[Expired] Wow: $874 First Class British Airways South Africa to Spain

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.
