New Marriott Bonvoy O2 concert tickets released for points redemption

Marriott Bonvoy has released a new batch of tickets for its box at the O2 Arena in London.

There have been some recent changes to the Bonvoy Suite and I’m not fully sure how it is working at the moment. The suite has changed location in the arena, and the offering on the night has also reportedly changed, although it still advertises ‘food and beverages’.

I’m waiting for something I like the sound of to turn up so I can take another look for myself.

    First time I’ve had this – BA.com not letting me checkin, need to verify APIS – but to do that need to re-enter passport number for security and it won’t accept the passport number.

    (Wife’s) Passport number is correct and flown on it several times with BA, have updated it in her baec profile but still no joy. Daren’t try again as it warmed me about locking the booking if I get it ‘wrong’ again.

    Anyone any ideas or seen this before? All the others in the family are fine

  • Simone says:

    Is there a way to get a notification when the bomvoy moments are released? Or are they released a specific day of the month?

    • Rob says:

      SeatSpy will send you alerts if you pay for their First Class membership tier. We normally have them up within 24 hours of them appearing though.

  • Andrew. says:

    How is the 4,200 Aer LIngus Avios figure calculated? At a rate of 3 Avios per Euro for the fare less taxes (EUR 1550ish – EUR 300ish), Isn’t it closer to 3,750 Avios

    Also, now that United miles never expire, and individuals may already have a generous Avios balance. If people were considering using this route on an occasional basis, would it be useful routing them to United at the 100% rate on a P fare instead to build up a balance to use on US domestics?

    • Rob says:

      I was guessing that GOVERNMENT taxes, which in theory is all is deducted, waere less than you think. I could be wrong of course.

      Worth noting that if you have Marriott Plat/Titanium status, as I do, you can transfer the United miles into Bonvoy at 1:1.

  • Charlie says:

    Thank you Rob! Grabbed some Andrea Bocelli tickets and that’s a bucket list item right there.

  • Kevin says:

    I must remember that about Aer Lingus. We have a cash Business Class booking to JFK coming up. I don’t really want to collect Aer Club points but I am planning some Veiling flights over the next 6 months so I’ll do some research in this regard.

  • ADS says:

    “the Aer Lingus website does not make it clear which fare sub-class you are buying”

    Absolutely agree – I’ve never managed to spot the booking fare on the website. The only place I’ve found the code is in the original booking confirmation email. Even departure reminder emails don’t have it.

    I have ground floor standing tickets for Arcade Fire so wave down if you’re in the box.

  • Nick says:

    The Bonvoy redemption points pricing for some of the O2 events is a bit of a mystery to me. I would have thought that Andrea Bocelli would have been at least 50K, compared with other current & past performers. Unsurprisingly, IMHO, it’s now sold out. Anyway, if any other HfP readers are going, see you on the 30th! It’ll be interesting to see where the new suite is, compared to the old one.
