Just had one of those strange fares where business was cheaper than economy.

I'm from BRU and price still the same as usual!
Just booked OSL-LHR-CLT-YUL-LHR for £1151

Ex-DUB was a similar price.

This is over Easter.

Both fares expire on 21st December.

Have you tried private browsing/incognito mode? I have a long-standing problem that I can't make BA Holidays bookings on my laptop unless I use that, although flight only works fine on my normal browser.

I had one of those a couple of year back when I went to IST. Economy basic (no luggage) was cheaper but not by much.

None of these sale fares to the Far East have excited me much so I've just blown a lot of Avios on LHR to TPE (via HKG) in January with CX which I'll cancel should a great ex-EU alternative come up with BA or QR...

Looks like the best deals in the sale are to Europe but I'd already booked my ski flights out of LHR at a price similar to what is on offer now. I do quite fancy Seville but don't fancy slog to Gatwick for just a weekend trip

Nice. Sounds like a win to me!

It was great for my first ever time in F. However, having read F posts in here after, I definitely didn't take advantage of the food (I only had 1 main meal!) but I did do quite well on the LP!

I didn't, as it started working again later in the evening, but thanks for the tip, will try it if it happens again!

Has anyone found the "book by" date on the LGW Club Europe sale fares? They're not mentioned on the T&Cs on ba.com/sale, so I'm assuming it's not going to last until 30th Jan like the rest of the sale...?

I know that not everything can be done as quickly as we may like, but a better bit of information would be when does the job get completed, and do we believe thatíll be done by that date. BA do make meal of making any change.

Tried that - it wanted full payment at time of booking!

Are you booking less than 5 weeks prior to departure?

The balance is due at T minus 5 weeks.

The last few Flight + Car bookings I've done have asked for the full amount immediately, even when the booking is for 3-4 months away. Is there a minimum value for the system to bother separating out the initial £150 deposit and the balance? Mine have been for around £220ish total I think...
