Right now you can book British Airways first class from Johannesburg or Capetown, South Africa to Barcelona or Madrid, Spain for $880 roundtrip. That’s incredible. In fact it’s a base fare of just $111.20 in each direction plus taxes and fees. For international first class.
Key details of fare basis ADL0NNM7:
- No penalty for changes, however changing these tickets will cause them to reprice to the then-current fare (which will be much higher)
- Travel departing Africa permitted January 16 – May 31, July 3 – July 31
- Travel departing Europe permitted January 14 – July 31
British Airways First Class
South Africa has been struggling, so I choose to see this as a deep discount short-term airfare sale. However British Airways could easily get a case of seller’s remorse and decide they do not wish to honor the tickets. So I would not make any non-refundable travel plans in conjunction with these tickets right away. We’ll have to see how they handle the deal.
