As reported by One Mile at a Time, there are some crazy first class fares running right now between South Africa and Spain on British Airways — with round trip flights from either Johannesburg or Cape Town to Barcelona or Madrid from about $873. As these are paid first class fares, they could earn a ton of miles, but I’d hold off on making nonrefundable plans to make sure this gets honored.
- Cheap first class fares between Johannesburg / Cape Town, South Africa and either Barcelona or Madrid, Spain (other options might be available)
- Check Google Flights for dates (tons of availability at the time of writing through the end of the schedule, excluding Christmas/New Year holidays)
This likely won’t last long, so I won’t go into much detail here. See the One Mile at a Time post for more detail. This will have limited usefulness for those based in North America, but if you’ve got a trip abroad planned, this could be a nice way to get around and also earn a lot of miles. Credited to Alaska Airlines, I believe these fares will earn at least 450% mileage flown (more with elite status). I believe that would come to around 57,000 miles earned on a round trip from JNB to BCN without any status. Of course, you have plenty of other options for crediting to oneworld airlines that may be attractive. I’d suggest acting fast if you want to book this as it likely will not last.
