Arrow Premium Fare Deals | 2019 edition

This thread is a continuation of the ever popular Premium Fare Deals | 2018 edition thread.

So, once again, please post here all those fares that earn Tier Points in the BAEC programme and that originate in Europe (or in rare occasions elsewhere). Please try and limit side discussions to a minimum, as this thread seems to be a valuable resource for people looking for a good deal and we want to keep them easy to find.

Also a gentle reminder that there is a BA sales thread and a very, very good Tier Point Run thread where you can discuss those specific topics.

There is also a WT/WTP deals thread around, if you find a great deal in that category.

Quick reminder of the ideas:
  • If you add a fare, please also add a link to (or the name of) the site where you can book it to make it easier for others to book the fare. You can use Google flight search but it helps if you have checked the actual booking link.
  • Fares should not be part of a well published sale. For that use When is the next BA sale?
  • If a fare is a complex itinerary, optimising TPs and under GBP 2,50 per TP, please post it in the BA Tier Point Runs | 2018 master thread
  • Please focus on fares ex-UK or ex-EU
  • As this thread is meant for good deals that provide TPs on BAEC, please feel free to add exEU or exUK fares on BA, QR, IB, CX, AA or other OW partners to popular destinations.
  • Please post possible mistake fares / obscure routings in the MR forum under Premium Fare Deals and provide a link in a post in this thread.
  • If you found the fare elsewhere (on FT or a blog), please credit the original source in your post in the thread.
  • Thank you for your contribution(s) !

ARN-SYD on CX 2100GBP. Via LHR, possible to take daytime flight back from HKG and go to ARN next day. HKG stopover also possible.
A few hundred quid less than I've seen on this route. Couldn't see it on ITA, bookable on CX.com
Only checked dates in November

Have found some more interesting SIN flights.

OSL-CPH-SIN and back £1276 with SAS for the hop to CPH and then SQ for dates in OCT.
ARN-DOH-SIN on Qatar is £1340
MXP-LHR-SIN on BA is £1383

Best prices are on skyscanner it seems.
I have definitely got the fever now and am spending an in ordinate amount of time researching flights..
Paying Dividends though as that £1276 is lowest Ive seen so far..

Thanks for the above, I noted an open-jaw with BA on MXP-LHR-SIN / HKG-LHR-DUS is £1,595 in J for those mourning the loss of the BKK routings, and J on CX between SIN and HKG one-way with Avios is 20K and £45 in taxes. Possibly could get better via an OTA then BA direct on the airfare, but keeps options open to UuA to F on the A380 each way.

I hoping to get under 5k for the 4 or us but not sure if that's going to be realistic.

do you guys know anything about an Hawaii Deal ex-EU in October? Would be awesome. Hawaii is on my list anyway and I am 850 TP short of gold for the year May 19 - May 20. Maybe there is an opportunity to combine collecting TP with an holiday?

Thanks in Advance.

Hoping for a similar price in August, nearly had it with the recent MXP-BKK about a problem with my company TA meant I couldn’t get it. Closest I have so far is the AMS-BKK on BA for £1300. Would much rather take QR though.

What dates have you got ARN-DOH-SIN for £1340? The cheapest I've seen is £1550 throughout the year on Google and Skyscanner with QR.

The OSL-CPH-SIN deal seems to be during peak holiday period as well and I am very tempted to book for August now. Works out at £5100 for 4 which is pretty good to be on SQ with the new business class by the looks of it.
Add £200 for positioning flight in J using points and still not bad.

Just beware that SQ new business class is only on six A380s, the 77Ws have the 2013 edition which is not wonderful and has the problem of the leg rest only rising to 45 degrees and if you want to put your feet up rather than lie flat you have to twist to an angle to achieve it.
