Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

London City Airport gains a new route to Deauville

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

London City Airport will see flights to the Normandy seaside town of Deauville this Summer.

This is a very niche route, with a niche operator – L’Odyssey.

You will almost have a private jet experience, with L’Odyssey using a 27-seat Saab 340B aircraft.

Deauville flights London City Airport L'Odyssey

There will be two flights per week, on Fridays and Sundays. Services start on 1st July and represent the only direct flight to Deauville from the UK.

Flights are currently exceptionally expensive – around €800 return – which presumably reflects the 27-seat capacity of the aircraft.

You can book on the L’Odyssey website here.

    Did I see that on AerLingus, you can now pay for your Avios flight in total, including taxes and luggage etc ?

    • mikeWA14 says:

      Yes and you earn Avios and tier points too

    • Rob says:

      Except you’d be far better off using your Avios via Nectar for groceries and paying cash for Lingus (roughly 0.5p per Avios vs 0.8p via Nectar).

    Hi could someone give me some advice please?

    Just booking a flight with Qatar Airways using avios, economy to LHR then business to NYC.

    LHR>Doha>JFK is showing as ZERO avios plus £230.

    If I booked that, what’s the worst that could happen? They cancel the NYC leg or the whole ticket or what?

    Don’t want to be stranded in Qatar.

    • qrfan says:

      You should be checked in for all flights at check-in in London, so I’d say the worst that happens is your ticket gets cancelled and you get stuck in London rather than Qatar. My guess is that it never tickets at all in the first place. I think if you search for cash prices from Europe to US on Qatar it doesn’t return any options.

    Back in 2019 I challenged the Aer Lingus policy of advertising one way fares that are *not* available on a one way basis with the Advertising Standards Authority of Ireland.

    They replied a full 15 months later:

    “The advertising of Air Fares to America is an area of advertising that we have looked at before with the Complaints Committee and in this case we asked the Committee for their opinion on the way the fares were advertised. The Committee considered the advertising in this instance to be clear that the fares were being offered as “from €169 each way” and that they had to be booked as part of a return journey. The Committee did not consider that any breach of the Code had occurred in this instance.”

      Correction – I complained to ASAI in 2017 – they replied in 2019 !

  • Linda says:

    A while ago you featured weekly BA flights from Scotland on a Saturday during the summer period. I cannot find the article. Could you please remind me of the destinations? Thanks

  • blue_wolf says:

    Thank you for the tip on the 15% off! Had a rewards booking with Radisson that I cancelled and rebooked.

    (I did have to call Radisson when the points didn’t return to my account after cancelling, but they credited them immediately)
