British Airways is back with their buy business, fly first promotion.
British Airways business class isn’t a very good product so if you can get into first you want to.
Here are the key terms:
- Business class tickets booked into R, D, C, or J are eligible (notably deeper discount I fares are not eligible)
- Must purchase by March 30, and travel outbound by April 16 with all return travel complete by April 22
- You have to fly on aircraft with a first class cabin in both directions except that you can fly one way between London City and New York JFK and still request the upgrade in the other direction between New York and Heathrow.
Flights must be booked through a travel agent or with British Airways by phone, it cannot be booked online. Tokyo and Doha are excluded as well as flights between London Gatwick and Barbados, Bermuda, Cancun, Fort Lauderdale, St. Lucia, Oakland, Orlando, Port of Spain and Tampa.
Only residents of some European countries are eligible — UK, Belgium, Germany, Greece, Denmark, Finland, France, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, Norway Sweden, Spain and Switzerland — however Greek residents aren’t eligible for destinations outside North America and Norwegian residents are only eligible for destinations outside North America. And you only get to upgrade in one direction.
This promotion has been live since last month but Robb just prompted me about it this morning.
