-----------------------------------------

It looks misleading when you select the flights as it comes up with prices for one person (per leg) however these are the discounted prices per person.

i.e. if you booked a single flight to Miami in August for a week it would normally cost £2000 however it shows prices on the deal as £490 each way, therefore you'd expect then to get the second person free but the offer is already built into the pricing. So you'd pay £2000 for 2. So still 2 for 1 but not shown that way!

Where is the cheapest flight?



Cheapest I've seen would be Tel Aviv (it's about the shortest "long Haul" destination) and comes in at £253 each way per person.

New York are good prices at £413 each way p/p.
Orlando £412 each way p/p

I think it's a good deal. Many won't vote hot as the prices will put them off.

The question is still; hot based on getting a better price elsewhere?

It's a hot deal for long haul club seats (if you need/want 2)

Great deal, heat and rep added. I guess it's not been voted especially hot cos it only caters to a minority audience!

Hmm - page seems to not let you book children or infants or mix and match ie traveller out club back - I wonder if either of these options are available - they quote a premium rate number to call

Nope I'm sure it's just a straight forward 2 adult seats in Club. They certainly wouldn't want to encourage children :-) As to mixing club with Premium Economy (PE), the best way of doing that is to buy a PE flight and use your points to upgrade either the inbound or outbound leg (or both).

In my experience you can often get enough points for the flight to almost pay for the upgrade element.

It's a fantastic offer for anyone wanting to fly to Australia in October. However, it's only from London airports so anyone wanting to fly from Manchester would have to book the shuttle down to heathrow seperately. A real bargain though. Works out at about £3500 and it's normally £7500

This is very hot!

This deal has been put in the wrong retailer catogory. BAA.com is British Airports Authority (the ppl who operate some airports in the UK) and BA.com is British Airways (the airline).

Realistically its not a bargain - and the majority of people who fly with these tickets have them bought for them rather than buy them themselves.

Look at the example above - is £3500 a good price to Australia for the sake of better conditions from airport to airport? Its well under £1000 on economy (without checking - but am sure I have seen high £600s).

So its COLD.

Its also worth remembering this is the same sleazy BA who colluded with Virgin to price fix, and were later grassed up by their co-conspirators to reduce Virgins share of the fine.

Is an airline like that trustworthy?

So COLD does not go far enough - its BALTIC.

Do you need to fly on Business class to feel important? otherwise at this price i still wouldnt pay the extra , ive been on Business class before but only as a free upgrade and even though more leg room and better treatment and food , i dont think its that special where i would pay thousands of pounds for , when i could pay well under half for a normal standard class ticket.

20+ hours in the air, you'd defiantly feel the difference. If i had the cash I'd upgrade if i could. Hot!

Defiantly feel the difference??? wtf

26 hours to Australia in economy is a nightmare. Have you ever flown for 26 hours in economy? Just because it's not £2.99 doesn't mean it's not hot. Not everyone on here shops at B & M Bargains you know.

Then I assume you will be going around voting cold on almost every deal on this site because you wouldn't need the items.

This deal is HOT because it is not trying to compete with economy flights.
Economy and Business class are two different animals entirely.
When you compare this deal to other business class prices then you quickly realise it is a ****ing bargain.

August LHR to Miami for £1968 for 2 Club World seats. Economy on the same flights was £1400. For me it was worth the extra £250 each

Departure Lounge
Free Elemis Spa Treatment at airport
Flat bed / pillows / duvet etc
better food / drinks
Extra luggage allowance for shopping
and all the other stuff...

..makes it hot for me! Worth the £250 extra return per person

Virtually everyone posting here in favour of the deal has one orange disk for rep.

But I guess their reputation is pretty dire if they need to fork out a couple of thousand to try to boost their egos.

I need economy deals not business class deals lolz can't afford it! (I'm not going to vote since I'm not a Business Class user anyways)
BA is lame...rude air cabin crew + I remember getting upgraded to Premium Economy and it was just as uncomfortable as Ecnomoy travelling to Hong Kong...the leather seats + extra leg room didn't ease the journey at all

Look smart and you get upgraded quite often.

