Keep in mind that cancellation or refund requests made by the customer for tickets purchased during the promotion implies withdrawal or cancellation of the promotional Avios, regardless of the refund date.
I think that is concerning the 10 one way flights everyone booked to get the 90k avios.

Wow, they don't make this easy. Checked that flights were available for avios redemptions for the dates i wanted. Called up to book flights today as i am unable to do so online. The agent was adamant the reason why i couldn't book online was because I was using goggle chrome. So I hung up, tried internet explorer - still couldn't book. Called up again, got through and they cut me off straight away. Tried yet again and got through to the same person as earlier. I explained I couldn't book through internet explorer either and was told there was a 15 euro fee for booking on the phone per person. Asked them to waive this as I have no option but to book over the phone, she said she could get into trouble for waiving the fee, so I asked her to escalate this to supervision. The answer was no. So I agreed to pay and as she went through to book the flights, low and behold the flight i wanted was no longer available. Asked her to escalate this issue to IT which she then admitted there had been a few issues like this. She said to try again tomorrow, my flight is for next week so I need to be booking soon. Back on the phone to them now, been on hold for 15 mins.....I don't hold much hope to having anything booked! Really questioning whether it was worth this hassle.

Iberia Plus keeps sending me requests to verify my identity for an account number that isn't mine and I did not create. So, no surprise that the information doesn't match on that account. I think they may believe I have duplicate accounts which might not be surprising given that their web site crashed when I was creating my account. I can't get a response from them with my actual real Iberia Plus number in the header.

My wife created an account and booked four flights. We sent in the documentation, no issues. 36,000 Avios in the account.

Datapoint

Perhaps this will be helpful for those that have been denied their Avios:

- new account
- booked 10 one ways on alternating dates
- initially locked out of account (used mobile app to reset)
- had to manually add ff number to existing reservations
- had to update profile in order to remove duplicate last name
- sent required information to confirm account was legitimate

No response after 2 weeks. Received the dreaded inconsistencies email this past weekend. Responded 2 days ago with a firm but kind email stating that I met terms and I expected Iberia t honor the promotion. Points posted today. Don't give up.

Cheers

Are people with old accounts with existing Avios balances also getting the error for non-IB metal flights?
  1. If "yes" there may be hope for those of us with new accounts and new points to book partner metal online at some point.
  2. If "no" then I'm less confident its a tech issue with a fix in the offing, and perhaps more of a permanent back door restriction to severely limit redemption for promo Avios.
In the case of 2...thinking about a couple work arounds (in theory)...
  • Costs of transfer aside, if Customer A has new promo Avios in a new account...if family member (without an account) established an IB account and Avios were transferred...would that break the redemption restriction? If the "blockage" is by IB account this could work, as the account would not have any promotional activity associated.
  • Has anybody tried purchasing some additional Avios? If the "blockage" is by promo Avios maybe having some "regular" Avios in your account would get you to the pricing screen on partner metal flights. Who knows what would happen next...

Regarding the first scenario, I have not done exactly what you described but I did transfer some miles from my wife's new IB+ account to my new IB+ account. Her miles were all promo miles, I cannot get an award to price though in my account or her account though,
Regarding the second scenario, I've transferred in 1,000 Amex MR to my new IB+ account to reach the total I needed for a ticket the I priced back in late June while we were in the 10 day waiting period. So, I now have some "non-promo" miles. I still cannot get to the pricing though.

So I've moved miles around in two ways, it has had no affect on my inability to price an award.

I have a new account and transferred in UR points to my Iberia Plus account from Chase, converting them to Avios, as I needed a little more for the award I was booking.

I still have a little left after the booking, so I just tried your experiment looking for a partner booking, but it made no difference for me - I still couldn't see partner pricing on the Iberia website, even though I had non-promotion Avios in my account.

They confirmed over the phone that it's not a technical issue, it's intentional... who knows the reason...

My old account can price partner awards without any issues.
My family's new accounts can't even price BA awards?!

We have now managed to book both partner flights we wanted given the technical error across 2 accounts. The process is agony, we went through multiple agents and the inconsistency in their training is astonishing.

I wish you all luck with your bookings. If you can, try and get them to hold the booking for you and email it to you real time before payment. We had one agent who heard 'December' as 'September', where this really helped.

You should ask to get the booking fee waived, but we gave up on this for our second flight after it took so long to find anyone competent enough to book it and it had previously repeatedly triggered hostility.

Do not ask for a supervisor, you will never get one. HUCA is the only option if the agent isn't competent.

This promotion, although generous, has convinced me I never want to fly Iberia. I have zero confidence in their call centres as a result of this and would never want to be caught relying on them in scenarios such as flight cancellations. We must have spent 2-3 hours on the phone to book 2 flights.

I got the 90k credited and opened an account for my fiance and he eventually got 90k credited after providing photo ID and PDF of booking confirmations. Does Iberia have any form of 'Family Account', we need 100k for the trip that we have planned, I can top up my Iberia account from BA but can't combine into his aco..... Is there a way around this?

A family member created an IB account tonight (has no Avios or activity), can also get to pricing screen on partner metal no problem. At least can price awards for the eventual call center HUCA agony that looms...

We have verified the information regarding the application that you have sent us, it has been detected that the account that is being made was due to the lack of duplicity, so it is not possible to make the Avios entry in your account

If you wish to cancel any of the tickets you bought for the promotion, you may do so free of charge on this exceptional occasion by sending us the ticket number (which begins with 075) before the 31st of July (Spanish Time - UTC/GMT +2 hours).

Kind Regards
Your Iberia Plus Service Center.

I had the same email. I think when I created my account I might have pressed enter twice as the web site did not respond. Looks like this resulted in 2 accounts being created. They have cancelled the account I used to create my bookings (which was the only account I knew I had) and left open an account I did not know existed!

I subsequently got another mail saying they had forwarded my details to the avios department but since the account I used has been cancelled I can't imagine I will get anything. Going to wait another week and then ask for the refund!
