BA/Virgin Sale

Wanting to book for May 2015, London to Orlando. I remember that there was a flight sale at the end of August two years ago from these companies. Anyone know if they are likely to have a August bank holiday sale this year.

No idea but you haven't got to wait long to find out.

One thing is for sure if one has a sale the other will follow shortly afterwards.

Even if there is a sale it doesn't usually cover all dates and routes. My feeling is that it's too early to expect your dates to be in an August sale.

I think a lot of people forget that not all routes and dates are on sale. If there's no competition or it's a popular travel time there's no reason to discount, plenty of punters willing to stump up non-sale fares.

I think BA had a sale on in June. I was looking at prices to NYC. They shot up during the sale and came down afterwards!

In my experience sale fares generally cover flights in the next 3 months - if there is a sale towards the end of August I would not expect it to include flights for May 2015.

You might need to wait until the sale that normally happens in January but there is of course no guarantee that your route/dates will be included.

Virgin have just started a sale so check the prices. If previous patterns are anything to go by BA will start one in the next few days

Whilst BA.com does not indicate a "sale " , based on New York in Y for November, BA are matching the VS sale fare. So it is worth checking the fare on BA.
