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, so be quick if you want to get in on the action on Tuesday and throughout the rest of the week.

Two destinations, unknown in advance, will be offered each day.

How Much?

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.
