this is insane, and funny in that when applying the BA AARP discount the breakdown is:
PassengerFareTaxes, fees and carrier charges per personTotal price**

1 Adult $500.00 $1,544.76 $2,044.76


The fare component on a First Class ticket in one of the most lucrative premium markets on the planet is $500.00 thats just bonkers.

Booked - Waiting to ticket

First post on FT. Just booked JFK-LHR 11/20 - 11/24. Was looking for award flights on those exact dates. Was able to use AARP and Chase discount for ~3600 for 2 pax. Pretty awesome deal.

Just ticketed.

Mine ticketed, no issues; booked a short weekend trip Dec 6-9th which worked out quite nicely for me as was trying to figure a comfortable way to get an extra 2K EQDs this year for AA EXP as I spent too much on DL and other airlines this year. Thanks OP!!

My usual JFK-LON-JER route is $1895 in F before AARP. Amazing value.

Silly quick question as I haven't used AARP before (this answer is prob in another forum, sorry!!)
Is the AARP $200 off per pax, or per reservation? That is, if I want to book for 2, should I book 2 separate tix to get double $200 discount? I'm signing up for AARP now
