I was told there’s a travel agent called Israel Odzi, based in N. London who can obtain First Class tickets with BA for about a third of the normal price. You don’t get miles or status when you fly but this doesn’t bother me so much as I don’t use BA very much.
You can fly from whichever airport you want, ie. no dead legging to Athens, to any destination though there can be seasonal difficulties, eg. CPT, Barbados etc at Christmas.
Has anyone else heard of him or used him, as it seems something is not quite right? I have my suspicions but cannot find him or more info by using Google.
