It is when booking with BA assume it's the same with another agent. TBH I would ring BA and get them to price match. Booking direct is easier if changes occur.

Checked baggage per passenger
Adults, young adults and children:
3 bags at 32kg (70lbs)

Maximum bag size: 90cm x 75cm x 43cm (35.5in x 29.5in x 16in)

I could never afford or justify the cost BUT it is a great price.
excellent price you will need the extra luggage for all of the winter coats
It's a very good 1st class fare.
I wish that more premium class fare deals were posted here.
Voted cold only for the emoticon-peppered text.

Ha I take it you've never tried to actually change anything with B.A? Even for the executive club the call centres are all based in India and they have an infuriating inability to actually do anything outside of their script for you without having your call escalated 3 or 4 levels back to the U.K.

Terrible service and a very average airline living of its past im afraid, and thats from a Gold card holder. That being said its a good price for 1st as you'd usually have to travel from inverness / the EU for these prices normally

I totally agree, I avoid them now.
Good deal, although I only ever take these flights when an employer / client is paying, personally... I find that for the sake of a few hours travel, I'd always rather upgrade my hotel, when it's my own money.
Just checked one of the dates from Edinburgh to Chicago on 10th - 17th Mar and can get a return with Delta (not sure if good or not) for £1517 for 1st Class. It's not direct and changes at JFK but £1500 for a 1st class return isn't too shabby!

Well to my understanding part of the GGL is that you have a dedicated phone service which us plebs back in Gold dont have access to. I believe they also waive change fees? again if you're getting all of that then im sure you'll be happy but regular business & 1st travellers have to pay for everything and still put up with sub par service.

If you find a good agent its a life saver, rather than holding for B.A res in india when theres strikes or cancellations happen you can call someone directly and get them to do everything for you. 3rd party websites I agree with not using but most agents worth their salt will be able to get much the same deals online with a much better service.
Always london

Always london


Quite the contrary my friend. B.A business and First flights are always cheaper from the northern airports, Inverness for example is usually at least half the price of London departures usually which is why this is such a "deal"
A First class return will also get you 420 BA tier points. You only need 600 to get you Silver Executive Club status with free lounge access, business class check in and priority boarding even when flying economy. A premium economy return to Dubai will get you the other 180 points. Your Silver status lasts from when you get to 600 to the end of your following Executive Club membership year
