Ok, so BA haven't had great press recently, but they've just started their sale and there does seem to be some good deals going...

London Heathrow to New York (JFK) from £299 return
London Heathrow to Dubai from £325 return
London Heathrow to Boston (Logan Intl) from £309 return
London Heathrow to Bermuda from £409 return
London Heathrow to Los Angeles (Intl) from £389 return

Nothing out standing (unlike the Air New Zealand sale last year!), but hopefully this may save someone some cash!

Don't forget, you might not get a refund if they go on strike. As they might say this comes under circumstances beyond their control...

That's what my wife just said as well, doesn't care if its next to nothing, with the recent fiasco, you'll be lucky to board the plane. Not voting.

No matter how people vote on this deal there's no chance the High Court will overturn it.

And you know this because you have friends and family who are cabin crew?

Or are you just regurgitating what you read in the papers?

How about the corrupt, incompetent bosses who failed to hedge against rising fuel prices?

No, no just blame the workers! They're lucky to have a job! :thumbsup:

VIRGIN ATLANTIC SALE HAS STARTED


However, data from the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) revealed that while the average Virgin cabin crew salary was £14,400 per annum, BA paid its staff £29,900. BA's pilots earned on average £107,600 a year, while Virgin and Easyjet pilots earned £89,500 and £71,400 respectively.

£3.7 billion hole in their pension fund, losing millions BA will be lucky to survive the year. Just what they need is a strike.

I'm glad you're all boycotting BA so I can get my tickets cheap ;-)

I've been travelling with BA for years and I have to say they're my favourite.

You can always get your money bank through the credit card company or travel insurance if BA refuse to issue a refund (which I very much doubt unless they're going bankrupt or something).

Tickets only get cheap when folk are buying them at full price in the 1st place ! :roll:

For me it's not so much a boycott but a poor gamble. You might get your money back for the flight but what about the time off work? The hotel fees and other related expenses that go along with any holiday.

We know they're going to vote to strike soon, we know the company is teetering on the brink. Go ahead and fill your boots but don't come back in tears when they go on strike and leave you out of pocket and stuck at home.

(I've probably flown with BA more times than some cabin crew and they've deteriorated a lot, so much so I'll try as much as possible to fly with a different airlines if I can)

Not true - the emptier the airplane the cheaper the ticket, so cheap tickets go first.

In other words, and using your logic, tickets only get expensive when people buy the cheap ones ;-)

Feel even more sorry for the Virgin cabin crews. £14k ain't much to live on. Any figures for their allowances and discretionary bonuses?

Perhaps then, like many companies, British Airways shouldn't have taken a "pension holiday" during the good times. :thumbsup:

Well you can blame Tony Blair and Gordon Brown for that. They thought it was a good idea to remove tax relief on pension fund contributions so BA and many others simply paid profits in dividends instead.

Feck up the economy and the country as a whole then retire on a state-funded, taxpayer-guaranteed, inflation-proof pension - nice one New Labour:thumbsup:

I think (but I am not sure) that the figures are for both including bonuses.

Cabin staff, after all, are relatively well paid - the average pay, including bonuses and allowances is £29,000 while cabin service directors receive £56,000 and their benefits in terms of free travel are considerable.

thats wrong they wernt going on strike because of pay they were going on strike because like lots of companys these days they lie to there staff about there profits and are severlly mismanged.dont forget the ba staff took a few months were they got either no wage or pay cut but all the while the m,anagers were pocketing big bonuses and promising no lay offs then a document was found proving it was all a lie and they still intended to lay of thousands.

i hope one day you get treated by an employer thats if you have got a job and see if youll put up with being lied to a treated like crap..

i say good on the staff you need to take a stand and i wont be buying any ba tickets so they can make profits whilst treat there workers poorly.

well said mate..theyve messed up every single so called state owned buisness the royal mail pension defict is a joke its over 10 billion in the red thats why i know it will kick of big time after xmas.today at royal mail was the most depressing day weve all ever had even the boss looked like he wanted to cry we were understaffed and higher management wouldnt give us any tempory workers or any more vans to finish our parcel deliverys with. so some wont get xmas presents until after xmas :(
we all stood by our manager and told him most of us would stay out all day of needed just to clear everything and he was happy all we needed was another 5-7 hire vans so we could fill them up and stay out and clear everything.he contacted his higher bosses and they refused they said they can wait until next week they would not authorise any more vans to clear parcels.
ive never known that in my entire time working as a postman we were all distgusted the manager just put his head down thanked everyone then filled his own car up to try and as many out as he can (even though if caught he could get sacked himself)
this is the new labour attitude of all bosses not just royal mail the higher managers seem hellbent to destroy the once beloved british companys they dont care about workers they dont care about customers all they care about is what bonuses they can get and dont give a monkeys how they treat people to get it .then they reverse it and blame the workers when quized on tv to try and turn the country against us.

this xmas has proved to all postmen that head management no longer want a postal service they want it destroyed and ba managers are the same they dont want ba anymore.

Can't find any good deals during school holidays. Looks like I'm going to boycott BA too ;-)
#21
Debt can be managed - Amazon, Chunnel, Royal Mail, Ocado, RBS, HBOS... as long as the debtors can see eventual repayment - Thats what an MBA taught me for £30K!!!

BA need to sort out the mess or they will fold - But the Unions are mental to wind up the public this way.

Finally, MP expenses - Please make me an MP and will not claim a single penny in expenses - I'll make do with the £80K, the massive holiday, the solid gold pensions and 4 yearly appraisal...

Pay for your plane with an RBS credit card so the state can pay when they go bust!

The flight i wanted is actually £12.00 more than last week !

Without going into my feelings for BA and impending strike action, I would highlight a few points from BA's website...

1. The sale says "book by 26 January 2010" - I understand this deal is open till 26th Jan. If that is the case then perhaps there is a chance we get a clearer picture about the strike by then?

2. BA's website mentions -

British Airways Holidays are ATOL protected

Peace of mind
If you book a package holiday or a flight + hotel and/or car, your booking will be ATOL protected, under British Airways Holidays ATOL5985. Our ATOL protects you from losing your money or being stranded abroad.

Financial Protection
The CAA will ensure that you are financially protected and that you are not stranded abroad.

Book with confidence
Rest assured that when you book one of our air inclusive holidays your travel arrangements will be fully ATOL protected.

Although I wouldn't pin much hope on this deal but it is worth waiting to see how things unfold in new year and then perhaps take a chance as the money is secure anyways and also considering the fact that BA's service is by far the best. :whistling:

So let me get this straight; the government do something that is for the good for the people and a company happen to take advantage, that's then the governments fault! wow you should be running the country obviously. :whistling:

Can't see anything especially cheap about the prices of the tickets I'm interested in.
London - Singapore £350 each way inc tax.

Last year (Sept 2009) Singapore Airlines did me the whole return trip for £296 inc all taxes. Now that was a sale.

Maybe some fares are a bit cheaper but I'm not seeing anything particularly good here myself. Pity.
