I just received an email from British Airways this morning. It states that starting May 30, 2019, award prices on partner airlines are changing.
American Airlines and Alaska Airlines are included.
What does this mean? Well, at this point, we have no specific numbers. But, I can only assume that the prices will go up. Right now, within the U.S. you can fly distances less than 1150 miles for only 7500 BA Avios on partner airlines. That price is a steal, especially with the transfer bonuses from Chase and Amex that happen from time to time.
I’ve used BA Avios to fly from DFW to Puerto Vallarta, Denver and Orlando for 7500 each way.
If you have a specific flight redemption in mind on BA Avios on a partner airline, I recommend you book it now. If you end up canceling the flight, you are just out the award taxes, and the miles are refunded to your account.
Readers, what do you think of this development?
