    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...
