    I’m confused. Hasn’t BA pulled the 747 entirely now? Or am I confusing it with Qantas?

    Qantas have stopped flying ALL international flights .. a really great help to Australians stuck overseas.

    BA’s pulled all 747s fr traffic.
    Never used 747 on MRU, MLE or Seychelles routes either..

    My understanding is that these are flights on other models – but to the destinations that the 747 used to service. So you’ll be on a 350 or a 777, but there are 747 flights available on the promotion. Apologies if I have it wrong.

    Mystery solved

    SOLD OUT: BA selling 747 Club World return flights for £999 return

    ..and all sold out.. apparently…

    Apologies, for the confusion. There were 747 seats for sale to past routes operated by the 747 and not all destinations served by the aircraft were included in the offer.

    And by the way of course BA used 747 to both Mauritius and the Seychelles.

    …I read it as 747 (as in quantity) Club-World seats available at £999 each…as did Duncan…

    Correct. At one time BA flew the 747 via Nairobi to Seychelles. Later they flew the 747 via Dubai to Seychelles and onward to Mauritius.

    I didn’t manage to get a fare of £747 in Club, but I did manage to use 85,000 Avios and £ 590 for a
    LGW – BGI – LHR in First for December travel.

    I thought that was quite a good deal.

    They had 1000s of seats available, so plenty of people got flights. Whether they get away or not it remains to be seen. Nice tribute to the 747 the queen of the skies tho…

    Polly – I think the operative word is your “had” [1000s of seats]. When earlier this week I booked for NYC for next July, there were very few seats available in WT+ or Club, despite the usual number of flights there showing. With BA’s current policy of permitting cancellations of all booked flights, with return of Avios and 241 vouchers, presumably people are booking on spec, knowing that they can move flights nearer the time, if they want. It’s as if all bookings are “full fare”.

    What may be happening is that a major reservoir of Avios/241 bookings is building up, for when things get back to whatever the “new normal” becomes. BA presumably will drop back their Avios seat availability at that time.
