From 4,500 Avios Pricing to 7,500 Avios Pricing, starting 2 February 2016
I got this email from British Airways this week for changing the reward pricing for North America.
We’re going to be making a change to the Executive Club pricing structure for shorter reward flights originating or terminating within the United States of America. From 2 February 2016, reward flights will start from 7,500 Avios, instead of 4,500 Avios, plus taxes, fees and carrier charges (“TFCs”) from $5.60 USD.
Only those reward flights that currently cost 4,500 Avios for a one way flight in Economy, 9,000 Avios for Business Class and 18,000 Avios for First Class plus TFCs will increase; to 7,500 Avios, 15,000 Avios and 30,000 Avios plus TFCs respectively. All other Avios reward flight pricing will remain the same as it is today.
If you have any travel plan that is affected by new pricing of Avios in North America, please make sure you redeem the award ticket before 2 February 2016.
