    Instead of reading the whole article (which I did not do), or go to the BA page (which I did not do) before trying to book a weekend away for next weekend, these are the dates of travel that the promotion code can be applied to:

    Porto, Menorca travel: 29 Apr – 30 Jun 16.
    Crete, Kalamata, Palermo, Biarritz travel: 30 Apr – 30 Jun 16.
    Inverness travel: 01 May – 30 Jun 16.
    Billund, San Jose travel: 03 May – 30 Jun 16.

    Will using the discount code still earn avios and tier points?

    I need 20 cheap tier points to hit gold and a few days in porto would suit me nicely…

    The promotion seems to also cover new Gatwick – NY route

  • Dave B says:

    I cannot get the Curve website to work. Any update?

  • Tom C says:

    It was all looking so good, but then BA had to go and spoil it all by saying something stupid like “economy only”

  • Pieter says:

    Nice! Was looking for some tickets for the Dordogne and was just able to book LCY – Angers and Bordeaux – LGW. Apparently, the discount works nicely if only one leg is a new route 🙂

  • AndyS says:

    Don’t BA already go to Inverness?

  • Mr Pax says:

    BA already flew to Angers too, just seasonally.
