Switzerland/Italy/Sweden to East & West Coast USA in WTP (PE) 600/690 (3x Avios)

EDIT: I see that I forgot the airline. Its of course BA.

For those who missed the WTP deal to SIN...

You can do the East coast from Switzerland for around 630.
Or from TRN for 600
Also available is SFO and LAX from TRN for 640.

Basically try Italian airports as a starting point.

Very interesting with the current 3x Avios promo....

€530 to the East and €570 to the West. I missed that one. Thanks!

Also works from GOT at €4 less.

(I will ask a mod to add Sweden to the title)

Thanks. I'm not flying this either. My flight schedule is booked for most of the year...

It seems that INV as a starting point can be similarly priced but you need to look on BA.com. It is a bit harder to find the low price though.

GOT-LAX is what I've got in mind, also around 480 still. Should recoup about 50k for a BA Gold if I've calculated correctly.

Hawaii also in mix if not looking ONLY for MR/TP Run.

Obviously AA/AS connections to hawaiian islands are in economy but its a good price.

INV-OGG including PE on LHR-LAX legs for EUR880 seen :-)

I have seen that for €832.... I left it out because it contains 3 flights in economy but I agree it is a good deal if you want to make a special holiday out of it. Also the SEA-HNL (or OGG) flights don't give 3x Avios.

henkybaby , thanks for pointing out these great fares. I presume these are DIF fares?

Thanks

Does anybody know the fare basis?
I did a quick search on ExpertFlyer but the fare is not coming up there.

A quick question if you don't mind. I have only ever used GUF from CW>F what should one expect to pay in taxes extra for WT+>CW?

Thanks

I searched the flight with Matrix using: BA+ /f bc=T

It looks like I must improve my EF skills. Matrix show Fare basis: QJX0S4T1 which is DIF! Sorry