Its happened many times - but always when I was wearing a suit as I was flying somewhere for a meeting.

Flying back from Hawaii one time, in my best denim jacket and jeans complete with 2 weeks growth i was told "we are overbooked on your flight to LA, and although we see you fly with us often we have a policy not to upgrade passengers wearing demin" - so flew via SF instead.

So in reality - Club/Business class is full of people who were upgraded, had their tickets paid, or need something to address their inferiority complexes. The same sad type who wear designer clothes as they imagine them to be superior. Spending money to compensate for lack of confidence really.

Anyone disagree?

For a person who flies business all the time its a bargain. Voted hot.!!

ever heard about the fox and the sour grapes????. Though I would never waste money on first class nowadays. Flew to dubai a few weeks ago on business class and got an auto upgrade to first,.

It sounds like you are the one with the issues not those flying club.

I own my own company (so I pay for my own seats) but I only upgrade to club if the benefits are worth the dosh. It's no different to buying Tesco Cava or posh champagne. Most of the time I'll buy the cheap stuff but give me a cracking price on the expensive stuff and I'll willingly upgrade. Nothing to do with class pretensions, I want value.

Fly in cattle to Aus then try it with a lay flat bed. If the price is right I know which I'd choose.

dont need any extra confidence mate .I have enough confidence anyway.!!!! I do think that its not fair slagging off bargains saying that they are not worth it etc. A bargain is a bargain and HUKD is meant for that. If I can get something cheaper than what I normally pay for thats a bargain for me.

If its your company - which there was no need to mention unless the said company was paying for the seats - then you are getting the tax back on it. So its likely the majority if your ticket comes off your tax.

This entirely backs up what I was saying - re most people have the tickets bought for them (or in your case most of the ticket).

Are you sure you travelled with BA, Premium Economy sounds like a Virgin product and BA certainly don't have leather seats on Longhaul aircraft.

You talk complete ********.

We have relatives in New Zealand. Last year we flew business clsss with Emirates and the flights cost us over £5k. This is a good deal.

I bet you've never even been on a plane!

the problem with flying business class all the time is that you get used to the legroom and the wider seats. Economy then becomes a torture. I do agree that business class seats are overpriced, However I have paid for them myself ( twice in the last 4 months). I dont care too much about the food/wine etc. However I do like a good nap(which is impossible in economy as I am too tall ) before I reach my destination so that I dont lose 1 or 2 days fighting the jet lag,

In that way it is cost effective for me.

I stopped most flying in the mid nineties when the five or six gallons an hour G-ATOJ was using seemed environmentally unfriendly. :whistling: :whistling: :whistling:

Well i guess im the one of the people u class have inferiority complex because i wear designer clothes , but to me i wear them because the quailty is better , i like them and i can afford them.

Are you telling me if you had the money you would still shop in Asda for your clothes? lol

Oh and yes i do perfer to get treated better and upgraded for free instead of some mug who pays thousands to upgrade, but they dont judge on just clothes it how you speak also

But does this make it right , no...... but then everyone judges people in one form or another its human nature , i wear nice clothes for myself , nobody else , just like women wear makeup .

Im not better then anyone else on here same goes for everyone , we are all human after all .

I agree this is a good deal if you do usually pay for buiness class tickets , i just dont find paying the extra worth it , when if you maybe flirt or look good you can get a free upgrade anyway

Btw : ive often gone without food so i can buy an expensive item that ive wanted , im not rich and dont claim to be as if i was then yes i would fly first class all the time lol

Yes it is a good reduction on the original price so it should be hot but you may consider that as its just transport and no faster than a cheap flight the it seems cold for me. Yes Australia is a silly long flight on cattle class so thats why I broke it up and had a few days on Hong Kong.

So not hot for me.

Are you planning on correcting anything else now?

Terrible justification - he's paying for the ticket, yet still you try and weasel your way out of your silly points.

Just leave it be, the price is great and not everyone is a skinflint.

"Otherwise by" what?

Correct it so the English makes sense and then I will reply.

Also - did you notice that the person who posted the part you quoted is now claiming it to be a typo?
