Dates available for purchase through June 2022. I priced out several routes in Business Class and they all came in under $2000. If you are going to need airfare, you may want to check this out for yourself.
Which routes did out check- east or west coast? Thanks so much for the heads up!
I found low BS from San Diego to Frankfurt thru June, but other cities thru Feb. Do you know if you can also get the AARP discount added on?
Thx again .
I checked out west coast (SEA) routes. I’m unsure about the other discount, you may have to check with BA.
This is what we need, but I don't know if our routes will be available yet. We'll be returning somewhere around June 14 or 15, 2022. I'll check it out next week, though. And there's an AARP discount, as well. Does that factor in?

Just copied above from British Airways site- couldn't copy all of it, and couldn't figure out the link, which would have been easier.
Look beyond the dates listed above. There are some good prices out there on other dates, especially to Frankfurt.
Before snapping up a nice fare for this fall, check carefully what Covid-related requirements a transfer through LHR may trigger in your destination country. I chose Lufthansa over BA to fly to Germany this fall because Germany was requiring testing or quarantine (I forget which) of arrivals from the UK, while letting in vaccinated arrivals from US. I haven't tried to keep up with the details, but I think LHR is a problematic hub now and may continue to be for months to come.
There has been extensive discussion of the situation with transiting through Heathrow in the Switzerland forum. The discussion focused on filling out the required Swiss entry form, and the question of which is one's "departure country" if you have a two-leg journey, one US to Heathrow and the second Heathrow to Switzerland. The answer is that if you stay airside for the transfer between flights, you have not entered the U.K. and your departure country for the pirposes of the form is the US. In other words, you are considered to have traveled from the US to Switzerland, not as having been in the UK.
It appears that Germany follows the same reasoning. Scroll down to the second section, regarding flights from countries affected by a travel ban due to widespread circulation of variants.
You will see there is an exception for travelers who catch a connecting flight at the airport in such a country (such as the UK) without leaving the airport transit zone (meaning they stay airside). As long as passengers observe that rule, there is no problem with BA flights through Heathrow to Germany. You still need proof of vaccination, or a negative covid test, or proof of recovery, however.
And note that other countries, even within the EU, may have different rules. Italy currently requires a 5-day quarantine for passengers arriving on a flight from the UK, even if the journey originated n the US and the passenger transited airside.

At the moment, but things can (and probably will) change. For the better or for the worse, who knows.
Yes, things can, and will change. But if they do change for the worse, the effect will be much wider than simply transiting through Heathrow. All travel plans, for the next 6 months to a year, should be considered tentative and subject to revision (or cancellation) this point.
Well, it won't let me book a return flight later than June 6. The prices aren't cheaper for my practice itinerary, Tulsa - Paris, Rome - Tulsa, business class, but there is an AARP discount of 200 per person.
Our RS tour ends June 4, and we want to spend at least another 10 days in Italy, so I'll just wait and try again later. Or try another airline.
Bear in mind that most of the business seats in BA flights are of a 2-3-2 configuration, with some seats facing backwards. There are some ex-US routes flown by aircrafts with new seats, but there is no guarantee that there won't be an aircraft change in the future.
Anyone having luck with finding these good fares past Feb, 2022? I have found San Diego to Frankfurt into June, but can't find anywhere else.
Thanks so much!
The Frankfurt routes is what I am finding past February as well.
Germany in April-May is starting to look good....
Munich is also showing sale prices into June.
We have the British Airways visa, so there should be 10% off this price.
How did you find out about this sale? I never received any BA alerts. Thanks so much for sharing- we are going!
Safe and healthy travels to you!
