British Airways Avios Update: The Sky’s NOT Falling (Phew!)

Earlier this week, the miles and points community got a bit panicked (myself included!) when news came out that Iberia had posted a partner award flight redemption chart with very expensive rates.  This got folks worried, because British Airways and Iberia’s frequent flyer programs are linked and share a common award currency (Avios points).

There was fear that British Airways would soon follow with an award chart devaluation.  Using British Airways Avios points for short-haul, coach class tickets on partner airlines like American Airlines is 1 of the best award values around!

That’s because 1-way flights under 650 miles cost only 4,500 Avios points plus $5.

Update:  British Airways is NOT changing its Avios partner award chart.  Here’s an updated post with the latest information!

Via View From the Wing and Million Mile Secrets’ readers, there could be huge changes coming to the British Airways frequent flyer program.  And if this happens, it’s NOT good news!

Folks like to use British Airways Avios points for cheap, short-haul award tickets on American Airlines, because it only costs 4,500 Avios points (and no fuel surcharges) for a 1-way coach class ticket for flights under 650 miles.  This is an amazing deal, because other US airlines charge 12,500 points for the same award ticket!
