Hopefully this comes as no surprise to anyone, but today is the last day to redeem your British Airways Executive Club miles before they turn into
Avis Avios Points.
Today is the day to book those Cathay Pacific first and business class tickets to Asia and LAN business class tickets to South America. I’ve been so busy helping clients burn their miles that I have 600,000 British Airways miles (between family members and me) I’m hoping to burn today. I’m hoping to book two first class tickets to Asia on Cathay Pacific and two business class tickets to South American on LAN, with more than enough miles left over for a British Airways first class ticket from New York to Europe when Avios kicks in, since the new program will actually lower the cost.
Funny enough my brother is actually looking forward to the Avios program. He lives in New York and is booking the tickets for his honeymoon next summer, and the price for his tickets should go down by (at least) 30,000 miles in first class.
Anyway, since I’ll likely spend half of my day on hold with British Airways, feel free to ask any last minute redemption options here and I’ll do what I can to help.
Speaking of Avios, check out this hilarious poem from a FlyerTalker: The Avios Are Coming! The Avios Are Coming!
It’s the funniest thing I’ve read in a very long time.
