I’ve posted in the past about how to use online award tools to your advantage to find a desirable award. One of the tools I mentioned was BA’s tool, which was great for checking partner award availability on airlines that are otherwise difficult to find online, although wasn’t very functional when it came to checking awards on BA flights.
Fortunately that has changed. BA did a massive overhaul of their online award tool, and I can truly say it’s extremely functional now. You still have the ability to check for partner availability using the old tool, but finding awards on BA metal is now easier than ever. You can search for several months at a time, by region (as opposed to a single destination), or even by the number of miles you’re willing to spend.
I can’t imagine it being any easier, so check it out if you’re looking for a OneWorld award!
