British Airways (and its transatlantic joint venture partners) is currently offering some extremely good Business Class fares to the USA, originating in Luxembourg. Multiple destinations are available, but the stand out deal is probably Miami for as little as £772 return:
What is fantastic about these fares is that they seem widely available at similar prices all the way through to September 2021. Hopefully, travel will be back to something more like normal by then.
For just ~£35 more, you can book direct with British Airways too. Given the current uncertainties, you want to keep things simple, so I would recommend paying the extra to book direct.
You can see how wide open the dates available are on Google Flights here:
There are lots of other destinations available for excellent fares too – here are just a few of the best deals:
- Boston: £797
- San Francisco: £925
- Dallas: £979
How many Avios/miles can I earn?
Obviously it depends on the destination and the exact route you select. If you’re looking for cheap British Airways Tier Points, it’s possible to deliberately book an indirect route and build in various connecting flights into your itinerary.
For a relatively simple Luxembourg-London Heathrow-San Francisco return itinerary though, a BA Executive Club member without elite status would earn ~ 17,500 Avios and 360 Tier Points.
If you value those Avios at about 1p each, it brings your net cost down to about £750. Whether it’s fair to value Avios at 1p right now is a different question…
These really are superb Business Class fares. The fact you can book direct with BA for just a little more than the very lowest prices, and that the fares are available for dates all the way through to September 2021, makes them even better.
