British Airways Deal: Spain to US West Coast Business Class $1,760 (640 Tier Points)

British Airways and American Airlines are offering this great Business Class fare that will give you instant British Airways Executive Club Silver status(Oneworld Sapphire) with only one round-trip flight.

The fare consists of British Airways and American Airlines multi-city round-trip fares between Spanish cities (i.e. Madrid, Barcelona, Malaga) to San Francisco all in business class cabins. As of now, I am seeing the pricing as low as $1,760.

Here are some of the dates and routes operated:

  • Travel Dates: August 2023 thru December 2023
  • Fare Class: I (Business)
    • Spanish Cities – London(LHR): British Airways/Iberia
    • London(LHR) – New York(JFK): British Airways
    • New York(JFK) – San Francisco(SFO): American Airlines

  • Maximum Stay (San Francisco – Madrid)
    • Travel must commence before: Friday, 23. August 2024 from San Francisco International

Similar fare conditions apply for every other route.

Booking Multi-City Itinerary

As far as I searched, the flight is bookable online on the American Airlines website however in order to book through British Airways, you have to call BA customer service.

All flights are in business class and on London to New York route, you are able to experience British Airways’ brand-new Club Suite while on the US transcontinental flight, you can enjoy American’s A321T.

Earning British Airways Executive Club Tier Points

As I mentioned above, this round-trip journey will be eligible for instant “Silver” status (600 Tier Points requirement). When ticketed with British Airways, in each sector you will be earning (Double the Tier Points for return- trip):

  • Barcelona(BCN)/Madrid(MAD) – London(LHR): 40 Tier Points
  • London(LHR) – New York(JFK): 140 Tier Points
  • New York(JFK) – San Francisco(SFO): 140 Tier Points

There are other US destinations such as Seattle that offer similar pricing however to maximize the Tier Points earning, San Francisco is the best destination from Europe.

With the fare class sold as “I,” you will be able to earn between 100% to 250% miles on either British Airways or Oneworld partner programs.
