LAX was a £100 or so cheaper - didn't think it worth it

Both of your destinations are not in the sale, it appears.

There are sale fares to both destinations. However, there are cheaper DIFs than the sale fares, which may mask the effect of the sale.

As always, please don't make the mistake of thinking that there is a sale only when (or where) the airline says there is a sale.

I'm mostly looking for YYZ 29th May to 3 June or 12th to the 17th June. I did see a very small price decrease on F but not on CW. Maybe Black Friday or Christmas than

BA Holidays seems to be working well. Priced independently with BA and Hotel, our possible destination came out at £7,280 ex-LON. Same thing with BA Holidays is £5,148 ex-LON and a rather pricey £5,672 ex-JER. May be able to abate that with some Avios, hopefully ... the Flight + Hotel wants an extra £323 for transfers!!

Picked one up for a shade over £100pp so pretty pleased with that... T3 CX lounge again then! I haven't been gold that long, but all my bookings at the moment seem to be out of T3, I'm still awaiting the delights of the First Lounge/CCR!

Is it worth ringing BA and being cheeky :-) (Tongue firmly in cheek

Ahh well you love and learn...
How much deposit did you pay? Could be an option to go again at the lower price walking away from the last deal for a net saving

Bang on the money there Gloabiliser

Sometimes there are the prices in 'non-sale' periods there really are some bargains to be had. Back on topic away to look at W fares for next year, maybe even try the INV routing as it's only a few hours away.

Couldn't agree more - don't be fooled into thinking that banner on the homepage means you'll get a bargain - yeah some great CE fares, but the best fares are often silently matching other airlines and utilising other starting points. People expecting to get longhaul J for around £1k exLHR and are then disappointed when they don't citing, worse sale ever etc etc !!

There seem to be relatively few ex-USers active here. I have never noticed a pattern for an ex-US sale - and IME they tend to be less frequent and less lucrative (for PAX) than the ex-EU sales. Prices did drop quite a bit a month or so ago (at least from West coast starting points) and while we're still quite a bit above the ex-UK CW price I don't think there's too much room for improvement. A mild "sale" is the best we can hope for right now I think; I hope I am incorrect on that and something more "exciting" is forthcoming. But don't hold your breath!

And welcome to flyertalk and the BA Board findmeinthetara although I see you registered some time ago. I hope you enjoyed the delights of the CX Flounge in T3 as well as future use of GF.

Thanks! Oh well, I suppose. I managed to bag a BOS-LHR-BLR R/T in CW for $2800/passenger earlier this year and there was no ongoing sale. I guess I have to keep looking for something like that.

I paid £350 as a WT+booking plus some more so don’t fancy losing £350 at this stage

I was only being cheeky.. so might give them a call and see what they say
