Here we go again...

Yes, it is likely there will be a sale.
No, no one will be able to tell you when that might be...

DFS is a sofa retailer here in the UK, they have a constant sale on, although they try to deny it. They even take the mick out of themselves for it in their own tv adverts

In recent years there has been a sale late August.....I would expect something similar this year.

If you subscribe to this thread I will be updating as soon as anything is known (officially or otherwise!!)

A paid for seat versus an empty seat...
Wonder which of the two BA make money on?

Contrary to the run of this and similar threads,I will book in the next sale and not a moment sooner.
Why? because my travel plans are notional and also extra travel by me depends on price.
Theres a price level at which I become interested in buying.

Yours etc
