Dubai is bundles of sand, sun and fun, and may in fact be where much of the England team goes to cool off after a heartbreaking loss. British Airways is offering a £66 discount for long haul flights over £300, which takes the already exceptionally good deals to Dubai down to a mere £530 round trip, for direct flights from London. That’s a bargain in itself, but if you’ve got Avios Points, you can take advantage of the excellent upgrade availability on this route to secure round trip business class by using roughly 40,000 points round trip, or 20,000 one way. That’s a deal.
