    Don’t all rush at once, but might be interesting to have a day in Paris prior to a trip to New York (now serving EWR, rather than JFK) or DC (Dulles) instead of the usual LHR options.

    From €1080 rtn in a 757 BizSeat.

    Another sale on, until August 24th.

    $700 one way in a BizSeat from Newark or Washington DC to London Heathrow.

    Has BT done a review of this service, yet?

    Interesting. Does it earn full points and milage in EC?
    Looks like it could be a nice way to get the last points required for a renewal.

    Btw, is it right that you have to inquire with EC to figure out how many points you make on a leg, or is there a list anywhere on the EC web?

    Good question, I have just looked on the site, it gives the miles, but no mention anywhere of Tier Points.

    ba.com has a Tier Point and Mileage calculator, which does indeed reveal that Open Skies flights earn both Tier Points and BA Miles:

    http://www.britishairways.com/travel/calculatemilesandpoints/execclub/_gf/en_us

    You can use this to establish the number of TPs and BA Miles your flight will earn on Open Skies as well as most oneworld airlines, using the dropdown box. As an aside, you can usually also get this information when you purchase a ticket and also via Manage My Booking.

    Open Skies’ BizSeat is treated as Premium Economy (75 TPs per transatlantic sector) and BizBed is treated as Business Class/Club World (120 TPs one way).

    You earn Gold/Silver bonuses in the same way as on regular BA mainline.

    Thank you for the information VintageKrug. I have been looking for a long time for that calculator, nice to have at years end when you realize you may not make the status and need a trip to keep it afloat.

    And of course if you’re in search of Tier Points it’s also worth remembering the the British Airways London City-New York service still offers First Tier Points even though you are flying Club World (so 180 TPs per sector rather than 120).
