Thank you very much.

Such a shame as we'd much rather go at the end of March into early April! Nothing along those lines is there?

It appears that I've got the first week of January off work (back on the 7th).

Does anyone know of a good TP run (less than £2/TP ideally) heading south-ish (ie somewhere warmer!)?

Why not just look at the last couple of posts before yours and play with the dates. You‘ll find Stockholm to Miami Dec 28 - Jan 5 for about GBP1200. Route via HEL and JFK for 600TP. There‘s a lot to be gained here but you will have to do a bit yourself.
contractor and etiene like this.

Just to say thanks all for the tips (again). Nabbed two trips for early next year which will top up the tier points - one an awkward open jaw into SAT and out of OKC (with a GUF1, might as well use it ey ;-) and back over the pond on the daytime flight from JFK (which is always my preference). Starting in GVA saved me loads! £1400 I think all in. Ten days later I'll be off to Oz using the QT sale fares... almost went for the lowest price of just under £2k in business round trip from ARN! In the end I went with CPH which was a little more but easier/better timings.

The wiki is there, but alas no one has provided any data.

Spoke too soon. While waiting for the GUF response and before the ticket was issued, BA pulled the GVA/ZRH fares. They apparently got the "1" and the "4" in the wrong order and have put them right again
