British Airways is offering 25%-50% off Avios redemptions on BA flights.

This sale requires ticketing by 10/13 and is valid for travel through 6/30/21.

Long haul flights in all cabins will be 50% off and short-haul flights will be 25% off.

You can cancel BA Avios awards for the lesser of $55 or the tax paid.

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.

BA’s new A350 business class suite can be found on routes like London-Tel Aviv:

 

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 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.
  • You can currently earn 100K Avios with the Chase Aer Lingus Card. You’ll earn 50K bonus 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.
  • You can currently earn 100K Avios with the Chase Iberia Card. You’ll earn 50K bonus 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.

This deal will also stack with the companion certificate you can earn for spending $30K annually on the Chase British Airways Card!

Dan just want to make sure if I transfer chase points I will get one for one

Ben

Yes

Cham

Yes you will

Moses

Yes

Elizabeth warren

My search resulted in availability but fuel surcharges of more than $600. Considering that I can purchase tickets for about $800 on other airlines.

MF

NYC to LHR is showing as 12.5k Avios, not 6.5k as per the post?

bs

did u check one way

MF

Yes that was one way. I am UK based, could that be making a difference?

MF

The 6.5k Avios option is £110 in taxes for me…

Chaim

NYC- LON Is 6.5k Avios plus $37 taxes by me. (Not $64)

Boxy

What dates did you get $37? I see $82 for June.

Chaim

Oct 15

Mendel

Why does TLV-LHR-ORD cost more miles than ORD-LHR-TLV?

bs

whats the canclaiton policy

joel

go to checkout page

joel

chase often credits the 100 even if you pay just 64
credits take a few months…

bs

DOSENT PAY FOR 200+ SURECHARGES

Mendel

No waiver for Covid?

joel

for some reason when booking an adult and child its more worthwhile rt, also surcharges become much much less ! so play around with it before booking.

Dav

Got 6500 avios and $49.98 from ewr to lhr

MF

What dates

kjalman

If I can make up any age on my ticket then why cant I ssay I am 5 years old to et the cheaper taxes when using british airwya avios thank you

bs

who said you could put in any age

TK

If i book 4 tickets and need to cancel, will they charge me $55 x 4 = $220 or just $55? The total taxes and fees are 26500 avios and $268 tac and fees

leo

Is it just me or all $82.00 tax and fee flights are gone? I tried JFK and EWR

iahphx

Any idea why PHL-LHR coach fees are more than 3x as expensive as JFK-LHR fees? The JFK-LHR award is pretty reasonable deal for June travel if you want to start a European trip in London. The PHL-LHR award is terrible.

ddmooo

Is this for only BA fights, It did not show any discount for oneworld partner flights when it books me on AA from ORD to ELH

j

Can this be taken advantage of if the flights are intra-US. For example, LAX-JFK or the reverse, would that be considered short haul and qualify for the 25%?

Something you may not know Dan!...

Used my Chase companion coupon (2 people) in First (and business where not available) JFK-TLV return TLV-YYZ! and saved appx $1k in taxes!

MG

I think there site is very glitchy ,i booked a few of these tickets NYC-Lhr & lhr -nyc.. its weird some flights are displaying diffrent $$ amounts on the flight page and changing once your on the checkout page ! 6.5k plus $65 when clicking the flight than when you go to the checkout page it changes to like $229 .. .. I tried a different flight and it said 6.5k and $178 nyc-lbhr than when I went to check out it changed to 6.5k & $65 .. so I was able to grab it .

L

Dan,
Just want to confirm, once you transfer in to BA miles, and you don’t end up using them, you can’t transfer them anywhere else? Correct?

Jacob

Any chance this will be extended?

Glushtygiz

2%

Glushtygiz

Is ba still serving hermolis now?

ari

BA has made that award tickets from london to nyc are without taxes – and the amount you pay with cash are called price of ticket – so you are not recieving any discount for childern under 16 years old because there arent any taxes – do you think that it will be in the end a lawsuit against them ?
