British Airways launches affordable long-haul flights (London to US for £175)

Get This Deal

The new fares will be available from London to the following destinations: Austin, Texas (from £246); Boston (from £175); Delhi (from £210); Denver, Colorado (from £191); Dubai (from £143); Hong Kong (from £228); Oakland, California (from £185); Philadelphia (from £234); Punta Cana, Dominican Republic (from £240); Singapore (from £230).

So what’s the catch? You have to pay to check in hold luggage – and it will cost you approximately £80 for a return journey. However, you do get two pieces of hand-luggage, so clever packers who can travel with the bare minimum might be able to avoid the fee.
