Take everyone you know to Asia in business class for less than the price of coach! I don't know if Scarface has taken over the British Airways fare department, but they are clearly after someone again this week, offering round trip Club World fares to Hong Kong and beyond for a mere €1,106. This is a truly insane deal with seemingly wide open availability in May, June and July. To take advantage, you will need to position yourself in Berlin, Frankfurt or Munich (hence the price in Euros), which could be a great use of Avios. I have seen reports that when continuing on to further Asian destinations (for the same price) you will earn enough tier points for instant Silver status. Aside from an insane vacation deal, this could be a great way to retain status in style.
U.S. Readers, if you stacked the New York to Paris $1176 Round trip business class deal to position yourself in Europe, you could have two separate round trip business class flights, see Europe and Asia all in business class for less than $2,300 all in.
This fare is bookable using a trick which I laid out very clearly HERE. Essentially, you make the computer think you are booking these tickets (actually originating in Europe) from Hong Kong. You can book them on Britishairways.com by changing your location to Hong Kong and language presumably to English, if you are reading this. Using the British Airways website the tickets should price out in Euros. If you are having difficulty, you can alternately book on Expedia Hong Kong. In doing so, the ticket prices out in Hong Kong Dollars, which when converted, equals €1,106. For a mere €100 each way, you can add stopovers in Singapore or Kuala Lumpur, allowing you to visit the tropics on your way to the majesty that is Hong Kong.
Remember, these deals do not last. You have 24 hours to cancel (for travel outside of seven days from departure) risk free if you run into any issues. I learned the hard way last week that thinking often costs money in these situations. Book first, see if you can make it work and if you must, cancel and rebook. This is an incredible opportunity to take the whole family to Asia in Business Class. Please see FlyerTalk thread for additional info on available dates and tips. Of course you can read how to translate all the nonsense on the thread HERE.
