​​​​​It clearly states that. And also give an example. If you did not redeem them on IB+ you will have for sure a negative balance and with the IB+ and BAEC merging, this amount will be negative at the other side. But it is up to you.

My guess is that for 6 months the combine my avios link will have some 'technical' issues and it will not work at all...

It says you must use them with Iberia Plus, not Iberia - they are two very different things...

Just booked my flights from TLV-JFK round trip in J for a total of 110K avios!! had an extra 22K in my account already so it worked out great for me.
Such a great deal, paid just 300$ in taxes and right around passover (Jewish holidays here in Israel), the flight in Y would have costed 1200$ easily, J probably 3000$.

Hei guys,
anyone has suggestions about how to use a residual amount of miles, such as 5K? Any way to burn them ?

Booked MAD-SCL//GIG-MAD in Business Class for a total outlay of about 390 including the SDR-MAD flights. Very happy.

New to Iberia, avios, and the wonderful iberia website. HAving sent in the documentation they required, I am still waiting for my avios to show up, but as I am researching potential flights, I have a question. My first choice of booking is an SFO-JFK flight, but when I put in just the one way, is says no connections found, however if I try to book a round trip, lots of availability is showing up. Is there a way to get around this, or do all avios bookings have to be round trip?

In my case, I spend only few minutes to spend it to book a award ticket in Biz to Johannesburg for next year. 85000 avios in total.

Looks like all availability out of Chicago has dried up over night.

Inevitable there would be a lot of people booking choice routes but flights are loaded daily. Just have to be adaptable.

Am in the same position. Wondering if you can pay part cash and put the residual towards the price? Would you get avios for the cash element I don't know.

Award flights on partner airlines have to be round trip. But you can book oneway IB and BA flights.

On Iberia operated flights you can pay using Avios + Money. On Y class, is usually good value.
