@Iainm thanks for the info. I assume you use the exact 241 voucher on your outbound but if I may ask if it is on BA or IB? I am trying to add an IB inbound flight and EZY to EDI. The plan is book full avios on BA site and call in to ask for 50% avios refund.

I booked madrid to Santiago on day 355 using voucher, the return 2 weeks later both at midnight, using BA site but flying on IB. Called ba for refund on the voucher a day later. Then booked lon to Madrid on BA as reward flight saver (50 pence each one way) (in economy as im BA Silver)and did not link that flight to the 2 4 1 to eliminate any chance of being stung for uk tax. As for return from madrid I’m pricing up cash fare home from madrid on BA as the price is very reasonable(circa 70 quid in the cheap seats) so not worth the 23500 avios for both of us, but I guess I could link the last leg to the voucher if I could be bothered! 🤣

The iberia lon madrid flight ( very appealing if you book the right aircraft and cabin, u can get a lie flat to madrid from london) seemed more expensive at the time both in terms of cost and avios.
