BA bought the collapsed Monarch slots at Gatwick and have basically used them to add loads more flights this summer. Why a deal? Because:
1. the just-released flights are at bargain prices right now as nobody has yet bought any tickets
2. there are minimum 4 economy and 2 business 'reward' seats available on each flight, ie the ones you can get with points.
3. Great availability in school hols at cheapo prices right now if you act fast.

Look up the routes on BA's fare calculator. I'll try to get a full list but here's for starters:

Weekly flights to Malaga will be boosted from 27 to 35, Alicante from 14 to 22 and Faro from 17 to 21.
BA's summer flights to Tenerife will increase from six per week to 13, while Madeira will go from six to nine and Lanzarote from three to five.

That's OK, I'll explain.

The routes are not new so people have been buying the flights on existing slots for the last 5 months - flights are released 355 days ahead.

Many popular dates will have gone already, eg school hols, or will now be very expensive.

For points collectors (Avios), there will be none left.

THIS NEW RELEASE CHANGES ALL THAT - you can now find cheap flights on the new slots because they were only released a few hours ago.

And you can use your Avios/ airmiles/ points to redeem 'free' reward flight once again.
May you please give a sample date to verify
I got my flight for August via BA just before Christmas- saved 500 quid and only £70 more than flying Aeroflot via Moscow. BA are alright (although i used to find the male stewards too diva like) and (unless they have changed policy) they don't replace warn parts with refurbished parts but always with new parts.

Try Gatwick - Gibraltar May 28 or the week after


THE UK will be even easier to get to with a new route between Gatwick and Gibraltar starting May 28.

Just in time for the summer season, the British Airways route will operate daily, except Tuesdays.

Running until September 29, the route will see more than 2,000 additional seats offered weekly.

This comes after an announcement of 11 additional weekly flights from Heathrow during the summer.
Probably voted cold by the Ryan Air/ Easy Jet brigade. Never had an issue with BA, Emirates, Virgin etc. so heat from me
Cheapsters at the back of the boarding queue please....

you need to be more flexible in your choice of dates

sounds like you are mixing a cheap new flight (new slot) with an expensive old one (old slot)

which sort of demonstrates my point, ie choose the new slots
Price changed for me and saved over £200 as was waiting for this. Checked it yesterday and nothing, so glad uvsadealdealdeal posted it. Much appreciated

You're welcome - glad somebody gets it
Thanks, I've managed to book dates close to my original Monarch booking.
