AARP members can save $65 to $400 per round-trip British Airways flights starting in the US.

The amount you save depends on the ticket you buy:

  • $65 off Economy
  • $130 off Premium Economy
  • $400 off Business Class and First Class

Business Class flights are expensive, usually ~ $5,000.  But sometimes there are cheaper Business Class flights because of fare wars or sale, like the ~$2,070 Business Class tickets from the West Coast to London or Paris.

So you could use your AARP to save an additional $400 on an already discounted Business Class ticket.  In this example, you’d pay ~$1,670 for a Business Class ticket from San Jose.

  • Fly by March 31, 2016
  • Book through the AARP link
  • Book by October 31, 2015

AARP’s general membership starts at 50 years old for $16 a year.  But according to this thread on Flyertalk, and this article in Fortune magazine, anyone at any age can join as an associate member.

Anyone (Any Age) Can Join AARP

If you’re flying with a partner or friend, only 1 person needs to have an AARP membership.  But, the AARP member has to travel to get the discount.

British Airways has also extended the 10% discount on flights for British Airways cardholders to December 31, 2015.

You can combine the AARP discount and the 10% discount!

However, while the AARP discount is valid on all British Airways flights, including codeshare flights, the 10% discount for British Airways cardholders is only valid for travel on British Airways.

So if you want to combine both discounts, only pick flights on British Airways.
