Hi guys. Due to my stupidity or not being able to know I lost 400 TPs and am now still 270 T'Ps clear of silver. I've got to achieve this by January 2015. My starting point would be Glasgow. I know that some of youuse tools but I can't exactly remember the name therefore am not really efficient in my search.

Could anyone of you please help me? I'm looking also for any ideas for a weekend nonstop TP run. I don't care about sleep and my budget would be around 800 GBP. Any ideas or so would be welcome. Many thanks community.

2) Me using 2 vouchers for myself and a companion on the 1 flight = TWO upgrades total
it's the latter which I have bolded. you cannot use a GUF1 to upgrade 2 pax (whether travelling togehter or not).

What I am not sure about is whether you can apply a 2-4-1 after you've applied a GUF1. the website doesnt allow that combination (but does allow GUF2 plus 2-4-1) so I assume one can't.

Mini TP run: PHL-LAS 111 USD in Y on US = £0.79 per TP

First TP post, so if any of this is wrong, many apologies.

From the MR deals thread, 179USD PHL-LAS available on a few dates Oct/Nov/Dec, and 185usd also available on some more. Wednesdays have the best availability.

Unless I'm mistaken, should be 140 TP - and is according to BA TP calculator.

Same day turns available (2 hour turnaround in some cases).

I know that some of youuse tools but I can't exactly remember the name therefore am not really efficient in my search.

Could anyone of you please help me? I'm looking also for any ideas for a weekend nonstop TP run. I don't care about sleep and my budget would be around 800 GBP. Any ideas or so would be welcome. Many thanks community.
Can't see anything fancy which would give it to you in one run, but over a couple of weekends (should be available most weekends in Nov/Dec):

Nov 22: GLA-LHR-HEL
Nov 23: HEL-LHR-GLA
£463.77 for 200 TPs (business)

Nov 28: GLA-LHR-DUB
Nov 29: DUB-LHR-GLA
£342.75 for 120 TPs (business)

Flights almost fit into your budget, however you'll need to stay overnight in both HEL and DUB. You might want to use matrix.itasoftware.com to explore other options, just put

/alliance oneworld

into advanced routing codes. Note that GLA-LON will give you at most 20 TPs (even when booked business), shorthaul international flights (and Jersey) out of LON are 40 , and shorthaul+ are 80 per leg in business. The list of the latter is available in the wiki at the top of this post. Might be worth trawling the BA's low fare finder for good deals in business to these destinations (those will typically will be exLON though).

HTH.

There seems to be some reasonable TP runs ex-DUB to SJU next summer.

E.g.: DUB-LHR/LCY-JFK-MIA-SJU and back in I/I/A/I with the TATLs on the Babybus. 700 TPs for £1252. Lots of dates available in Jul, Aug, Sep.

Sadly not available in June which is when I wanted to go If anyone can find an ex-EU to SJU/ANU/SKB/etc. with a similar £/TP earning ratio in mid-June please let me know.

Yes, you currently earn TPs for US flights as if they were fully flexible Y even when they aren't.

My only personal 'fear' around this is that they will fix it one day so am personally avoiding booking flights too far in advance (was contemplating march next year) hoping / assuming that will still be the case.

Should be fine for oct, nov and dec though - famous last words.

Please remember to check if that deal still exists.

I have no idea, try asking the card issuer. If it's online only, you will probably struggle as most of these fares need to be booked over the telephone.

No, Hawaii to California is an expensive route. Avios availability in F always seems to be tight as well.

Yes, but they have to be in a household account with you.

Picked up HBO fare to ATH for late November, £3.01 per TP (and about 50 Avios per £) - out on Saturday morning and back Sunday night. Will wait to see whether I get POUG in a few days.

(I know I'm taking a liberty as over £3 per TP, so not added to wiki, but as only 38p in it at £120.38 and a great Avios haul may be of interest)

Not exactly the most Tier Points, but nevertheless an interesting trip could be had to Hong Kong next July for £278 . Earning 115 Tier Points flying with Royal Jordanian. Starting in Madrid and finishing in Vienna, routed through Amman. Could be a fun trip, and is a great price. Unfortunately, not many Avios though. Quoted on Budgetair.co.uk



I'm tempted myself, but I already have a trip booked to Asia next year.

Make sure you save all of your tickets and boarding passes. I've had difficulty getting credit for the RJ flights I've taken, and had to fax (yes, fax) in copies of my boarding passes and the receipts to the US service center to try to get TP and Avios credit. It apparently is a common issue with RJ, and you cannot even use the normal online claim form for RJ as it's not in the pulldown menu on the form.

Could be empty with plenty of room to stretch out?

Added: Just had a play with the RJ.com website and for some reason, they want TSA info from MAD-HKG.
