British Airways has 10%-50% off Avios redemptions on flights to, from, or through London.

This sale requires ticketing by 11/21 and is valid for travel from 11/7/19-4/30/20.

Economy and Premium Economy tickets are 50% off, while business and first class tickets are 10% off.

Typically you want to avoid using Avios to fly BA as the fuel surcharges can be ridiculous, but those surcharges have been lowered in coach and with this deal there can be some worthwhile uses, especially if you only need a one-way ticket.

If you book a one-way flight to London with this sale you can also use miles with another airline to fly back from anywhere in Europe to US with lower taxes and no fuel surcharges. Note that London’s APD tax only applies for departures from London and not for connecting in London. It also doesn’t apply to kids 15 and under in economy.

You can currently earn up to 100K Avios with the Chase British Airways Card. You’ll earn 50K bonus British Airways Avios for opening and spending $3,000 in 3 months. You’ll earn another 50K bonus Avios for spending an additional $17,000 in 12 months.

Chase British Airways Cardholders get 3 rebates per year for taxes and fees on one-way or round-trip BA flights from the US. The rebate is capped at $200 in business or first class or $100 in economy or premium economy. The credit is per reservation, so you’ll want to book passengers on separate reservations to maximize the benefit. The rebate will be capped at $200 in business or first class or $100 in economy or premium economy.

Over $500 surcharges for ORD-TLV round trip.

yed

You sated “JFK to Tel Aviv via London: 11.5K Avios+$156”
well there is an old bug on the BA site making it display different tax amounts on the initial search result page, but once you continue on to the next page the tax amount raises, in this case of NYC-TLV it goes up to $234.1 unfortunately…

Shaul

Lll

rediplus

all going through Amman on RJ… no thanks

JW

i only have a handful of avios in my account. can i transfer chase rewards points (I ave a sapphire reserve card) into Avios? If I transfer 50,000 points, would I get 75,000? does this make sense to do?

Move

You can travel with cash or by booking with CSR points for $340 round trip jfk to London that’s less than just the taxes on round trip with points.

Eli

Can I book to Israel and stop over in London for a day?

Anon

“JFK or Boston to London: 6.5K Avios+$93 Economy”

Not seeing it. Best I’m seeing is 6.5K Avios+$280 or thereabouts.

BA

Economy plus or premium economy is 50 % off?

mo

Daniel Mammon

Hey dan, I booked a flight for my son to come back for a month for pesach and paid with Avios. Any chance they would refund the Avios I overpaid, now that they have this deal?
