Frequently Asked Questions

Is british airways pushing through another stealthy avios devaluation?

British Airways has pushed through another stealthy Avios devaluation by quietly increasing the surcharges that it charges on Business Class award bookings on most of its long-haul routes.

How much is a business class ticket with avios?

I value Avios at around 0. 75p each so with the new surcharges taken into account, an off-peak Business Class fare between London and New York, for example, now effectively costs £1,539 roundtrip (100,000 Avios + £789 surcharges).

Do you still use avios for long haul premium cabin bookings?

Personally, I will continue to use Avios for short-haul flights with Europe and on the shorter routes within various world regions where Avios can be used on partner airlines, but I think this may be the last year in which I use Avios for long-haul premium cabin bookings as I can’t see the value any more.

Should you spend more avios when travelling outside the uk?

Some people will say that if you’re prepared to start your journey outside of the UK and don’t mind spending more Avios, things look a lot better…but that’s not always going to be the case.
