Cheap BA flights to a variety of destinations.

Please select europe for best prices

If you click the sale banner at the top of this page, apparently you can get a fuirther £20 off.

The prices listed for european destinations are for one way flights, but i looked up a flight to budapest leaving on the 1 and returning the 8th of July came in £111.70 - excellent price for a qaulity airline like BA in peak summer period - plus you can get a further £20 off apparently.

Just thought id post and let you know :)

#2

#3
Only some, the rest arent going anywhere.

BA - never again IMHO!
#5
To be fair to BA (or as I like to call them Baggage AWOL) apparently BAA are largely to blame- they are responsible for the baggage system in T5...issue was a *** test plan for the baggage system (BAA's Spanish owner is strapped for money so they probably tried to cost cut).

Still BA knowing that BAA had a **** tests plan should have either put pressure on BAA to let them move flights across across to T5 at a very slow rate or gone public with the issues (tough option though)

BRITISH AIRWAYS IS ONE OF THE WORST AIRLINES IN THE WORLD!!!!

£111.70 is expensive!!!

you can get better prices if you book earlier with lufthansa
#10
They only allow one peice of checked baggage per person on Economy. For that reason alone, I will avoid travelling on BA to Hong Kong. Voted cold.

Nope, wrong. BAA installed the baggage system, but it was BA's responsibility to train their staff in its use. It's useful knowing someone who works for BAA ;)
#13
I would avoid like the plague, flew to JFK with BA I would never do it again. I have since flown Virgin and AA miles better
banned#14
Avoid - I accidentally put "Mrs" instead of "Mr" as my title on a booking. Everything else correct. Rang up 6 months in advance when I realised my error - their response "It's £30 to make a change or you can re-book the flight".

Cracking customer service - thanks a bunch BA. £30 to change one digit. As a result my honeymoon to Africa will be booked with Virgin! Stuff em!
#15
I wouldnt fly BA again, even if they gave me the flight for free.
I've had more problems with BA than with all other airlines put together !! And thats before taking into account the national embarrassment and disgrace that is T5

It's hard to say who are the bigger shower of sh**s when it comes to absolute p**s poor customer service - BA or Ryanair.

Then BA shouldnt have accepted T5 at handover !

Ahh, but ... the chances of that one piece of luggage making to Hong Kong are somewhere between zero and the square root of f*** all :w00t:

Well if anybody is looking for flights to new york in the near future, ebookers have Gatwick to JFK via Detroit(NWA) on the 5,6 or 7 May returning a week later for £170.20+ 1% quidco.

Not relevant to this thread but may be of use to somebody.
#19
Extra £20 off seems to be for long haul flights only. Being logged in doesn't seem to reduce the price £20 for Budapest anyway, unless i am missing something.
#20
Good find, bargain fare to central asia. Thanks
#21
To provide a little bit of balance, I fly BA on average three return trips a month, both Europe and long-haul, plus occasional other carriers, and find BA to be above average. I can't believe that people are suggesting US-based airlines as alternatives.
(For Europe, who cares, it's only a short time anyway)

Lufthansa are terrible. I've flown MAN-FRA-YVR with them and won't be doing again in a hurry. Complete shambles.

Personally I've never had any problems with BA and have flown with them around 60 times.

T5 was a fiasco, however it's not suprising considering BAA are owned by Spaniards.

BA shouldn't have tried to move lock-stock-and-barrell in one go. I think they might have realised that now!!
#23
Sorry to be off topic here, but are Air France any good? Booked a few flights to NYC with them but never flown before so no idea if they are good or not :o
#24
recently flew BA to nyc and they were great, wouldn't touch T5 with a barge pole until its proven though

Budapest wouldnt be considered long haul. Although it is a great place to visit :)

BRITISH AIRWAYS IS ONE OF THE WORST AIRLINES IN THE WORLD!!!!

