Oh I’m sorry I missed that. I did check under ‘Frequent Flyer Programs’ and couldn’t see anything. Hopefuly the following advice on whether to dive in and use Avios before the cut off date adds to the previous post:
?I will only just fly enough to retain/make status = make Avios bookings for dates after your earnings year is complete
?I’m Bronze but will be Blue next year = make Avios bookings for dates after your earnings year is complete as you earn 25% more miles on paid tickets while Bronze
?I’m Silver but will be Bronze next year = make Avios bookings for dates after your earnings year is complete as you earn 100% more miles on paid tickets while Silver
?I’m Gold but will be Silver next year = make Avios booking for whenever you like as both Gold and Silver earn 100% more miles
?I’m Blue but will be Bronze soon = tough one this – you need paid flights to move to Bronze, but once Bronze you get a bonus of 25% on paid flights. But 25% isn’t so much so book for dates after you achieve Bronze.
?I’m Bronze but will be Silver soon = tough one this – you need paid flights to move to Silver, but once Silver you get a bonus of 100% on paid flights.
?I’m Silver but will be Gold soon = book for dates after you achieve Gold – although you will get better reward flight availability when Gold.
