Life has given us all a few (or perhaps a lot of) lemons over the last couple of weeks. The entire TPG staff has been hard at work not only reporting everything you need to know about COVID-19 but also thinking about how we can take those lemons and turn them into lemonade for you, our readers.
This led us to develop our new #TPGLemonade sessions: a series of 15-minute overview trainings on one loyalty program at a time.
Today’s session covers the British Airways Avios.
- 1:25 – How to earn Avios
- 4:10 – How to redeem Avios
- 5:40 – Distance-based pricing
- 5:54 – Priced per segment
- 6:22 – Taxes and surcharges (YQ)
- 6:57 – Redemption examples
- 13:00 – Points and cash booking
- 14:12 – Avoid having multiple airline partners
- 14:40 – Fifth-freedom routes
