Is £300 each way worth it for a first class upgrade from business class? If the answer is yes, there’s an amazing deal for you today. British Airways has round trip first class on sale for £1600 round trip, to a variety of destinations well into 2021. If it’s always been a dream to breeze through the Concorde Room or stretch out in your own first class PJ’s, Black Friday cometh early!

British Airways Flash First Class Deals

Black Friday is coming up (and we have a master list of all the best deals), but this year many of the best airlines deals will be long gone by the time November 27th comes around. Today’s £1600 first class fares are proof.

Rather than some crazy connections and flying to another city to grab a deal, you can fly direct from London to a variety of US cities including New York City, Seattle, San Francisco and more, all under £2000 round trip. The best deals are widely available at around £1600, and should include BA’s “new” first class suite.

Some top offers include…

  • ~£1600 London to New York
  • ~£1600 London to Boston
  • ~£1700 London to Seattle
  • ~£1700 London to Denver
  • ~£1800 London to Austin
  • ~£1800 London to San Francisco
  • ~£1800 London to Vancouver
  • ~£1900 London to Mexico City

You can find all these deals with the BA low fare finder selecting “first class”.

The Dates You Can Fly

These deals are for 2021, with the lowest priced opportunities in May, June, September and October. You’ll do best looking for Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday or Sunday departures.

With that said, there are prices within a couple hundred in almost every month, but if you want the real ‘brag to your friend’ low deals, then those are your best bets.

British Airways actually makes it really easy to find these deals, via their low fare finder (link). Just click “first class” rather than “economy” and you’ll have a list of the lowest current price to each city, and it’ll pull up a calendar of when they’re available. Easy, right?

How To Book These Flights

These bargains aren’t likely to last very long, and are a positive sign that even lower prices are soon to come for business class. But hey, you only live once, and first class from London for £1600 is just about unheard of.

You can book these deals directly with British Airways.

Don’t forget that if you add a hotel package or flight + car rental package using BA Holidays that you can pay over time, with no interest, and the final amount isn’t due until a few weeks before departure. Fun way to fly first class without a massive purchase strain!

  1. Wow Gib what an amazing offer, adding in 80 6K of Avios just booked 2 FIRST CLASS round trips to NYC for October next year (including seat selection!) For £3020!
    thank you for all your amazing offers! as always the GSTP IS only way to travel

  2. The price is nice, but not outstanding considering the current product. Pre-pandemic this would be really great, but now it should be the norm considering the cutbacks.
