Redeeming Avios through Aer Lingus?

Can anyone point me to how to search for award space on EI using EI's award chart for Avios? I see space when searching United, and I have an Aer Lingus account (empty), an Avios.com account, and access to Avios from credit cards (for any of EI/BA/IB), but when I try to access reward bookings through AerLingus.com and Avios.com, it either loops back around or sends me to an ancient text search form, which then loops back around when submitted.

I had thought maybe this was related to the AerClub site outage recently, but it's back now and I still can't search for EI awards. (And searching BA doesn't find EI space as far as I can tell.)

You need to use avios.com (which you can access with your aer lingus account credentials). You can search flights (rather awkwardly if looking for broad availability on a range of routes/dates) there. You are correct in saying you will not find EI options via a BA search. I tried avios.com quickly just now and worked for me on a search.

How did you get the search to work at Avios.com? Did you get this?



This is the closest I can ever get it to actually searching for award space, and even if I use this form and submit, it just goes back to the account landing page.

As @ROKNA points out this is the typical search screen. I have no idea what basic search element you seem to be getting through to is, I've never encountered that. Dare I suggest it's a browser issue, maybe try another browser or an update of your current one?

It happens on three different browsers. The Avios.com webchat is online now so I'm talking with them.

Thanks, all.
