News in brief:
500,000 British Airways seats for under £40
As part of its current sale, British Airways is offering some special fares on short-haul routes this weekend.
Until Monday 13th, 500,000 seats to Europe have been reduced to £40 or less one-way.
The cheapest routes, with return trips possible for under £60, are Dublin, Bilbao and Gibraltar.
I recommend looking at the BA Low Fare Finder page. This will let you see exactly which months have the lowest fares.
Full details of this offer and the broader BA sale are here. The main sale runs until 21st September although this 500,000 seats offer ends on the 13th.
Get 1,000 American Airlines miles with every Hyatt stay – stacks with points
American Airlines has a ‘strategic partnership’ with the Hyatt hotel group. As part of this, it has launched a new offer.
It isn’t hugely generous BUT it is incremental. You will receive your usual World of Hyatt points anyway, so this is an extra cherry on top.
You will receive 1,000 American Airlines miles with every stay at 130 participating Hyatt hotels in Europe, Africa, Middle East and India before 19th December.
Whilst there is no list of participating hotels, I am guessing that 130 hotels would cover the entire portfolio in the areas listed above. Note that Small Luxury Hotels stays do not count.
You receive your 1,000 AA miles on top of either standard World of Hyatt points or, if you are earning American Airlines miles, your 500 base miles.
You will NOT receive the bonus if your Hyatt account is set to earn airline miles – instead of World of Hyatt points – in a scheme apart from American AAdvantage.
You can find out more, and register, on the Hyatt website here.
