Booking 'mixed class' for multi city BA holiday

I'm just looking at taking the kids to Orlando (apparently I've effectively committed child abuse by having waited so long...), but if I have to go through that ordeal I'm thinking to tag on a bit of NY at the start and MIA at the back to turn it into a real holiday. Having given the kids a taste of CX J on a trip to Oz last year i need to reset their entitlement meters so we will go out in WT, however as the return leg will inevitably be overnight I will probably succumb to WT+ or CW for my own sanity as much as anything.

Whilst it seems easy to book a mixed class on a straight return, I am struggling to achieve the same using BA Holidays. I've also tried the 'Multi-City' tool but similarly it will only offer me one or the other. I am sure there must be a way... thanks for any pointers!

(Just to add, I also intend to go via DUB to minimise queuing at US immigration...that may complicate matters further.)

I think the issue is using BA Holidays. If you want to book it just as a BA flight then no worries. Adding the extras of a holiday can mess up the ability to pick and choose on the flights. Why book it as a holiday? Plenty of good options doing it individually.

Need to phone. I done something similar earlier this year, phoned up to book
  • INV-LHR - Economy
  • LHR-JFK - PE upgraded to BC using Avios
  • JFK - LHR - PE
  • LHR-GLA - Economy
Booked a hotel in Universal and hire car at the same time. Phoned up a few months later and added JFK-MCO return and I'm keeping my eye on BA Holidays prices for hotels in NYC and may add that as well.

You can't book multi city multi class flights on the web site.

I'm off to watch some cricket after Christmas and have LGW - BGI in WT+ and UVF - LGW in J. All booked via the BA gold line

The main reason is the ability to pay for (most of) it next year

Thank you - this is pretty much the sort of approach I was intending to take.

I presume the gold line won't do holidays, but I may be wrong. Still, now you've mentioned it, maybe I should take Mrs Jayhatch for some Caribbean sunshine after Christmas...

Before or after you drop the kids off at Orlando?
