With the Black Friday specials, what about regional connections? They seem to be all ex LON, with no option for a regional! Would love to go to Venice ex JER.

Flights to much of the Caribbean in J seem to be generally higher than they were at the beginning of the week!

I’m in a similar gondola to you. I’d like to book up a few trips ex-NCL. I don’t fancy risking separate booking with family in tow.

The European flights I have been looking at have doubled in price since last week.

I'm hoping it's a blip......

BA has taken 10% off the already cheap DIF fare in WT+ to Boston in January that I was intending to book already, so it's a small win for me.

I guess dinner at one of the finer seafood establishments in Boston is on BA in this trip
Padmeister and rockflyertalk like this.

Welcome to FT and I'm sure you will receive an official welcome from a long standing member shortly.

I think we would require more information in order to answer your request. Maybe a particular route, time of year, departure point etc. Then I'm sure someone can help you on finding the best fare.

Safe flying.

That's your problem. Travelling in December but booking in late November means you'll be vying with business travellers for seats on what are probably already full aircraft.

Your best bet is to try a BA Holiday or, if you actually only want a one-way flight, to look at WestJet or (if they now fly from Canada), Norwegian.

I agree with previous posts if you live outside London the Black Friday Sale has been disappointing but after spending far too much time searching I found EDI - LHR - HKG - SAI leaving 31/12/17 returning SAI - DOH - EDI on 11/01/18 for £4600 in J for the two of us. Given EDI - HKG is currently £7600 we thought that was not a bad deal so we’re off to Vietnam for the first time . As a bonus we will be getting 500 tier points to help retain silver as well. We are on a mixture of BA, Cathay and Qatar so will be interested to compare with BA.

To confirm my own musing: the BA holidays pages now show "Bonus Avios" on the car options. Confusingly, even though the T+Cs say Group C and above only, the little bonus avios flag appears on Group A and B cars too

The Cathay A350 from HKG to SGN is lovely in J if you managed to snag that one. Loads better than CW, remember that if the IFE isn’t to your liking, a game of “Seat trim falling off bingo” is a good way to pass the time.
