With British Airways entering its centenary year, the deal hunters among us should be poised for some goodness coming from London.
The 100-year-old airline announced on Monday that it would sell 100 seats for £100 to different destinations each day of the week. Monday's offering disappeared within the hour, and Tuesday's and Wednesday's within 20 minutes, so be quick if you want to get in on the action on Thursday.
Tickets go on sale at midday GMT (7am ET) each day from January 21-24.
Two destinations, unknown in advance, will be offered each day.
Monday: New York and Cape Town (SOLD OUT)
Tuesday: Boston and Abu Dhabi (SOLD OUT)
Wednesday: Rio de Janeiro and Pittsburgh (SOLD OUT)
Thursday: Barbados and Philadelphia

Philadelphia tickets are available from for outbound travel beginning September 1 through September 30, 2019, with a return before October 7, 2019
£100 ($128) each way for coach seats including 23kg checked baggage.

Will I Earn Miles and Can I Upgrade?
The ticket books into M class. Monday's deal to Cape Town would have earned a BA Executive Club Blue member 6,020 Avios (18,060 Avios for a Gold member) and 80 tier points. M class tickets are also upgradable using Avios to World Traveller Plus, should you be able to find redemption availability.
