Last Jan a single Avios in Club LHR to CPT was 50,000 Avios plus £211 charges. Just booked the same…plus £358 charges! The taxes are the same, so I asked the a Exec a Club why the 70% increase….because “the fuel surcharge has increased”. The only word to describe my reaction….speechless!
So an Avios Club is now almost as expensive as a full-fare in economy.
And we used to complain about Ryanairs dodgy deals!
