* plus 70 applicable taxes and fees...
* ... which includes 37 YQ, obviously.


Look, I know that large numbers of folk on this board haven't seen the rear-end of an aircraft since the Big Bang (meaning finance, not physics ) but I'm a little surprised not to have seen a thread on the subject of the sale that is currently on ba.com in very big letters (travel in May / June; book by 27 March).

Maybe that's because it's limited to ET, WT and WT+?

Thing is, I'm not sure that my regular LGW-JER-LGW is actually part of the sale because it's not listed in the promotion and because the cheap fares go on into July. However, the fare for booking more than a month ahead has dropped from around 90-100 to about 75.

Is this simply the slow summer season in progress?

Ah, thank you. I did look at that thread but it's so long I only scanned the last few pages.

Indeed surprising. People should be picking up UUAs for bargain prices!

Yes, I saw the thread pop back to the top and checked it,

very lucky as if it wasnt in the sale, i would have been flying in Y to the US next month. I was just about to book, but managed to wait for the sale fares to start populating.

I am flying to IAD for meetings in New Jersey and PA though!!
