You can’t quite beat flying in first class, and you can’t quite beat these prices in first class during the school holidays to cities across the United States with British Airways. You can get to Nashville for as low as £1,998 return and New York from £2,296 — around £1,000 less than the usual prices. There are also great fares to the West Coast with San Francisco coming in at £2,064 return.

Not only will you get to experience the best of British Airways’ hospitality, you’ll also earn yourself a decent stack of extra Tier Points. Retaining your BA and Oneworld status or upgrading to the next tier can be invaluable if you’re a frequent flyer. For example, a return flight to San Francisco (SFO) in First would earn 210 Tier Points each way, earning you a total of 420 TPs. That’s more than two-thirds of the amount of points required to retain Silver status for another year.
