British Airways has been firming up its short haul schedule for the winter / spring flying season which begins on the last Sunday in October.
Flyertalk has a full list of changes, according to BA employees, in this thread – look at the wiki post at the top.
I won’t bother with the decreases, but the following routes will see frequency increases:
- Belfast City
- Milan Linate
The Gatwick schedule under BA Euroflyer was published some months ago.
The changes have been dropping into the BA booking system over recent weeks so there wasn’t a sudden release of Avios seats last week. However, if you had been looking for Avios seats in the November to March period for any of the routes above and came up blank, it is worth checking again.
How to earn Avios from UK credit cards (September 2023)
As a reminder, there are various ways of earning Avios points from UK credit cards. Many cards also have generous sign-up bonuses!
In February 2022, Barclaycard launched two exciting new Barclaycard Avios Mastercard cards with a bonus of up to 25,000 Avios. You can apply here.
You qualify for the bonus on these cards even if you have a British Airways American Express card:
There are two official British Airways American Express cards with attractive sign-up bonuses:
You can also get generous sign-up bonuses by applying for American Express cards which earn Membership Rewards points.
Run your own business?
We recommend Capital On Tap for limited companies. You earn 1 Avios per £1 which is impressive for a Visa card, along with a sign-up bonus worth 10,500 Avios.
You should also consider the British Airways Accelerating Business credit card. This is open to sole traders as well as limited companies and has a 30,000 Avios sign-up bonus.
EDIT: Applications for this card are temporarily suspended due to IT issues with the British Airways On Business SME loyalty scheme.
There are also generous bonuses on the two American Express Business cards, with the points converting at 1:1 into Avios. These cards are open to sole traders as well as limited companies.
