For those of you that collect British Airways Miles, they are keen to get you to redeem them and are offering routes for only 50% of the usual miles needed. I guess this is because planes are emptier with the current crisis. I did read that their business class has been up to 8% lower (which I guess is a lot of seats empty!)
This is what the email I got from the BA Executive Club said:
“Our best-ever reward flight offer is happening now. We’ve reduced the BA Miles needed for round trip reward flights, in all cabins, to all destinations worldwide, by 50%. If you’ve been dreaming about going somewhere really special, now’s the time to book. But hurry. Book before midnight GMT on 28 November 2008, or they’ll go without you. We can’t wait to welcome you on board.”
