    Note the phone number on the bottom of this promotion is wrong. When I contacted Avios yesterday they knew nothing about this promotion, but said they would rectify the phone number.
    When you add the cost for all the extras (Taxes, bags etc) the deal isn’t so great

    • Raffles says:

      I expected as much, as with the current Flybe promotion. On the right dates, and if you are only on hand baggage, it may have value.

  • Steve R says:

    Good luck with finding flights. It is painfully slow trying to find availability, even if you can.

    Re the hold luggage, Avios automatically add it on, you then have to phone them up to remove it.

    I sometimes think it is one of those deals that are offered, but good luck if you can find it

    I am actually in the market for Manchester – Malaga flights as it happens, so I had a look.

    Availability is absolute zero, I checked a whole 3 months!
