This 2015/16 thread is now closed. The 2017 thread is:
http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/briti...7-edition.html


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.
Switzerland/Italy/Sweden to East & West Coast USA in WTP (PE) €600/690 (3x Avios)
LHR-Asia/Oz for £1100/1500 on MH
Finnair J, ARN / GOT - BKK, 1150 GBP return (valid till Jan 9th)
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.

Just an FYI but there's a new big QR sale starting Jan9 so anyone considering booking with them might want to hold onto that until the 9th

I've had a look but can't see anything to AKL in this MH deal - has anyone found anything?

Thanks

Which is a shame... as I really wanted to go to Rarotonga since AZ changed my ticket for a more direct route

Consider LHR- SYD and then use avios to connect to AKL with LAN on one of their 787,s

I picked a random date 9 Apr (Dep SYD 1110 arrive AKL 1620) and seats are available:

Costs OW : J = 11000 Av + GBP 145.10 - 18200 + GBP 90.10
Y = 4000 + 120.10 - 8500 + 85.10



Had considered this flight myself, although starting in Mel - Syd -Akl but will fly west to Perth next week instead, unfortunately using good old fashioned cash (no Av redemptions available). Plus if you were a OWE you'd get to use the very nice QF F lounge in Syd !

Thanks for the suggestion. Have been wondering about doing that, but I'm not looking to go until November so might wait and see what QR come up with in the meantime

TXL - JNB just dropped by a grand or so for later this month £1452 return https://goo.gl/flights/LPfz

Looks like a lot of forward availability as well.

A ARN-LAX itinerary I have been watching has just dropped from ~£1,650 to ~£1,400. I also think there are some price reductions ex-LUX (according to my tracked Google Flights).

I have not had a chance to look into detail, but hopefully this is the start of something, at least!

Anyone found a way to get around the odd 26-day (?) max stay?

AMS works as well. OPO still £100 less than that.

Great find!

Works open jaw too, can do OPO-JNB CPT-OPO I need that for Feb 2018 haha shame I can't book that far ahead yet!

for extra TPs it can be started in FNC

https://goo.gl/flights/5TYK

although I wouldn't recommend starting it there! But you can do OPO-JNB-FNC for a nice route if you haven't visited those 2 places

Does OPO-MAD-LHR-JNB work for present triple avios offer?

There're flights operated by IB (OPO-MAD, MAD-LHR) and I'm affraid they're not eligible for bonus avios. What's your opinion?

'For a limited period only, you will receive triple the Avios you’d normally collect on every British Airways flight you take, including flights with a BA flight number between Europe and North America with our airline partners American Airlines, Finnair and Iberia.'
