Assume this applies to all fare types, i.e. return plus fare would give you 100 TCs?

Well almost all the flights are 7.5 credits anyway so you will be 30 credits on a cheap return

Might get lucky and get 60 for a round trip

Question really is how much will it cost to go Advantage fare and get 100 each way

I imagine the best value TP/ will be a plus fare return if you can book it at non peak times. Good TP run opportunity.

Quick search show for 140 return Plus fares (1.4/TP) (versus 387 (1.94/TP) Advantage and 60 saver (2/TP) )

Go all out and get Concierge for <1500 or Platinum for 840 or Silver for 420

Looking at options to renew Concierge and 100 for 140 euro is bargain (especially when I just paid 631 for 75 to TATL Y)

Great. Booked DUB-LGW-DUB flight last week for mid March. Why can't they just include any flight taken in March?

Aer Lingus on twitter seemed to indicate that you would earn double TPs regardless of when you booked. As always though the proof will be with them landing in your account!

Will be interesting to see for anyone who changes their booking during March that was bought in February and a ticket is reissued if they get double also.

Anyone know if a back to back at LGW is feasible - flights seem to turn around in 40 mins there which sounds tight with all the walking I remember from last time I was there. Is there a connecting shortcut?

Despite my previous post it seems twitter team have reversed their original opinion and now only flights booked and flown in March will count, sorry to get the hopes up.

Dont think Id risk it to be honest. Not enough time to arrive and re clear. The best flights for a turnaround are out at 1245 arriving 1410 spend some time in the lounge then back on the 1710 arriving to Dublin at 1830. Seems the best option without having to get up too early and not being back too late.

Nice, those double tier points add in automatically, feared I might have to chase them up.

And indeed it did not apply to flights booked in February but taken in March

Yes mine have all posted within 5 days of the flights. I was expecting a lengthly wait and emails to chase up so a nice change for once. LGW being a route I fly all the time this promo was exceptionally good for me.

Same experience here - (double) credits for day return to LGW last week posted after five days.
