Fantastic! Summer calendar's suddenly lit up with award availability. Of course on BA those awards come with hefty surcharges, but nonetheless I'll take it!

British Midland flights from London to Ireland are not showing up. Hopefully these will be appearing down the line. They do appear on the BA web site as paid flights now with BD flight numbers. I've flown a lot with them over the years.
