    I flew from DUB to LGW on EI230 on an A320. This was the first leg of a tier point run/holiday I booked in the November 2014 ex-DUB sale – DUB-LGW-MCO-LAX-LHR-DUB. I paid EURO1344 for the flights, which worked out as just over £1000. The equivalent ex-UK flight was coming in at about ...

    I flew LHR to DUB on BA 838 in Club Europe on an A320. This was a positioning flight for a tier point run/holiday that I’d booked in the November ex-DUB sale. I’d booked it in Euro Traveller originally for £70 return but a few months before the flight I got offered a POUG of £50 and given ...

    I flew from BSL to LHR in ET on BA749 in an A320. This was the return leg of a flight booked 5 months earlier for 9,000 Avios and £35. I arrived at BSL at 18:00 and quickly found the BA check-in desks. There were separate lines for ET and CE and both were empty. I’d checked in on-line ...

    7.5

    I flew from LHR to BSL in EuroTraveller on BA 756 in an A319. I booked this flight 5 months in advance for 9,000 Avios and £35. Given that the flight was just a little over an hour, there seemed little point in forking out 18,000 Avios for a CE seat, particularly given the recent ...
