    BA changing partner award prices

    Uh oh, this cannot be good news :( British Airways is apparently making "changes" to the number of Avios required for redemptions on partner airlines, except for BA, Iberia, Aer Lingus and Vueling. However, they haven't actually said what the new prices will be! I expect prices will increase...

    Being bumped - less obvious downside of award bookings

    Late last year I was booked into business with QF on MEL-ADL using BA Avios, and was downgraded at the gate to economy, being left to chase up a refund for the difference with British Airways. In my most recent booking, my partner and I were bumped from a MEL-CNS QF flight the night before...

    Hi, I am a premium member of EF and a QFF plat. I have added my QFF number to EF but the searches do not reflect the availability on the QF award site. I have checked dates for SYD-SIN/JNB/HKG and, although seats are available on the QFF engine, they do not show on EF. EF is so much easier to...

    Earning Avios with AND free award night

    I was just scoping out BA Avios and learned if you book through the BA website to here you can still earn your rewards night after every 10 nights (which I value highly for personal stays in non-chain places) but you can earn Avios as well. Thinking about accruing a few Avios as I...
