Until midnight tonight (Wednesday) you will save £63 per person on any long haul or medium haul return flight.
The discount covers all classes, from World Traveller to First. Because medium haul is included, the discount will work on short routes such as Tel Aviv or Moscow which attract long haul tier points. Moscow, for example, is now around £180 return on some dates in economy.
