Damn! BA prices to US have shot up

They seem to have increased their fares, at least to the US, by 30%

Presumably to pay for the discount offered to premium fare passengers

Yuk.

Or you've hit the advance purchase wall, or a sale ended, or availability in the cheaper booking classes was cut, or availability in the more restrictive booking classes has been bought up, or...you get the idea *wink*

It doesn't make sense to get more price sensitive economy passengers to subsidise the fares for less price sensitive business/first passengers, even with loads as they are in the front cabins.

They've dropped again! maybe someone at BA made a mistake yesterday when tinkering with the system

Or maybe they have a computer which gauges demand and automatically adjusts prices. And temporarily ran amok!

Phew

I got an email from an online TA advertising cheapo fares on CO from the UK to the US. It isn't uncommon for competitor airlines to then price match with immediate effect.
