6 to CPT with Avios!Back to Forum
Anonymous16 Feb 2016
So here is a tricky one….
I would rather not spend £7K flying 6 of us to CPT for Christmas. However, while have plenty Avios there is shortage of reward availability. There are children in the party so we have to be on same flight. Dates flexible apart from cannot leave UK until 19th and need to be back by 8/9th. I had thought of using avios to fly to Dubai then SA and back via Doha, as some availability there. However, anyone got any alternative routings to consider?
Many thanks as always.16 Feb 2016

You didn’t say whether and what BAEC status you might have. If Avios availability is not an issue and you have BAEC Gold, have you seen this?16 Feb 2016
