The best route from LHR to CCS?

I need the best way to travel from LHR (or LON) to CCS. BA don't fly, nor offer codeshares

So what's the best way? Okay, so I'll define 'best'. I know what the BA board is like!!...

What's the cheapest route?

What's the cheapest 1W route?

What's the best (clearly defined as including a BA segment) route?

Thanks for your help

Got to be IB if you want to stick to Oneworld.

If not Air France.

As HIDDY says you can use IB if you want to keep to oneworld. They fly to CCS from MAD. Just quickly glancing on their home page it seems lowest fare is about 700 Euros (though I haven't checked specific dates)

Or you can use AA or LAN and connect through MIA. Again that keeps you to oneworld carriers.

Seems to be a popular route and cheapest fares will depend on when you're travelling. But will be expensive in the next week or so.

If you're in London you may find somebody like Trailfinders or Journey South America could have some good flight deals.

QF F by day to SIN to maximise on the champagne connecting to BA F overnight to SYD to maximise on the TPs. Then connect to QF F to NYC before the final furlong on AA down to CCS.

Alternatively QR F to DOH, then BA F to BAH (you did request a BA segment ) followed by CX C to HKG and CX F to NYC, then AA to CCS.

I'd rather fly IB than have to deal with the unpredcitability of an MIA transit...especially on the return.
