Was last year's BA winter sale only for ex-London or ex-UK?

If it's NYC and you don't mind starting in DUB you can get WT+ for 550 and into CW quite easily with Avios in early 2019 :

VS has announced its winter sale - I had an email this morning - so presumably the BA one will not now be far behind. Indeed, it would not surprise me if fares were being loaded today.

And even if not, they might be doing some stealth price matching to VS, so worth having a look if you're after something specific...

Was told by an agent in BA holidays to ring back 21/22nd December as expecting sale fares to be loaded around then as I am trying to U/G one sector of a holiday booking and the quotes are too high just now

I've seen a few WT flights to Asia drop about 50 pounds this evening.

VS Upper fares are redunkulous. 1.6k to NYC before sale and 3.1k during sale.

BA seem to advertise all their sales as ex London and it's often stated in the T & C's but IME regional fares are also discounted.
