Some data points.

Points from me and husband merged within one day. Access code arrived the next morning and booking confirmation email arrived within the hour. All booked for the 6th August. Managed to get Ryanair from Dub to ATH for £150 each and CE with BA for the return ATH-BHD for £375 each. It feels like a result for a last minute impulse buy!

Similar timescales. I wasn’t feeling risky enough to wait and see if September became available, so we’re B2B on the 2 different Greek trips from 13th-27th Aug.

I was however feeling risky enough to just book same day flights on Jet2 out of Stansted. Just under £450 each with legrooms seats and hold bag, plus it’s easier for us to get there then LHR or LGW anyway. BA wanted closer to £700 each for much worse timings, and it was well over £750 for better ones! Happy to lose the TP and Avios on that one…
