I know we have moved on slightly but reading from the top of the thread and the offer of Avios points am I the only person that thinks these are a complete and total waste of time, why give something that can never be redeemed? I have tried countless times to redeem all the Avios points I have as well as the 2 upgrade vouchers which are also not worth the paper they are supposed to be printed on!!!
With a lot of choice here in Asia I have managed to get flights on CX and MAS using Avios but you them there folks based in the good ol UK what chance have you got??
AA have it right in the US where you can rock up and put yourself down for an upgrade at the gate at least you are getting the use out of your miles, I am fed up with the BA person at the end of the phone saying “the computer says no”
