Trying to book DUŚ MAD SPC, I believe this should be 7.5K per segment in “peak”, but it’s pricing out as 8.5K. Am I missing something? IB awards should not have changed.

I do wonder how they would react if others copied their content?
I also have issues with semi-pro bloggers nicking my material, and sometimes not even correcting my typos in their lifting process. This includes those who really should know better. When challenged, the reply tends to go down two channels: "oh I'm really sorry, I was in a rush", and the material is then acknowledged. The other approach is to ignore complaints.
Flying Yazata and KARFA like this.

Have a look at the IB table in the sticky here https://www.flyertalk.com/forum/30593374-post3.html

For band 2 (651-1,150 miles) IB prices at 7,500 off-peak and 8,250 peak in Y.

DUS-MAD-SPC one way in Y should be Peak 8,250 + 8,250 = 16,500 or Off-peak 7,500 + 7,500 = 15,000. I have just checked on ba.com and it seems to be pricing correctly.

Thank you so much. I could swear when I was looking a few days ago and it was 15K for both flights. Sorry for interrupting.

Strange that some domestic U.S. routes like LGA-DCA and LGA-BOS are still showing under the old table, 7.5k each way. I wonder if they made an exception for these short shuttle routes or if it is a glitch.

Just booked a DCA-CMH ticket at 7.5 K. It wold be nice to have the 6K award, but these short flights might go to band 2 at 9K.
