2x 2-4-1 + GUV2 Avios maths

Quick Q: I'm making a redemption for 4 in F, and we're using 2x UK amex 2for1 vouchers and 1x GUV2 - do I pay 2x business miles or 1x first miles and 1xbusiness?
Thank you!

Thank you! Rather a pants use of a GUV2 then :-)

PS: What happens if I use a GUF1 rather than a GUF2?

GUF1 is for one person.

You can't apply that to a 241 booking.

Hope this is the right forum and you can help me with a question:

I wanted to use my first GUV2 voucher. It is a cash booking in Economy NCE to YVC via LHR. We called BA and they said, there would no Avios seats be available for the long haul sectors. Why Avios seats? I thought just availability in the WTP class? I thought only the Amex Upgrade vouchers would need avios availability in the next class.

If using a GUF2 through BA than there has to be avios availability in the class you would like to upgrade to. Booking through a travel agent gets around this problem as there only needs to be revenue availability (certain classes) to use the GUF.

Thanks Esflyer95! This means when I have booked the ticket via BA then there is no chance to amend this now, meaning the answer is correct - there has to be Avios availability? Just want to re-clarify.

Yes once you have booked via BA there must be Avios availability for you to upgrade.

Avios availability may open up at any time before the flight. If it does - and all other things being equal - you should be able to use your upgrade voucher to upgrade one or more sectors in the booking.
