A collaborative collection and discussion of nice Avios-earning and TP-earning J & F premium fare deals. This thread is not for TP runs or published sales.
Some links to relevant threads can be found below.


Enjoy your Premium Experience.

FIRST CLASS - RTM/AMS/BRU to West Coast (SFO, SAN, YVR, SEA) starting at £2330... (just click on the book with American link to get the good price. )
Oneworld: Italy and various EU to New York in club €1250
CONSOLIDATED QR 2017 Travel Festival Fares
Current QR Sale Fares (yes, I did...)
QR/UL FRA-MLE via DOH+CMB: 1380€ RT across the board. 640 TP.

TXL and Portugal to JNB for £1350/1450 on BA discussed from post 5021 onwards..

For promos to the US (often, but TP heavy routes in general) it is always a good idea to look at BA Tier Point Runs 2017 master thread. Current sales are often in the Wiki there.

I'm in for a couple of weeks in Costa Rica Aug-Sept, from BCN. The damn positioning flights are going to cost almost half as much as the rest of the deal though if I book BA!

Thinking of spending some time in BCN at Spanish school to brush up on my language skills so at least I feel I'm getting some value.

QR extend £1000 Dubai SALE to London

Hey all, hope this is of use to some who like me were temped but did not bite on the deals from MAN, EDI, etc. Qatar just extended their UK sale to include London (LHR) at same price point. £1k all in round trip.

Fare Valid: Now-May 31 2017 (with unknown black out dates).

I easily priced out July, August, Oct, November, December and into next year.

Routing: Via DOH

Nice tier point opportunity.

Thanks as always for this invaluable resource.

Not that I could see, I was getting £1700 until just now and their site for this sale had a blank London price.

Most fares I can find at this price point are for the A330...seems there is a surcharge on A380 itineraries...

According to this when it was launched last week only BHX, EDI, and MAN. LHR was mentioned as being added this week, which it now has been.

These types of restriction notes seem to be appearing on all my bookings as shown in myflights over the last 24 hours. I don't think it is anything to be concerned about.

When you upgrade from HBO BA flight to club europe the restrictions are just as crazy lol

Re Qatar EDI-DOH-DXB deals.

Can I break my journey in DOH and make a two-centre holiday?

Thanks for that, so with one stopover FoC, that covers DOH. Or is DOH a special 200USD case?

Back in May I booked 2 PAX SJC-LHR-BCN and back in F on the 787. Paid roughly $14K Yesterday I got a BA "Fare sale" email so checked the same itin. It priced out now at $10K and change. Further, the same fare was now available on the A380 from SFO whereas before it was some even more ridiculous amount.

Of course BA wouldn't refund the difference so I had to pay a "change" penalty. Even with that I came out $3k better off.

Bummer about their inflexibility on the change fee. My track record with AA has always been good in getting the full amount refunded. Oh well......

YVR-CDG in J is currently discounted to 1488USD, I made a thread on it in the premium fare subforum too but figured you guys might be interested here too. see e.g.:
