Reply To: Cheap BA Tickets Long Haul in First

Back to Forum


Martyn, I came across this from some English friends in Cape Town, who live in London but spend three months there at Christmas. He has used this guy in the past and admitted he didn’t know how it was done but never had a problem, just a few inconveniences such as his return date being delayed by a day or two. On another occasion his wife’s ticket was downgraded from F to business at the gate with no explanation, but he didn’t want to make a fuss “just in case”!

As he said, it’s probably not a 100% kosher but to save £ 7,000 on two tickets was very tempting.

I am just curious if anyone else here has had dealings or if they how it was done. My first thought was staff tickets but I think now its miles.
