British Airway(BA) 换票的一点tips

前一阵子运通有个活动,银行转点到BA额外赠送50%,没有忍住诱惑,从招行转了BA一共23万多分,共计给了47万miles里程。现在正在琢磨怎么用+_+||
寰宇一家的机票怎么查,这个网上都有,一搜就知道,主要用AA,Qantas,BA依次查询。有的不是特别清楚。比如S7这个航空就感觉很神秘。感觉有一些东西说的人不是很多,尽管有些什么护士医生、博士校长之类的说了很多,我也要再写一下。

TIP1.5 兑换表格

  • TIP2

有一些航司不是寰宇一家的,但是BA可以换的,根据我在网上找到的一些消息,有如下航司:
Alaska Airline 阿拉斯加航空(AA免票查询页面可查)
Aer lingus 爱尔兰航空(UA免票查询页面可查,可能要电话BA客服出票)
Aer lingus(EI)有BOS-DUB的跨大西洋航班,距离2993miles,用12500英航里程可以兑换。是我见过的最便宜的跨大西洋航线
Niki Air (BA自己可查,似乎也可兑)
Meridiana(查了一下, 他家好像可以直接和BA,IB互转Avios,网上有说能电话客服换票的,但是他是一个意大利的航空公司??,反正貌似我们一般用不到)

  • TIP3

理论上有的时候分段换比直接换要便宜,比如说3000miles以内用12500兑换,7000miles+要50000里程兑换。

  • TIP4

LAX-TYO 25000里程可换经济舱,
美西-HNL(夏威夷)12500里程,
上面说的BOS-DUB的跨大西洋航班,用12500英航里程,电话兑换,要求客服免去电话换票费,

Off-Peak Boston, New York, or Chicago to Madrid for 17,000 Avios (Iberia),$128 fee

Santiago/lima(seasonal)- eastern island 基本没票,说了白说,可以在LATAM查
Berlin to Tel Aviv for 10,000 Avios (airberlin)
总之,可能还有很多别的,发挥自己想象力,在ow航线图(link)查去吧

  • TIP5

如果在lhr中转,按照原来直飞距离计算???来自https://upgradedpoints.com/how-to-redeem-british-airways-points-avios-for-max-value/#2-Lie-Flat-First-New-York-to-San-Francisco-or-Los-Angeles-for-500000-Avios-American
看了半天才明白,就是比如EDI-london-Paris 都是英航的飞机,就是8k(offpeak)/9k(peak)+$55 中间在London停几天都行,搜索票的时候输入EDI-PAR,然后选择I want to break my journey and choose my stopovers,在London中转就行了。
反正就是比较便宜,貌似只有欧洲航班才有这个优惠。
Hot Tip: As long as you earn Avios in the past 12 months, award flights on British Airways within Europe qualify for Award Flight Saver, which is a flat fee in lieu of other taxes and surcharges. Award Flight Saver is automatically applied on qualifying itineraries.

Multi-Carrier Award Flights(总之这个规则就是放屁,所有的都应该分开订就对了

更新一下,又想了一下,这个规则也不是完全没有意义,总之如果有特定需求想要订长途多段票之类的,用这个规则可以考虑一下,虽然不能说特别号,但是如果有需求,可以考虑一下吖。
Multi-carrier means a combination of 2 airlines on a single ticket, and these awards have their own chart.
These awards are expensive, and you’ll most likely do better by booking separate airlines on separate tickets.
The multi-carrier Avios price is the same regardless of connections, one-way, or round-trip: only total distance matters. However, taxes, fees, and carrier charges vary widely, so beware!

Multi-Carrier Award Flights
Miles in your journey Avios for economy
0–1,500 30,000 + taxes, fees, and carrier charges
1,501–4,000 35,000 + taxes, fees, and carrier charges
4,001–9,000 60,000 + taxes, fees, and carrier charges
9,001–10,000 70,000 + taxes, fees, and carrier charges
10,001–14,000 90,000 + taxes, fees, and carrier charges
14,001–20,000 100,000 + taxes, fees, and carrier charges
20,001–25,000 120,000 + taxes, fees, and carrier charges
25,001–35,000 140,000 + taxes, fees, and carrier charges
35,001–50,000 160,000 + taxes, fees, and carrier charges

In general, premium economy is 1.5 times the economy price. Business is 2 times economy, and first class is 3 times economy.

一句话:长段到London(也许,或者其他UK,Spain城市也行),然后再London到某地方短距离航线,就收长段的点数。
来自flyertalk
UK and Mainland Spain domestic feeder flights
When pricing long haul redemptions, domestic connections within the UK and Mainland Spain are included in the fare. Taxes, fees, and surcharges associated with these domestic sectors are added to the overall fare however.
Using JFK-LHR-GLA as an example, since the domestic feeder is included in the cost of the international sector to London. The peak time base price is 20,000 Avios (per Zone 5, JFK-LHR) plus taxes, fees, and surcharges. While domestic feeder flights are free, they are still subject to normal redemption availablility conditions. So to include a feeder flight, there must be X class availablility (and/or V class for Gold members) for that flight as well availability on the corresponding international flight.
BA.com is known to be a bit prickly when it comes to displaying domestic feeder availability so if you find it is not offering domestic connections or if the connection timing is sub-optimal, calling your local BAEC service centre does often pay dividends. Some members have reported BA has bolted on domestic feeder flights on an existing London originating ticket.

里程升舱规则是个大坑,似乎全价票才能用BA的规则消耗里程升舱

  • TIP10

总之,BA就是适合出短途,亚洲万里通/ANA里程就适合出长途多段票,各有各的好。

  • TIP11

很多地方都说到,BA的网站查票系统有的时候不准,有的时候网站有,实际没有,有的时候网站没有,实际有。
