If you must earn Avios, I think the other remaining option (such as it is) is VY via Barcelona. Put the Avios in an IB account and then transfer them to BA. I've been disappointed by RJ hard product...

I dunno, within two clicks from the home page you have access to telephone, email, chat via WhatsApp, Alexa, Google Assistant, Twitter and Facebook contact details. What could you possibly need that...

I would be surprised if they did that, though these are strange times. The refunded two NR tickets for me without asking in December, even though they were very explicit about the fact you only get...

Seriously the Icon has to be the worst airline card ever. Plata is pretty much meaningless, no lounge access, no upgrades, just a few extra Avios that you can earn. The worst part is that the card...

I wish! Sadly you can't get from JMK to BCN on Aegean. Well, not unless you fancy a 16-hour journey over two days. That 3AM Vueling flight is literally the best option (and I'm not happy about it).

It looks to be more of a facelift than anything else? No interior shots make me think maybe they didn't improve that dismal holding pen where you spend 3-4 hours waiting for your delayed 2:50AM VY...

I seem to recall being able to see the Amadeus number when you pull up the reservation on the IB site with the 5-character code.

If the goal is to do LIS-BCN and back in a day, you can do that on VY. If you're after segments, not sure.

If you are in Madagascar it's likely the reason they have blocked them. Certain countries have statistically high rates of fraud with things like this and credit cards, and it isn't unusual for them...

Since most of my IB short-haul flights are on the shuttle, I'm dealing with slight shock at seeing silverware and a tablecloth, not to mention that much food instead of the slice of fuet and two...

Yeah same here. They know the rules and will generally follow them as applicable. It may take a while to get a response, but messing up a 500K expiry in the first place, and then messing up again by...

I really hope that isn't the case. PA is incredibly convenient, especially for the fast and easy parking/checkin/boarding process. Back before they jacked up the redemption rate, you could buy PA J...

If you make a habit of it they will eventually contact you, but for one flight I can't imagine any problem.

With the new lower thresholds that's almost to *G for 200 clams. If only I weren't terrified to get on a plane still.

Are they offering business class on Greek flights now? ATH-JMK has been Y-only for years. Or are they selling a Y seat with a business fare?

It's not just A3, prompted by this thread I did a few searches for October and all the *A airlines are coming up very cheap. Like 300-ish € return BCN-ATH. That's 8000 tier miles if you choose your...

Also UA, LX P fares. Somehow though, the same P fare on AC earns 200%, so I've been flying them a lot more lately. Luckily the Z fare on those tickets is usually not much more. But it's a lesson I...

BA just announced a year-long status extension today, along with lowered tier threshold for next year. IB, to absolutely no one's surprise, has had nothing to say so far.

I really don't think they care, either of them. IAG now have a monopoly in Spain and as such neither you nor I make any difference at all to them. I came to OW as a refugee from BMI after the last...
