Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

It has been very messy for Iberia. It’s also true that, with flight prices so high at present, it may be cost BA more than planned.

The real issue though is the failed incentives. Those who pay the highest fares (and win with this system) are corporate customers who are forced to fly BA. You could give them zero Avios and they’d still have to fly BA.

It is the middle tier, businesses like HfP, who get flexibility who they fly with but don’t buy full flex seats that will lose from this system – and that’s a bad move for the airline.

I made 2corporate travels this year so 4 flights total (2 Buenos Aires-London) and 2 (London-Buenos Aires) in Business Class. This is my first time travelling so i didn’t know anything about Avios, i guess i should’ve research the matter before.

I claimed all the avios through BAEC (10k each flight approx), but i’m pretty sure now that if i claimed those avios through Iberia i would’ve got a lot more, because the price of the tickets on business it’s very expensive on BA.

Do you think my assumption is correct? if i need to travel again through BA this year should i claim those avios through Iberia instead? Or now it’s too late as i’m already Silver on BAEC and should i continue with them.

Thank you.
