An extra 4th article today to let you know that I have it on good authority from a source in Sussex that British Airways will be launching a ‘50% off’ Avios redemption sale on Monday.
This will only apply to World Traveller flights (long-haul economy).
Most – but not all – routes will be included. New York, Dubai etc are all in there.
It will only apply to tickets which start in the UK.
Full taxes and charges will still be payable.
The booking period will run from Monday until 13th July.
You must travel between 1st October and 28th February, excluding the Christmas period of 18th December to 10th January.
Full details on Monday when I have them. However, do not make any World Traveller bookings over the weekend!
