Update 2: Fares have gone up by $400.
Update: A commenter points out that if you register here and fly by 01/31 you’ll earn an additional 25K bonus Avios on top of the base 10,379 Avios from a JFK-LHR flight and the 3,789 Avios you would earn by using your Chase British Airways Visa. That’s a total potential haul of 39,168 Avios from booking this great deal!
Alternatively, you can register here for 25K bonus AA miles.
British Airways has business class fares between several US cities and London on sale for just $2,015. Travel is valid from now through next summer and must be booked by tomorrow, though this stackable savings offer may end at any time.
A Saturday stay is required.
Here’s how to knock down the price to $1,089 round-trip.
-Use this link to access the BA AARP site.
AARP members get $400 off BA business class tickets. Anyone can join AARP for $16. Just click “Log in to your AARP account here” to join AARP for $16 or to login to your existing AARP account. (And it’s always worth a laugh when my guests wonder why I have “AARP The Magazine” in my stack of bathroom reading material 😀 )
Creating an account takes just a minute and as soon as you open an account you can make a login and then unlock the BA offer which can be used an unlimited amount of times.
Only 1 passenger needs to have an AARP account.
Once you are logged in just use the BA AARP link again (you may need to click on “verify membership) and search for a flight from NYC to London in business class.
Select a British Airways flight option (the American flight options won’t be further discounted on the next page) and on the next screen locate the promotion code or eVoucher field and enter the following code for 10% off with a Chase Visa: CARDOFFERU
Officially that’s intended for Chase British Airways Visa cardholders, though other Chase Visa cards will work as well. You will earn 3 Avios per dollar if you use your BA Visa.
That code brought down the price to just $1,083 per passenger round-trip in business class!
This fare isn’t supposed to work for trips on the all-business class flight from London City Airport that makes a pre-clearance stop in Shannon so that you don’t need to clear customs in JFK, but it priced out for me just fine as you can see in the screenshot above.
In addition to having a lie-flat bed you’ll also be able to check up to 3 bags of up to 70 pounds each.
Each passenger will also earn 10,379 Avios or 8,627 AA miles/10,353 EQPs for the trip from JFK-LHR.
Cancellations are permitted within 24 hours for free over the phone. After 24 hours the fee is a whopping $500 per ticket.
