I've been looking up short breaks to rome at end of january or middle of february. I generally use easyjet for this kind of trip, but out of curiosity I looked at BA.
I was astonished to find that I could get flights plus five nights at a four star hotel for two people for under £250 each. I was even more surprised when I noticed that the flights were Club Europe.
Admittedly, at the cheaper end, the hotels weren't exaxctly in the centre ....well, they weren't actually in Rome, to be honest. But at around £350 the hotels were city centre.
I found a couple of the the same hotels on EasyJet, where they were cheaper, but not by much. However, the BA price seems to include 23Kg baggage, free seat selection and in-flight food and drink.
Does anyone have any experience of these bookings? Are we liable to be shifted to a BA "partner" which has none of the advantages mentioned above?
The flights are from Gatwick, not Heathrow; I don't know whether that makes a difference.
