off-peak travel days 2019

i have dropped to a lowly blue status...no status...so i am wondering if my search to use a 2-4-1 BAChase certificate is limited. i have the Aveos and i have the certificate but when i search for flights in the september and october 2019 time frame there are no dates showing as being off-peak. am i doing something wrong or is it true that there are no off-peak days? can you suggest a way for me to input my information to see off-peak availability? thanks

The entire period from 7 September through 31 October 2019 is off-peak, as indicated by the bolded line under each date on the Award Availability Calendar. If the date is available, the bolded line is red. If not, it is grey.

Handy article showing BA & Iberia off-peak dates: https://www.headforpoints.com/2018/0...alendars-2019/

Why does the Head for Points calendar not match the off-peak days shown on ba.com? October 2019, for example.

Must have been some tweaking at BA. Our version was a cut and paste from the website on the day we published it.

And I wonder if the agents have the same one or a different one entirely? I called to book flights and was charged off-peak for the return. I fully expected it to be peak. Now it could be the agent just making a mistake, but he did seem to check a calendar to identifybif peak/off-peak. Obviously I did not question the agents decision.

May we assume that the website will be corrected?

OK, so I've been back to the HFP peak and off-peak list and it is NOT wrong.

That is ..... based on the BA dates published on avios.com, the dates are still as per our article. Off peak in Oct 2019 is 1-11th and then all other Tue, Wed and Thurs.

If ba.com is claiming that certain dates are now peak when our list shows them as off-peak, or vice versa, then someone failed to tell avios.com. Perhaps try making the booking at avios.com?
