The best way to find the right fares and dates is by using Google flights and selecting British Airways as the airline and first class as the cabin class. You can then scroll through the calendar to find the cheapest fares. Once you’ve got the dates for you, click through to the airline’s website to book. 

British Airways is continuing their centennial celebrations with crazy low fares — yesterday we wrote about crazy Christmas Club World deals to New York and today it’s first class fares to the West Coast! Las Vegas (LAS), Seattle (SEA) and San José (SJC) are just a few of the destinations that we found to have these fares.

Fares are also available from all over the UK including Glasgow (GLA), Inverness (INV), Manchester (MAN), Newcastle (NCL) and London (LHR). The options below are not the entire list, so be sure to have a play around with departure airports in the UK as well as destinations in the USA!

First Class fares rarely drop below £2,000 return and the BA First Class experience really is quite something. As well as getting to experience the airline’s most exclusive cabin, you will get access to the British Airways Concorde Room in Heathrow’s Terminal 5 — the ultimate in airport lounge experiences (note: Las Vegas flights departs from Heathrow Terminal 3 which doesn’t have a Concorde Room).

This might be a great option to buy a cash fare as each-way would earn you 210 Tier Points. As a beginner to the game, this would earn you a total of 420 Tier Points, taking you straight into Bronze membership level. Even better if you’re flying from Glasgow (GLA), Inverness (INV), Manchester (MAN) or Newcastle (NCL) as these connecting flights will earn you 40 points extra a piece.
