British Airways is offering 25% off coach and World Traveller Plus Avios redemptions between London and NYC, Philadelphia, Boston, Toronto, Montreal, St Lucia or Bermuda for the rest of this year. Travel must be booked by May 30th.
While 30,000 points round trip between NYC and London sounds like a steal, it is less of a steal when you include the $656 in taxes and fees on top of that. World Traveller Plus is 45,000 miles plus $750 on that route.
They’re also offering 25% off redemptions to Tokyo, Shanghai, Beijing, Bangalore, Mumbai, Delhi, and Dubai. That JFK-NRT flight will be 75,000 miles + $1,028, please. In coach.
It’s a terrible deal, but that doesn’t mean I shouldn’t share it.
