Last year, I wrote about how US Airways were now temporarily not bookable on the British Airways website, due to a known issue since US Airways recently aligned their fare codes with American Airlines. However, the good news is that you can once again book US Airways awards through the British Airways website.

With the British Airways devaluation coming April 28, now is a great time to book long-haul international First and Business Class awards, before BA drastically increases the award chart for partner premium cabin awards.

As a reminder, you can boost your British Airways avios balance with the British Airways Visawhich is offering 50,000 bonus avios after spending $2,000 within the first three months, and through spending, since you earn a solid 1.25 avios per dollar base earning, compared to most airline co-branded cards where you only earn 1 mile per dollar. This card also offers a companion ticket once you reach $30,000 in spending in a calendar year, and is currently waiving the annual fee for the first year.
