But will BA honour a mistake in the fare?

£1052 is low but we've seen similar flight prices in the past. It's probably close to the CW service value...

We need to move away from the phrase, 'mistake'.

I have a pair of redemption flights with a 241 to Durban in November, back in December. The same flights are on at this price. Really in 2 minds here.

Bear in mind that School holidays will start early December, and the Durban beaches will be full of matriculants (school leavers) from late November, on the equivalent of a US Spring break. (I.e drunk and loud)

A tad unsporting of the OP to post the offer and then attempt to delete it.

The fare seems widely available most Thursday & Saturdays in November/December.

FYI I was searching for 2 business class seats when price found.
