BA AMS-CPT 1,269 in business 440TP

Not sure if this has already been posted somewhere.

Just booked seats through OTA for January 2019 AMS-LHR-JNB-CPT rtn for 1,269 - books into I class, added booking to the app and it confirms it will earn 440TP.

There are a smattering of dates on ba.com as well at good fares 10 Jan 2019 back 23 Jan 2019 booked on ba.com in business AMS-LHR-CPT for 1,262.00 (although will earn fewer TPs)

You can get better than this - ba.com has it down to 1113 (1275) return on some dates.

Fare is available until at least March, mainly on a Thursday outbound for some odd reason.

May be even cheaper if you find dates that price and then plug those into the BA Holidays website, adding a cheap car hire (which you never collect) on top.

When I looked earlier today at the 10-23 Jan it was showing the 1113.00 fare, but a couple of hours later it had already increased, and only seemed to have 1 seat availability when I tried to book 2 the fare jumped. The advantage of the OTA fare is that it is via JNB which adds an extra 80TPs the ticket.

Looks like most days have gone (or going as I'm looking for two). Some Mondays in March seem open and I noticed that some routings fly back CPT-LHR / LGW AMS thus avoiding the checked bag dilemma. So I'm hoping that Mrs S will be up for this one with the bonus of not having to do HBO.

Yes, seems availability is quite limited.... trying for mid february.. but prices are much higher than the lowest of ~1250Euros. Wonder if it is because they are still opening up the inventory or....even trying with BA holidays, prices are not moving down for this one....

Cheers!

There still seem to be quite a few dates open say leaving 18 Feb back 28 Feb etc on skyscanner at the 1,250.00 price, but AMS-LHR-JNB-CPT route

I found the best option to pick the dates was via Matrix as that showed very clearly that the length of stay affected price. Managed to get 2 x 1250 / 1100 with AMS LHR CPT / CPT LHR LGW AMS routing. 20th to 26th March - and it looked like there were still some days at that level of price that week. Indeed I had a choice of 3 flights back at a 20 difference in fare (2 to LHR, 1 to LGW; 2 x 747 and 1 777).

Good luck

A piece of advice from recent experience: Leave ample time for the Domestic to International connection in JNB on the way back. Security + Passport Control add up to a double whammy of queues.
