The best way to find the right fares and dates is by using Google Flights and selecting British Airways as the airline and business 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 British Airways’ website to book.
We’ve written before about the amazing savings to be had by starting your journey in mainland Europe rather than the UK. While premium economy flights from London to Brazil can be well over £1,000 return per person, by starting your journey in nearby Paris (CDG) instead, you can fly business class to Rio De Janeiro (GIG) for the same price. This means lounge access, priority service, a lie-flat bed, Champagne and enough Tier Points to earn Executive Club Bronze status.
For these deals, you must commence your journey in Paris. If you skip the first leg of this bargain itinerary, the rest of it will be cancelled. Paris can be easily reached on the Eurostar, or is an easy Reward Flight Saver redemption option.
This deal is available for various departures on Wednesdays to Saturdays in August, September, November and December this year, including over Christmas. Christmas Day on Copacabana Beach, anyone?
