Right now there’s an amazing transatlantic business class deal originating in Europe. You can book business class roundtrip itineraries for less than $500. And this is amazing for people in the U.S., too – just book an award ticket or cheap coach fare to Europe, then book a series of roundtrips that start in Europe. At this price, why not go more than once?
You can fly across the British Airways network to places like New York; Washington DC; Austin; Las Vegas; Philadelphia and Seattle. And you can start in cities like Dublin; Paris; Nice; Bucharest; Dusseldorf; and more. Try your favorite European cities and British Airways destinations in the U.S.
Some city pairs will cost a bit more, perhaps $900 roundtrip for February – March trips, which is still a fraction of regular price.
Here’s a sample itinerary from Dublin to New York for $550 roundtrip in business class on British Airways.
Key details of cheapest fare basis INX1C1S4:
- Travel from Europe is permitted Tuesday – Thursday (for transatlantic segment) and travel from the U.S. is permitted Monday – Wednesday (for transatlantic segment).
- 180 advance reservation required
- Minimum Saturday night stay and 24 hour stay required
- Stopovers permitted in Europe for 150 euros each
- Non-refundable but no fee for changes, however any difference in fare would apply
You can actually find these fares for a bit less, around $487 roundtrip, searching SkyScanner and booking through smaller online travel agencies. However many will prefer to book direct.
I would not make any firm plans based on these fares at this point. They’re such a great deal I wouldn’t be surprised if the airline decides it has seller’s remorse. It seems to me this is just a deep discount offer – after all, they require 6 month advance purchase for the cheapest deals which is almost unprecedented! However if they implausibly claim later that this sale was a mistake, the Department of Transportation does require airlines to cover costs consumers incurred in reliance on the fare. However it’s far simpler and easier just to wait to ensure that they are going to honor the sale.
