    Being married to a Disney nut / teacher, we are limited to when we can get away to Orlando. Just by chance I looked for avios availability in August tonight, and to my surprise there was flights in all three classes available. Did they add an extra flight recently?

    Jumped on it and booked two weeks return in clubworld using 2-4-1 voucher so very happy endeed.

    I don’t know the answer to your question but sounds like a great result! We’re booked on LHR-MCO in August (booked t-355 on Avios) and when I recently went to check cash prices there was only CW available on the outbound and nothing at all on the inbound. The LGW flights are looking more available but it’s looking very busy so wouldn’t be surprised if they’ve added extra flights.

    It appears that one of the LHR flights may have been moved to LGW and both flights switched from A350 to 777 (also with the loss of Club Suite). I don’t think an additional flight has been added, at least not for a couple of spring dates I checked.

    On further review I think I looked too early in the year. I agree that another LGW flight has been added in the summer which has resulted in lots of Avios availability opening up. I think I’d misremembered that there has been a LHR and LGW flight each day for some time, so I don’t think any flights have been moved, but I’m sure that some flights have had a change of aircraft type.
