Well, the Y fares are excellent to many cities. Are you after J deals ?

I saw SAN, BNA, ATL and MSY in my searching - jumped on ATL though might fiddle with it more. All searchable in the App, Powertools landed fine from Matrix - but GF [on map view] and the desktop site weren't showing yet.

The Black Friday deals are now being highlighted on the Spain version of BA.com with a countdown to Tuesday evening.

So I think we can say the prices are now plugged into BA.com globally.

Through I kayak search I see the fares can be substantially lower using different OTA's. For example, LHR-ICN come up as 839 GBP per person, if you are happy to use a little known OTA.
BTW I noticed that SF have posted these deals as error fares and mention human error.

Some discounted POUG deals for Black Friday would be good as I need to top up my TPs keep on track for retaining Gold for next year. Is still the same old 89 each way for LGW routes into Italy and this seems incredibly poor value when the aircraft will be half-empty anyway this time of year and the C cabin will probably have only 2-3 seats filled out of 8 or 12 available.

Finally the Black Friday 2018 deals are now showing on BA.com for UK residents.

In addition to the 2-4-1 offers, there are discounts on short, longhaul flights and BA Holidays. There is also a 5,000 Avios bonus on Avis car hire. You have until Monday evening to make the booking.

So I checked Vegas and it seemed to be via Gatwick only... Delta/VS were doing a similar fare with a hop at ATL or DTW.

As usual nothing from the U.S. or Canada. Both Air Canada and Lufthansa have Black Friday sales from Canada although nothing in business was much cheaper than the usual eye watering high prices.

Given that you can apparently book the 2 person fares for 1 person and a lap infant, do you think I could get away with substituting my lap infant for a teddy bear? I desperately need an affordable way to travel solo to Seoul between Christmas and New Year!

I can't actually get Seoul to price up as it doesn't seem like there are any actual dates in Jan or March that are available, unless one only wants to spend a few hours in Seoul. And then it gives me an error anyway. The web pages are so awful to use that I'm not bothering any more.
