Fancy a trip to London this autumn or winter?
For 2 weeks only, British Airways is having a sale on coach class award tickets to and from London, UK. Over 20 destinations are included, and cost half the number of miles normally needed for an award seat. But you have to book by July 13, 2014, for travel between October 1, 2014, and February 28, 2015. And travel between December 18, 2014, and January 10, 2015 (when many folks want to travel), is excluded.
You can book both 1-way and round-trip award tickets with this sale. But even though you’re paying half the usual number of miles, you’re still responsible for paying the full amount of taxes and fees for the ticket. Those can be upwards of 400 pounds (~$684) round-trip!
BUT…you’ll have to jump through some hoops to take advantage of the deal, including signing-up for a UK Avios account.
You Can Book Over 20 Destinations for Half the Usual Number of Miles (but the Same High Taxes and Fees)
But are there any circumstances where this may be a good deal for you?
