It is several years since I’ve flown BA and I would welcome advice from regular BA flyers on the following.
I am planning to book BA flights from Manchester to Las Vegas via LHR for May 2014 and the current BA Club price in the sale is just over £2,100 per person but as the flights are part of my 60th birthday vacation I ideally would have wanted to book First but I cannot justify the cost of just over £4,100 per person.
I am considering upgrading to First on the outbound flight only as I think this would be a better overall experience and can do so when booking the flights at a cost of £1,000 per person.
Would I be better simply booking BA Club and hoping for a cheaper upgrade to First via MMB nearer my travel dates which are on a Tuesday in May 2014 on BA 275 from LHR to Las Vegas.
The prices quoted are in the current BA sale and any booking must be made by 28 January although the fares could disappear before then.
I appreciate that any upgrade offers via MMB will depend on the load on the particular flight and waiting is a gamble - I understand that nobody can give a definitive answer and the best advice is to book the travel class you want to fly but any views would be welcomed.
