March 4, 2017 Program Update
Until recently, being a member of AARP got you a $400 reduction on BA First and Business Class fares. Now it’s been reduced to $200.
Okay, but it’s still worth going for and you don’t even have to be 50—anyone of any age can join AARP. Annual dues: $16. In the same way, I am an “Associate Member” of the American Bar Association (although not a lawyer), but I can still take advantage of certain travel discounts available to ABA members.
The discount also applies to EasyUp fares—New York–Budapest, for example, drops to $2,513 from $2,713 with the AARP discount—and for BA code-share flights, including American and Iberia, to Europe.
