Oneworld airlines British Airways and American are offering great deals to California in business class, out of Frankfurt, Dusseldorf, Berlin and London, with the lowest prices from German cities. Total price runs $1500 all in, which is about £1125 or €1300. Using just 4,500 points or a cheap flight, it could well be worth venturing to one of these cities, since the savings can be huge. It’s possible to route these deals advantageously to collect additional British Airways tier points as well.

The Dates You Can Travel

These deals are available exclusively around December 2019 Holidays starting December 23rd and then through all of January 2020. Not a bad way to start the New Year, for sure. For most dates, a Friday night stay is the only requirement. Don’t forget: you can upgrade to first for around 20k Avios each way, which is a steal…

  1. Argh! I live in San Francisco. I wish it started from here. Great deal, but if it’s roundtrip from London, I can’t see how it works.

    1. Best way to use these in this instance is if you’ll be making multiple London trips. If you are, you use points or a cheap deal to get to London, use this deal to get back to San Francisco and then use the return segment to get back to London for the later trip.
