any luck for a sale in USA?

I am still looking and waiting. I need to purchase 4 tixs and the cost remained the same since I started looking after Christmas. I wish BA will post sale so that I can set the trip in stone!

I am awaiting that sale as well. Any thoughts from the assembled cognescenti on when to expect an Ex-USA sale?

Welcome to FT Hinko

I don't have much info on recent promotions from The Netherlands. The only thing I have noted in the past was a post about some good fares in May 2010: ex-AMS May 2010

If you do a sale please post back!

Do you have a link for the France sale? (I try and record non-UK sales on post #3 of this thread: Post #3

New on the BA website today, some destinations are now on sale in July and August in WT according to BA's sale banner.

A cursory look suggests some savings of 100-150 on the previous peak fares (although I didn't record the peak fares - its just too hard to capture everything!).

You are not going to get to NYC for 400 but it is cheaper than last week and as it is school holidays and the Olympics probably as good as you'll get for this peak period unless BA have over-estimated demand and need to sell seats off nearer the time.

Looks like more Club fares may be being loaded - certainly SFO is now available at 2,323.

Will do a full check tomorrow once the low fare finder has caught up and update Post #549

Wonder if we'll see some decent First fares?!

Finally Ex-USA sale fares

BA apparently just began its sale today from flights originating in US. Ticketing must be completed by 1/24/12. My ticketing was completed about one hour ago . Cheers.

However, it's worth noting that one should always check the fare rules. Although I haven't done a comprehensive search, there are some catches: I happened to notice that for some destinations (BOM, MAA and HYD for example), the "ticket by" date is 10 January 2012 (as opposed to 24 January 2012 for the bulk of the sale fares).
Looks like they are still available but now only through March. I'm sure they were previously for most of the year....

No, as far as I can see nothing's really changed other than the extension to 24 Jan.

The previous fares were:-
TRAVEL RESTRICTIONS: VALID FOR TRAVEL COMMENCING ON/AFTER 20DEC11 AND ON/BEFORE 31MAR12.
SALES RESTRICTIONS: TICKETS MUST BE ISSUED ON/BEFORE 10JAN12.

The current fares are:-
TRAVEL RESTRICTIONS: VALID FOR TRAVEL COMMENCING ON/AFTER 11JAN12 AND ON/BEFORE 31MAR12.
SALES RESTRICTIONS: TICKETS MUST BE ISSUED ON/AFTER 11JAN12 AND ON/BEFORE 24JAN12.

I've only looked at BOM and MAA, but they're the same so I think it likely that the other "book by 10 Jan" fares have been similarly refiled.

Upgradable?

I've been itching to burn Avios thanks to the Chase BA Visa 100,000 sign up bonus. If I buy one of these PE sale fares can I use Avios to move up to Biz?

Yes you can but ONLY if there is Club World (Biz) reward seats available.

It depends on your route and when you plan to go. Some routes are much harder to find than others.

That's good to know. Dallas and Houston are my likely choices, I'll start checking ExpertFlyer for inventory. Thanks.

Good luck!

Out of curiosity when are you planning to travel?? Remember availability is very scarce in the summer months especially this year due to the Olympics.

Late March - early April.

Just learned that BA inventory is not available on ExpertFlyer. I called BA but was told only an Executive Club agent could confirm whether Club World is available for the dates I chose and that office was closed for the night so will check tomorrow.
