In Lesson 15 of our Avios Redemption University series we discussed Avios redemptions on Flybe.
What’s interesting is that a standard cash ticket bought on Flybe does not include checked luggage whereas an Avios redemption via avios.com does.
Flybe tickets booked via ba.com should also come with a free suitcase although you are told otherwise during the booking process – for safety book on avios.com.
According to the avios.com website this can be a suitcase up to 20kg. It turns out that this was changed to 23kg in May 2017 and, last week, the avios.com website was finally updated to reflect this.