How many airlines in the world have you travelled? Obviously not many or have just been unlucky on BA. They finish very high in overall satisfaction and in some classes are ranked number one in independent studies in the world.

£111 is good when you consider £60 is tax. Try and find a cheaper one. If you book early on many airlines it is cheaper this is standard.
Anyway how do Lufthansa fly London to Budapest? Think you have to use Malev Hungarian Airlines or BA ? Or take a non direct route.

Hope you know your name now !

Virgin T&Cs
Change the passenger name or flight: name changes are not permitted.

You have to cancel and rebook !

Though Virgin Holidays say an amendment fee of £25 per person.

That's a good price. A quick look gives typical prices £200-£250 per person return.

There isn't much competition - BA will be your only direct scheduled carrier from the UK. All others will be via a change at a European hub.

However if you can fly from Luton you can do it from about £90 return with Wizz, or GermanWings from Stansted for about £250

That price you have found is the lowest in the next 12 months with BA for that route as far as I can see.

BA = Bl**dy Awful

Cheap, yes..... but no thanks! Had too many problems with them... cancellations, delays, lost baggage and the worst catering i`ve experienced of any airline.

Best Airlines IMHO:
CSA Czech Airlines
Virgin Atlantic
Atlanic Airways
SkyEurope

Worst Airlines IMHO:
BMIbaby
British Airways
SmartWings

The sale is just London to somewhere ... I wanted my mother to visit me but it's double the price. Stupid. It should be the same thing. Go with the low cost airlines.
#35
BA's hub is LHR.

BA feeder flights go to LHR from UK regional airports. That's how large global airlines work. Air FRance's hub is Paris CDG, Lufthansa's is Frankfurt etc etc

Sometimes the feeder flight is free - you pay the same prices from (say) Newcastle to New York as you do from LHR to New York.

Read the story properly. Then edit your post.

In all honesty the best airline i've flown with is KLM.

Absolutely TOP NOTCH. Free drinks throughout the whole flight, personal inflight entertainment systems on all their MD-DC9's and free sandwiches and snacks on short flights. Reserve your seat online, quick pre-flight check-in and excellent loyalty scheme. Flight attendants are always pleasent and helpful and to date never had a single problem, even when i was over my baggage allowance.

KLM is by far the best airline, but it comes at a price. (I usually make up for hte price in alcohol consumption)

Point of this thread is that BA (one of the worlds most professional and quality airlines) - Is offering flights at way under their usual rate.

Personal experiances with airlines are personal, and are in no way a reflection of the overall service of any airline. Yes the recent fiasco at T5 is bad publicity. However this is completely expected when starting fresh. Things never go smoothly when something is brand new. So people basing their criticisms on this need to shutup, others who base their criticisms on personal experiences have to understand that all airlines lose peoples bags, all airlines have unhelpfull staff, and all airlines have policys they cant deviate from. Its that just a small number of people actually encounter them, and you were just unlucky.

There will be someone for every airline that says their service is rubbish, they lose their bags and the staff are unhelpfull.

No, that wasn'r what I was talking about.

The sale is like that: London - Budapest - London

If you want Budapest - London is double the price.

That's normally the case with scheduled airlines I'm afraid, although you aren't comparing like with like. Single tickets are invariably more flexible than the cheapest inflexible return.

Try booking a return such that the OUTWARD leg is the one you want (Budapest to London) and then 'accidentally' miss the return flight. I've done this plenty of times on BA flights. Do not do it the other way round as that WILL invalidate the second return ticket.

Usually works out cheaper with many airlines.

I heard that BAA did not test the baggage system with anything like a realistic volume of bags prior to going live with T5 - something one would have thought was fairly obvious....

Sounds like there might have been faults on both sides.... and no one had an answer for what do we do if the baggage system hits a temporary problem ? contingency - who needs that......

Just be grateful that BAA does not build planes........

personally I think the clue was in T2 and T3 - you can see just how many problems machines can cause .... :)
