Every now and then I get round to updating my miles and points redemptions. I have been keeping track for almost 5 years and the results are pretty amazing to me! The breakdown is here, but the headline figures are 118 flights and 47 hotel nights for a total of just over 1.3 million Avios… Read More Miles and points takes me round (and round and round and round) the world
There is always something to be said for the Friday night get away from work, whether is it to Rome, Stockholm or, this weekend, back home, to stretch out time and relax. With Inverness as my destination, but unworkable flight times, I took a route I’ve travelled before, consisting of a late flight up to… Read More Aberdeen – the perfect Friday night getaway gateway
I once did an unexpected back to back in Rome when I went to collect my iPad that I had left on a plane. I was not planning to do the same on this time! This was, in fact, the first time that I had been on a ‘long’ Club Europe leg where you get… Read More Review: British Airways Club Europe London to Rome and back
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!
