  • Dubious says:

    And for those people who used to have the Miles&More Credit Card will find their ‘protection’ expires on teh 30th June 2022…so will start seeing points expire three 3-months later.

    • Rob says:

      There are rumours of movement at Cornercard so if they still think they can get something out of the door, I would expect additional protection.

  • Neil says:

    Do you know when British Airways will release Garwick flights for Easter 2023 to destinations such Malta and Lanzarote?

    • Rob says:

      Easter 2023 falls into the Summer timetable so it will be a while. BA hasn’t even released the ski routes for the Winter timetable yet.

  • Steve in Croydon says:

    You forgot – 10th July the buy Avios with a 50% bonus offer ends.
    Avios are becoming more like 1920’s German Weimar Republic Reichsmarks every day!!!

    • Rob says:

      • Steve in Croydon says:

        @Rob So you’re going to do an article on currency devaluation and hyper-inflation?! 🙂
        Q: What happens when you leave the world’s largest/richest trading bloc and generate £700 Bn of virtual money?
        Q: What’s more stable – the “value” of BitCoin or Avios?
