British Airways has launched some additional long-haul flights for April and May.
This should provide additional Avios availability if you jump in quickly. Miami for Easter may now be possible if you’re keen!
I am guessing that these flights use the aircraft which are no longer flying to China and Hong Kong due to coronavirus. The Miami flight, for example, lands at 04.50 whilst the cancelled Hong Kong flight landed at 04.45.
The new services are:
Cape Town – three extra flights per week from 30th March to 19th April
Seattle – an extra DAILY service from 1st May to 31st May
Miami – an extra DAILY flight from 1st April to 31st May
Note that the extra Cape Town and Miami flights are from Terminal 5 and NOT Terminal 3, which is bound to cause some confusion.
You can look for availability at ba.com.
