British Airways Executive Club announced changes to its Avios award charts back in back in late April (read more here).
The problem was that BA didn’t indicate or publish any of the changes in advance so that its Executive Club members could have made an informed decision before May 30th whether to use their Avios then or now (the change could have been drastic).
You can access BA here.
A FlyerTalk member KARFA published the following chart (access here) about the changes:
The changes are not drastic but it seems that BA is targeting short-haul awards that have higher percentage change in the number of Avios required redemptions than long-haul ones.
These changes are non-event and not drastic at all. It is always sad to see awards requiring more miles and I believe that BA should have nevertheless released list of these changes in advance.
I didn’t make any speculative bookings (600K+ Avios) but many burned down their balances in anticipation of these changes (wise move).
