Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

Get 15% off BA CityFlyer flights in Club Europe business class from Manchester

Links on Head for Points may pay us an affiliate commission. A list of partners is here.

Until 25th January, British Airways is offering 15% off all of its weekend BA CityFlyer services from Manchester in Club Europe.

You need to use code BAMAN15 on ba.com.

There is a snag of course.  These flights are all 2 x 2 seating on Embraer 190 aircraft, so you don’t get an empty middle seat in Club Europe.  You do get a decent meal, lounge access and fast track.  The two services you may want to focus on are Malaga and Mykonos which are 160 tier points return and good if you are chasing status.

These are the services, which generally start in late May and run until either the end of September or end of October.

To maximise your miles when paying, your best bet is the British Airways American Express Premium Plus card which earns double Avios (3 per £1) when you book at ba.com or via BA Holidays.  You do not get double Avios if you book with the free British Airways American Express card.  Another option is American Express Preferred Rewards Gold which offers double points – 2 per £1 – when you book flight tickets directly with an airline.
