Save 4,000 British Airways Avios Points for Short Flights With This Trick!

I wrote that British Airways will be eliminating 1 of their best award deals by increasing the cost of short-haul (under 650 miles) partner flights in North America.

Currently it costs 4,500 British Airways Avios points for a 1-way, short-haul coach award flight on Alaska Airlines and American Airlines in the US.

After February 2, 2016, this will increase to 7,500 British Airways Avios points each way. Many folks are looking for an affordable substitute for award travel on flights under 650 miles.

While British Airways Avios points are still a good deal, there’s an alternative!  By transferring British Airways Avios points to their partner, Iberia, you can book short-haul, round-trip coach award flights in the US for fewer points!
