Hurray! Some great first-class fares today that actually depart from London and are non-stop! These are all on British Airways as part of their Luxury Sale. I focus on First Class, but the sale is also for Business Class. In my opinion, the best offer is London to the Seychelles in March for £2,296 – insanely good value!
All routes must depart from London. You can explore the full list of destinations here, but the best fares are to the USA and a couple of cities in Africa. My two other top picks are New York for £1,798 and San Jose in California for £1,998. Sample itineraries for all three destinations are below.
What: British Airways First Class in the Luxury Sale from London to many destinations, the best fares for around £1,800 to £2,300, depending on the distance.
Offer: These special fares offer great value on a good first-class offering. For comparison, the same flight to the Seychelles outside of this offer is around £3,350!

This one is simple! They are all cash fares originating from London. To find the best dates for you, use BA’s cheapest flight finder. Make sure to play about with the number of days, for example, the Seychelles offer is an 8 day trip.
Maximum Extravagance, Minium Cost
Consider booking a Flight + Hotel package
BA sometimes knocks off a good chunk for booking the flight and hotel together. For example, you can stay at the 5 star Kempinski Seychelles Resort for an extra £1,494. The cheapest hotel only price I can find on the web is £1,883 (on the official hotel website).
Check which aircraft you are on
The quality of the First Class cabin depends on the aircraft. In my opinion, the best cabin is on the Boeing 787-9, with only 8 seats and the newest fit-out. The A380 comes in second as it is roomier. Seats on the 747 and 777 comes in last, with more seats and less room. Although the 777s are in the process of being refitted. The Seychelles flights are in my favourite cabin, the 787!
