Iberia is currently selling return Business Class flights on BA from London Gatwick to Barcelona for just €182 (£160) return.
You will be on a British Airways flight but with an Iberia flight number.
You can book at this price for travel up to 19th March. You do NOT need to stay a Saturday night.
It earns 80 tier points return so, at £2 per point, is good value for anyone looking to ensure they requalify or hit a new status level. And, of course, there are far worse places to go than Barcelona on a tier point run.
Other Spanish cities are also bookable, but will generally cost between €200 and €250 return in Business Class.
You need to book on iberia.com to get this price and you need to select the Gatwick service. You cannot book on ba.com even though you will be flying on BA. Don’t log in to book because you need to add your Executive Club number during the process.
Your best option to maximise your miles when paying is American Express Preferred Rewards Gold. This offers double points – 2 per £1 – when you when you book flight tickets directly with an airline. Our review of Amex Gold is here.
