More often than not, flight reviews on this site and others are for premium cabins. Given the lower number of seats and therefore smaller turnover of passengers, it means that Business of First flights seem more special and worth writing about, compared to an Economy leg. However, in planning for this trip, I realised that… Read More Review: American Airlines London – New York in Economy
My first Avios redemption was from London to Edinburgh for my little brother’s Stag do. That was back in 2013 and in the following 5 years I have kept track of where and how I have spent then. It struck me the other day that, with the purchase of flights for Christmas 2018, I have… Read More I’ve just spent my millionth Avios!
I always say that my Avios are worth at least 1.67p each or, more commonly that 9,000 are worth £150 or a flight to Nice. This rolls of the tongue, but is there actually any truth behind it? First of all, your Avios value depends on how you get them and how you spend them.… Read More Is my valuation of Avios accurate?
This trip started out two years ago as a provisional cruise booking from Costa Rica, up the Pacific coast calling in at other Central American countries and docking in San Diego. On her trip round South America in 2016, the cruise line was promoting future cruises and new destinations. Costa Rica took MummyAirmile’s fancy, to… Read More GUEST POST – Another year, another holiday for MummyAirmiles
As anyone who knows me will tell you, I like to plan in advance. It can be a good thing, when we are able to get great deals, or seats on flights which later sell out; but I do recognise that it comes at the expense of spontaneity. However, I like having something in the… Read More Summer 2018 starts to take shape
I wrote in this post about the promise of festive cheer from British Airways and with flight out of Heathrow for Christmas it was a chance to discover whether they were to be delivered. The arrival at Heathrow was not a great start. As a Gold card holder, I can guest one into the Galleries… Read More Did BA deliver on their festive promises?
Christmas in the UK always seems to bring up images of travel chaos in the media, with a sprinkling of snow shutting down roads and disruption on the railways due to engineering works making things difficult. A week or so ago was no exception, with a particularly cold spell hitting London leading to long delays… Read More Flying BA this Christmas? It is meant to be almost but not quite entirely unlike BA!
The invitation to a friend’s wedding in Washington D.C. was the perfect excuse to use a BA AmEx 2for1 voucher I had sitting in my account. I knew that it was on the cards, and had at least 120,000 Avios in the household account when the invitation came through the post at the end of… Read More Review: British Airways First Class Experience – London Heathrow – Washington D.C.
Flights to Nice are my benchmark for value in the miles and points game. I know that I will happily pay up to about £150 per person return. There have been times where I have got a better deal, particularly when tying it in with a car hire. There are other times, however, where the… Read More How British Airways Gold Priority Rewards saved me £564
MisterAirmiles and I were off on a weekend trip to Luxembourg City, principally for me to gather TPs and Avios to help me retain BAEC Silver status. It was Club Europe all the way from Inverness via Heathrow for 160TPs. The plan was an excruciatingly early start for the 0725 flight from T3 to LUX on… Read More GUEST POST: MummyAirmiles’ LUXurious tier point run
