BA First LHR to SFO r/t, $2,532

Found this r/t London Heathrow to SFO flight, direct for $2,532 for departure in June returning in November (A booking class). If it were not Corona times, I'd probably book it.

Looks like it can be had for as low as 1759. Nice option to credit to AS.

Sounds we also have from Madrid to many cities in the US in First by a mix with BA, IB, AA

MAD-MIA by LHR A380 : 2420 euros = https://flights.app.goo.gl/AQieX
MAD-NYC by LHR : 2420 euros = https://flights.app.goo.gl/PyFjm

Also: Dallas, Reno, Atlanta etc.

Careful if you book it : Better to do it by BA website because some IB direct flights are quoted as first and there's no first on IB so its wrong, just more clear when you use BA website as they publish 2 fares, business and first

Wouldnt IB owe you money since it would technically be a downgauge?

Great fare

I believe BA is scheduled to reintroduce normal catering next month. Not sure if mutant covid has changed those plans
