News in brief:
Get 75% off National Express trips for Amazon Prime members
Coach operator National Express is offering a surprisingly generous 75% discount on all routes.
The only catch is that you have an Amazon Prime membership – and if you don’t, you can get a 30 day free trial by clicking here.
Here’s the small print:
- you save 75% on purchases for up to four adults
- you need to book by 4th December
- you must travel by 31st January (Christmas Day and Boxing Day excluded)
- you must be an Amazon Prime member and use your Prime email address when booking
- you can use the deal with Discount Coachcards but not concessionary fares
- you must pay via Check Out with Amazon Pay

British Airways and Aurigny have an interline agreement
For some reason this wasn’t publicised at the time, but a reader pointed out that British Airways now has an interline agreement with Guernsey carrier Aurigny.
Having had a dig through the Guernsey press it seems that this was actually launched in July 2022.
Historically BA and Aurigny only shared operations at London Gatwick. However, in 2024 Aurigny will also be flying between London City and Guernsey 13 times per week.
An interline agreement is NOT a codeshare. You won’t earn Avios or BA tier points on Aurigny services if you book a BA flight on ba.com with an Aurigny connection. You will, however, get your luggage transferred across with no requirement to check it in again after the first flight.
Eurowings launching flights to Stuttgart
Eurowings, the low cost Lufthansa subsidiary, is launching flights from Manchester to Stuttgart.
Services will comments on 6th May. There will be four flights per week on Monday, Thursday, Friday and Sunday.
The flights will be bookable using Miles & More miles, although in my experience Eurowings redemptions are often poor value, and will also earn Miles & More credit.
