Unable to book EDI - DUB reward ticket

Hi all,

I'm a first timer in Aer Lingus but a frequent Qatar Airways flyer, so please pardon my ignorance. I'll be traveling from Edinburgh to Dublin in June (have confirmed availability on seats.aero) and the revenue fare for IE non-stop is a whopping GBP 156 per person, while the reward ticket should be 4500 Avios + taxes.

Unfortunately, IE doesn't show up at all on BA's award booking portal. For some reason, the option to book through Avios. com website throws a 404 error.

I'm going around in circles from IE website to Avios site, and haven't even got the reward flight search page yet. I have 2 questions:

1. Is booking the sector even permitted on BA and Avios portals? I know sometime restrictions might exist.

2. Am I using Avios website wrong? I'm logging in With Aerclub credentials, have the required amount of miles, but spend miles simply takes me back to an Aer Lingus webpage where i can spend Avios to offset cash on a revenue ticket.

Can someone share a link to the flight search page on Avios website. I'm accessing from India, but have access to VPN if needed.

Thanks in advance!

I can still log in to avios.com via Aerclub and can see availability but didn’t go as far as trying to book which is where the site usually crashes. Are you logging into avios.com or aerlingus?

Hi gjc31 ,

I login to Avios website. Somehow, the search screen doesn't work for me at all - just loads the Avios homepage after I search. Would appreciate if you can share the link of the search page so I can see if works. Thanks in advance!
