The experienced Avios collector will already have today marked in their diary. For the rest of you, you should know that today is 355 days until Good Friday 2016 (Friday 25th March).
Why is this important? Because, at midnight last night, British Airways made Avios redemption seats for Good Friday 2016 available.
If you want to lock in an Easter break for next year – and pay the current, cheaper Avios rates – you should book ASAP.
Don’t make any rash decisions. It will cost you £35 per person if you later choose to cancel your flights so booking something completely at random could prove expensive!
You can only book your outbound Good Friday flight today. You would need to book your return flight later when it becomes available. This incurs added risk, of course, since if you cannot book the return flight for some reason (perhaps someone beats you to the seats) you may have to cancel the outbound and pay the cancellation fee.
If you want to use a British Airways Premium Plus American Express 2-4-1 voucher, that is not a problem. You can book a one-way outbound and then ring BA to add the inbound when it becomes available. You will be charged the £35 per person change fee (and possibly a telephone booking fee) but the alternative is to risk losing the outbound seats.
