But the airline actually offers some brilliant cheap deals on package holidays – and even better, they’re all five-star.
Sun Online Travel spoke to travel expert Gilbert Ott from God Save the Points who revealed that BA is the best place to head if you want a luxury break – for a package holiday price.
He said: “British Airways offer some obscenely cheap deals on five-star holidays – flights included.
“Their European city breaks deals are unbelievable, especially to Amsterdam, Brussels and south Italy.
“It’s worth checking their search engine as you can select five-star hotels only and then the region you want to go to and have a play around to see what comes up.
“You could get a weekend in Dubai at a top hotel for the same price you’d spend on a flight alone.
“I’ve seen deals to Dubai for £300 including flights and hotels and these are seriously high-end places.”
Another benefit is that will get ATOL protection on these packages – protecting you from losing money if flights are cancelled or you become stranded.
We’ve rounded up the best deals on five-star holidays from the British Airways Holiday Finder page.
