British Airways First Class is a fantastic way to cross the pond and often prices in a flat out nosebleed prices ( like $7k+). Recently, British Airways has been promoting more and more fares out of cities like Inverness Scotland that allow these aspirational flights to be had for much, much less. Today, Secret Flying, released an incredible deal where you can fly roundtrip from Europe to North America ( via Inverness and Vancouver ) for just over $2k. That’s a darn good business class fare let alone flying in BA’s best. Let’s take a look at the offer and how you can lock it down yourself.
Available dates to Vancouver
You can search on Google Flights to figure out what makes the most sense for you, but I found dates starting in October and going until early next year. You can stay for as little as a few days to well over 2 months.
There are dates to Chicago as well for a bit more….$2100 give or take
San Francisco for $2500 give or take
What’s British Airways First Class like?
Endless fancy bubbles, large reverse herringbone seats, pjs, fine scotch, and access to exclusive lounges – read our A380 and 747 reviews here. BA First is a big step up from their current business class as we discussed here.
I always credit mine to Alaska these days
A while back Alaska introduced an incredible partner earn chart for flights credited to Alaska, but flown on British Airways.
- First – 150% Cabin bonus ( both RDM and EQM) + 200% promotional bonus (RDM)
Just calculating the miles for the longhaul first class portion to Vancouver using Milecalc.com you’ll earn over 40k miles. Have MVP Gold or 75k? You’ll crack 50k
You can book using one of our affiliate links if you want to help us out – Orbitz , Travelocity, or Expedia. We’ll earn a small commission
You can also book this straight through British Airways. If you choose to book through an airline’s direct site, make sure leverage cards like the American Express Platinum which earns 5x points on all direct to airline purchases. It’s one of the 10 reasons we think the card is worth the annual fee.
