Now here is a slightly odd one.
British Airways (note, BA and not AA) is offering 10,000 or 20,000 bonus Avios when you book yourself on the American Airlines new service between Dublin and New York JFK.
You get the 20,000 Avios points for a return flight in Business Class or with a flexible Economy ticket. A cheap, non-refundable Economy ticket earns 10,000 bonus Avios for a return flight.
A one-way flight earns half of the bonus, but only if you fly Dublin to New York. You get nothing for a one-way starting in New York.
UK and Ireland BAEC members are eligible to take part. Note that your booking must start in Dublin so you cannot book London to Dublin to New York on the same ticket – any connecting flight to Dublin must be on a separate ticket.
Flights must be taken by September 15th.
