British Airways is running a fantastic promo ( although watch out for those fees ) that offers Avios redemptions at 50% off for longhaul and 25% off shorthaul. You need to book by October 13th, but you have until June 20th, 2021 to complete your travel which is awesome. The biggest thing to remember, and I’ve already mentioned it, is the ridiculous taxes and fees that are tagged on to Avios bookings. We’re talking on average $500-700 per ticket, per way, and these aren’t reduced or waived.
*You can also use a companion certificate* That means roundtrip LAX to LHR for 85k Avios total for two people ( assuming you find avail). That could make the taxes and fees worth it
- Book by October 13th, 2020
- Fly by June 30th, 2021
- 50% off Longhaul Flights
- 25% off Shorthaul Flights ( Euro Traveller and Club Europe )

Here’s a quick look at LAX to LHR with the discount, but wow the fees are suffocating
