"AVios Was" for HKG is wrong

But don't book return. The fees ex HKG on a single are barely 30 plus 30,000.

Was tempted by this but seems I can't use my Lloyds upgrade voucher?

Thanks for posting this - just nabbed the last seat on the BKK-LHR route for 15,000 Avios to get me home for Christmas.

I have two existing redemptions at 30,000 Avios each way - if there are still seats available in the promotional window presumably I can rebook them at 15,000 now and then cancel the original ticket paying the relevant cancellation fee and get the 30,000 Avios deposited back (so a net refund of 15,000?)

I won't post a link to our story on this, but this bit has been since been corrected in the T&Cs
"Avios & Money bookings are included in the offer, but only the Avios will be discounted by 50%"
BA is now saying Avios part payment is not part of the offer. .

I got this on a return flight to Boston.

16500 Avios + 373.71
13200 Avios + 433.71
10725 Avios + 468.71
8250 Avios + 498.71
6600 Avios + 523.71
5775 Avios + 538.71

So seems to include pay pay.

I'm not getting the discount showing?

HKG>LHR on a random October date, off-peak, is still showing as 15000 avios + 29 taxes for me.

The T&Cs above quite clearly state that the offer cannot be combined with any other offers including upgrade vouchers I'm afraid. This means Lloyds and GUF are out.

They're not stupid, just making a terrible use of Avios into a not great one!

Weird: though even weirder I'm seeing 9,000 Avios AND 325 for an off-peak one way from HKG... which is a terrible deal.

I've always used my Avios for either SH flights where the taxes are ridiculously low, or a hotel stay where there are no taxes and a decent saving on a pricey room.

This is what I see, HKG>LON. The taxes look right, but the avios still does not!

Now seeing correctly, for other dates (7th Nov to 8th Nov). Looks about right? The Avios still looks off though at 9750?

It's normally 19,500 for BA HKG to LHR so what you ares seeing is correct at 9750.
