13th DEC 18
  • 16th DEC 18 to 18th DEC 18
  • 24th DEC 18 to 31st DEC 18

Returning in this time window:

  • 24th DEC 18 to 31st DEC 18
  • 08th JAN 19 to 10th JAN 19

However, the Asian fares seem to be far less restrictive with the following conditions:

  • VALID FOR TRAVEL COMMENCING ON/AFTER 07DEC18 AND ON/BEFORE 31MAR19
  • ALL TRAVEL MUST BE COMPLETED BY MIDNIGHT ON 07APR19

The Asian fares seem to have direct routings specified, meaning that you are (not unreasonably) restricted to the non-stop BA flights.  The north-American joint business fares are the standard routeable ones.

I suspect that availability will dry up quite quickly with these fares so if you fancy a winter get-away, I’d definitely book sooner, rather than later.

  1. Had a look at this earlier today, after my other half sent me the link. If we weren’t going to Tokyo in January, I’d be up for a trip to Asia over Xmas. Great bargains to be had there!
