    Thanks all, my bad, I got ahead of myself with my thread not showing and I apologise for the bad forum etiquette !

    So I’m none the wiser. What are reward flights?

    What am I meant to take better advantage of my avios points?

    Also, on a separate note, I made a thread an hour or so ago but I can’t see it in the forum or in my account under ‘threads created. Are threads vetted before posted? How long does this take usually?

    Would have been nice to see a warning page/note or something beforehand.

    Every flight BA reserves at least 4 business class (Club World/Europe), 2 Premium Economy (World Traveller Plus) and 8 Economy (World Traveller/Euro Traveller) seats that can only be booked via Avios. You will pay the fare with Avios and the taxes/surcharges with cash.

    These can be cancelled up to 24 hours before the flight, and you will get the cash and Avios elements back, less a £35 cancellation fee. I believe there is currently an IT glitch, so short haul BA return flights incur only a £1 cancellation charge when cancelled online.

    The flights are bookable on the BA website via the Book > Book flights with Avios page. Rob has an Avios guide here:

    There is some more advanced information here:

    Thank you so much. I will start here!

    Thanks, I’ve just found the article and you’re right as she currently has a personal Platinum. I had mistakenly thought because it was a membership rewards card, she would be eligible for a bonus on a cashback card.
