London to Japan Business class
 
First post ever here, so please let me know if I am posting in the wrong place.

My wife and I are planning our 'trip of a lifetime' to Japan. We want to fly in mid-May 2019 (dates are flexible) and spend about 2 weeks there. We want to fly in business class as a treat. We are with British Airways and have just under 200k avios but I wont mind using other airlines or flying from another European city like Amsterdam or Frankfurt (we live in London). Just want to understand how to find the best prices now that ITA Matrix is not working (as it used to!). The best I have been able to find so far is around 4000 for 2 people (starting in Amsterdam). Would welcome any comments or suggestions.

Thanks in advance!

I'll start with some pointers. For a paid trip, you should keep an eye on our Premium Fare Deals Forum, where you might spot good fares that fit. Don't forget to read this forum sticky first to understand how Premium Fare Deals Forum works.

If you are trying to redeem your Avios for this trip, British Airways | Executive Club Forum will be the ideal forum.

I will alert MOD to relocate, if needed, your thread to a better home.

I you want to fly BA or earn BA TPs and Avois, the BA exEU fares in business, such as the AMS fare you found, are generally good. Look for a discussion of this in the big exEU thread in the BA forum here on FT.

May not be particularly useful to you at this point in time, but if you can gather 180k Virgin miles you can redeem them for ANA flights. It costs 90k Virgin miles for a return business flight from Europe to Japan. It also has (in my view) a better business product than BA.

Hi,

Welcome to flyertalk!

I would also look at other one world airlines ( you can earn British Airways Avios by flying with them in an applicable fare class which should be most business class fares)

The obvious examples are : Finnair ( going via Helsinki)
Cathay Pacific going via Hong Kong from many european destinations

Qatar ( going via Doha)
There is also Malaysian and Iberia ( not sure if the MAD- Tokyo flight is daily)
