As always, the best availability is likely to exist now, before the marketing starts.

Edited: to update Sale landing page. The further 10% discount code offer has now also expired.24th August 2011 at 08:27 #555100
So can we book now or we have to wait until tomorrow ?
Are the fares which are discounted by the code ‘brighton’ also available with a shareholder discount ?24th August 2011 at 09:15 #555101
You can book now, Bullfrog. I think, but I’m not sure, that you can combine the shareholder and ‘brighton’ discounts.
Just try a booking and see what happens.24th August 2011 at 09:16 #555102
@ ContinentalClub: Thanks for the 10% discount code, just booked 2x CW flights. Helped especially as one of them was an open jaw!!24th August 2011 at 09:22 #555103
Bullfrog yes you can use the brighton code with shareholders discount. I have already done it.24th August 2011 at 10:40 #555104
I got a great deal this morning flying to SYD in F for the family and used the 10% discount – so very pleased (and will also get New First!)24th August 2011 at 18:41 #555105
There remains a little over 4 hours to take advantage of the ‘brighton’ 10% off promotion code on top of the newly-loaded sale fares.25th August 2011 at 07:54 #555099
The ‘brighton’ code has now expired and public advertising of the sale has begun:
There’s also an opportunity to win a holiday to St Lucia.25th August 2011 at 08:40 #555106
The only problem with this sale and with the brighton code before is the restriction attached to it.
I’m not trying to look a gift horse in the mouth, but if you’re trying to go anywhere that’s a little off network – Peru for example – you’re scuppered because the discounts only apply to BA metals or relevant codeshares (JSA, TATL Agreement). So to get to Peru, the discount is only valid as far as Madrid (or Miami, which is the less preferred route). Great offer, just a shame that it doesn’t extend further into the OneWorld alliance (I am trying to spend my money with them after all).25th August 2011 at 09:53 #555107
When will BA launch an “autumn” sales for passengers ticketed from the US and members of US BA Exec Club?25th August 2011 at 10:06 #555108
Will there be another sale later this year? I can vaguely remember there being one towards end October/beginning November, or am I imagining things?25th August 2011 at 10:20 #555109
BA Sale…whos kidding who?
Just looked at LHR-CPT, LGW-AGP, LHR-JNB and all the premium fares are the same as pre-sale last week…except that LHR-CPT First is MORE expensive!!!!26th August 2011 at 11:48 #555110
I booked 2 tickets on WT+ upgrading with miles to CW from LGW-MCO-LGW in the BA June sale for travel in May/June 2012 as they were supposedly good value. The current August sale for the same itinerary is 20% cheaper. My wife and I are Silver members so I contacted the Exec. Club and tried to cancel and re-book but was told the original booking is not refundable. I enquired if they would offer a credit rather than a refund to book other BA flights to other destinations in the future up to the value of the credit. No was the response. The lesson for me is ‘Do not book 11 months in advance’ and give serious consideration if trying to stay loyal to BA is worth it as they do not appear to reciprocate by their rigid inflexibility. Is there a procedure to appeal higher up the chain?26th August 2011 at 12:09 #555111
DFS have a sale on almost every day of the year, if you buy a sofa in the January sale for £1,000 and then find in in the August summer sale at £700 and nothing to pay until 2020 do you go back to the shop and ask for your money back? Simple answer no and if you did the answer would be the same as BA.
A friend of mine had exactly the same problem as you AuldReekie39 but with Virgin to the same destination. However, if you are fixed on your holiday dates, not booking 11 months ahead may mean you don’t get the flights you want or the price is much higher.
