The major changes to the Avios scheme went live at midnight last night.
I didn’t do an article today because I want to see how the actual changes compare to what we believed British Airways was planning, given that some of what they announced was vague or open to interpretation.
Please post any comments or observations below. I will put together an article tomorrow.
Here are a couple of quick ones that I saw on a brief trot through the site:
Peak and off-peak dates for BA redemptions are now available up to April 2016. Go here and click ‘Working Out The Cost’
This comment which appears all over the site makes no sense: “You will not be able to benefit from off-peak prices if you fly with two or more oneworld partners, or British Airways plus two or more oneworld partners“. The plan – which, looking at the pricing, has been carried through – is that peak pricing applies if you fly with ONE oneworld partner, as long as it isn’t BA.
More feedback welcome.
