British Airways Partner Award Changes Now In Effect
Update 5/29/19: Keep in mind these new changes go into effect tomorrow, so book now if you want to beat the increases.
Earlier today we posted that British Airways would be making changes to partner awards on May 30th, 2019. Unfortunately they didn’t give specifics regarding what those changes would actually be. Seat 31B found out that the changes had been programmed into BA computer systems for booking agents and was able to work out changes based on answers to questions. Keep in mind this hasn’t been officially confirmed yet. The main news is as follows:
- 0-650 miles: 6,000 Avios (previously 4,500 points)
- 651-1,150 miles: 9,000 Avios (previously 7,500 points)
- 1,151 miles-2,000 miles: 11,000 Avios (previously 10,000 points)
- 2,001 miles-3,000 miles: 13,000 Avios (previously 12,500 points)
We still don’t know about long haul pricing. I’d recommend reading the full Seat 31B post for more information.
