Return to Europe from $360 inc

Found this on another site, and did a search so hopefully this isn't a dupe post.

SFO - LHR WT+ fares for $550! If only we could get that ex-UK.

I know, as soon as you change country of departure it states it's not valid

Unbelievable fares, especially for this time of year. So... what's the catch?

Also, the promo page mentions other European (non-UK) destinations, but I haven't found any that don't significantly raise the fare.

I know..I can't believe how cheap it is. I priced my BOS-LHR flight out and I'm paying 1/2 of what the regular ba.com price is. I'm so glad I saw the link on fatwallet.com-I came here to post it but noticed someone else aready posted it.

Great Fare!

Any idea how I could combine this fare with a connection from SAN? via LAX, PHX or SFO?

Could always buy a separate ticket, but would prefer to combine the whole trip on one PNR if at all possible.

Cheers,

bonzo

What a nightmare! A rtn WT+ is $200 cheaper than the WT+ rtn I bought 2 weeks ago... Tried doing a refund, but only the taxes are refundable.

Grrrr.... That is so annoying

I had a look through the Exec Club website and although the fare was booked on days where the discount was available it showed me the fare I booked last week when I went through the 'Book and Upgrade' option.

Cant be MFU'd on line, but it does state that they are "T" fares, which in theory are MFU-able. A call to BAEC should get it done.

I was just about to book flights today form IAD and MFU it, glad I "stumble" on the thread over at Mileage Run as I did not see it here.

I also thought the $740 price was never going to get any better, so much so I was worried that price would end yesterday

Thanks for this Tip

Thanks for posting that link. I booked a RT from ATL to LGW yesterday for only $531 RT in WT+. I hadn't flown BA on a paid ticket for a few years due to the disappointment in the awarding of FF miles on discounted tickets. For this price I couldn't say no and besides, I do miss the good service on the transatlantic flights.
