That's hilarious

2,279 with a saving of 72,808 ends up at 260,080. Bargain.

It is still there!!!! Here is the next page ......

To reproduce it - in Firefox, use the link from the homepage to the BA holiday sale and enter the dates and cabin class as shown in my first screenshot .... to be fair, the prices for the car rental have gone down slightly ...........

EDIT - hang on .... maybe this is the actual price to rent a car for 4 months ?!?!??!

Are you sure the price isn't Venezuelan Bolivars?

Seriously, if you need a car for that long couldn't you do a short term lease cheaper than renting? An example: https://www.hertz.ca/rentacar/misc/i...multimonth.jsp

Through Budget I put in those dates and it came to $3500 for a Chevy Malibu. Take a look at some of the subscription services too, Ford/ Lincoln has one and you could get a much nicer car for similar money. https://drivecanvas.com/app/?region=Los%20Angeles

No, it's a post-Brexit booking quoted in US $.

In a similar vein MMB says that I have paid for 12 extra checked bags on a TATL round trip in F. Together with the six bags we are already allowed that is a potential 1,260 pounds of luggage!

Is that the price or the weight?

As a BA Gold, wouldn't that be eight free bags plus your twelve paid-for bags? 640 kg - literally well over half a tonne!
