They supposedly decided to leave OW and hook up with Delta due to the Chilean govt refusing the joint venture with AA. Why would they subsequently approve one with DL?

Booking HAV with Avios

BA.com doesn’t recognise HAV, either on a LHR/DUB-HAV or on a MIA-HAV basis. Is this just another IT glitch such as GYD & can be booked over the phone or is Cuba not actually bookable?

£550 extra to upgrade using Avios?

I’m looking at LHR-TLV in W for Jan. It’s pricing around £520 rtn. When I try “book and upgrade using Avios” it prices at £1055 plus the Avios. Is this right?
