Need a quick 50 TP from MAN...

Looking to hit 50 TPs on a day trip somewhere, as cheap and quick as possible. I came up with MAN-LCY on a sunday afternoon in business but I can't seem to force the BA booking system to give me a 10TP economy one way from LHR back to MAN same day. Any ideas?

Book it and then call up and ask them to put you in N. About 10-15

Btw The MAN-LCY flights on Sundays are frequently late.
Have you looked at MAN-DUB?

Not if you book it first and then change it within the first 24 hours. If you don't like the N quote you can of course cancel the whole things for a full refund. No booking fee, but there is the fare difference to pay.

Didn't realise they had this route, just spotted it now As an aside is there any easy way to see all the routes from Manchester on the BA network?

Would you believe it is as simple as
ba.com/manchester

Then click Flights. It's still a bit of a mess, but you've got LHR, LCY, DUB, PMI, ALC, IBZ, JMK, NCE, BLL. Unfortunately not on a daily basis.....
