- Availability is based on route demandBy 24 Febuary 2014
I've redeemed BA miles for First and Business flights to India, USA and Japan. Availability can be very limited for certain popular long-haul destinations where BA can sell the seat for cash (e.g. California, South Africa, Australia). The key is to be flexible with you travel destination and dates, and you can have a great experience. You can't really expect BA to give away a seat worth £5k for Tesco points worth a tenth of that if they think they can sell it?
- Spending AviosBy Joew21 Febuary 2014aged 55 to 64Male
I go every year to the USA Business with a companion ticket as well with Amex. There is a game to be played, book early (at least 6 months) and be flexible I'm off to Australia next year. NEVER any flights available to there so I will book Business to Singapore and back with Avios and pay for a separate flight to OzDate used : 20/02/2014
- Always availabilityBy 1Quaintbabe18 Febuary 2014aged 55 to 64Female
Have to disagree with panosx and Unhappytraveller. Have been using Avios for many years. My daughter lives in Barcelona and I have no trouble booking reward flights to visit her. We also have a Family Account which enables her to use my points and she comes back to the UK 3 times a year, again with no problem in getting reward flights to suit, even when coming home for Christmas/New Year. Can only imagine that perhaps those that have difficulty finding flights are not using the search availability to its fullest extent.Date used : 05/02/2014
- Flights are available!By DancingQueen10 Febuary 2014aged 45 to 54Female
Went to Vegas last July business class return and have just come back from a weekend in berlin using reward flight saver. In January when the sale was on found return flights to nice in august for £1pp but unfortunately couldn't book them due to work Am now looking at a trip to Moscow and once again there are loads of flights to chose from for just £35 return I found the long haul flights available if you book a year in advance and European flights there are loads available all the time. It has been a fantastic scheme!Date used : 31/01/2014
- Very Easy and usefulBy Cinimod07 Febuary 2014aged 35 to 44Male
The process to do this was very easy, simply enter the number of vouchers and then enter your BA membership number... In a short while the air miles are added to your account - job done.Date used : 07/02/2014
- Ridiculous Offer - No Availability on BABy panosx06 Febuary 2014aged 45 to 54Male

- NO BUSINESS/FIRST FLIGHTS AVAILABLEBy Unhappytraveller05 Febuary 2014aged 45 to 54Female
I totally agree with previous commentator, it is getting impossible to get the flights. British Airways are constantly revamping the executive club site and offering Avios for sale, but there is nothing to buy! It is like buying Marks and Spencer vouchers, but all they have left in the shop are ladies knickers! Flights used to be easier to get, but there is almost nothing available. I also have been trying to get flights home from LAX for months but nothing available in first or business. Other destinations equally as impossible and no one at British Airways has any idea when they are going to be available.Date used : 05/02/2014
- I find flights?By Jaydogz05 Febuary 2014aged 35 to 44
Disagree, this year BA Avios are taking 9 to Milan for half term, 5 of us to Barcelona in August and 5 again to Miami over Christmas
- BA - poor avaIlability using Avios!By Louisella05 Febuary 2014aged 55 to 64Female
We have used Avios/BA miles for years and have found it wonderful but in the last few years, it has become almost impossible to book long haul flights unless you book almost a year in advance and even then it is doubtful you will get flights to where you want to go, when you want to go and certainly not in business class. I agree BA need to review this urgently or there is no point in customers avidly collecting Avios points.Date used : 05/02/2014
- Too hard to get seatsBy GoldExec05 Febuary 2014aged 55 to 64Male
I agree with others. I have been looking for Business Class seats to Miami in April for 8 months and nothing has come available. What is the point of building Avios points if you can't use them. Having held a Gold Executive Club for over 20 years, all was great before Avios was created.
- Lack of flightsBy royw05 Febuary 2014aged 45 to 54Male
I would back any other comments on the lack of availability of flights specifically during school holidays, you need to be checking on a constant basis to get a flight, to be fair i finally got flights to and from san fran for whole family going economy and returning business but i was checking on daily basis. Additionally i have got a hire car for 20 days for 80k miles so all good but If i could convert airmiles to club points i would happily give my 400k plus miles away.Date used : 04/01/2014
- Availability of flight exchanges IS RUBBISH!By Loosehead03 Febuary 2014aged 55 to 64Male
For several years now its been impossible to get a Saturday to Saturday return flight. If you're lucky, you can travel out Wednesday or Thursday before, and return on the Sunday or Monday after, adding nearly a week to the hotel costs. I pay a premium on the Amex card to get the companion voucher, gear my purchases around acquiring Avios, and then can't use them. I don't see why Avios flyers should be penalised, when we've done everything BA asks us to do, and I certainly don't see why Companion Voucher holders should be penalised at all. If there's seats available in the class selected, they should be available to Avios users. We are known as Frequent Flyers after all.Date used : 03/02/2014
- BA This is not FAIR PLAYBy HappyGuy31 January 2014aged 45 to 54Male
To-date I have accrued 182K Avios points for use on a flight to Los Angeles in FIRST class ( or at least Business ). However, upon checking availability, there was only the following flights available in the WHOLE year (2014) February 1 Return only (Business) March1 x Return only (1st) May1 x Dept (1st) How can anyone possibly book a return flight using AVIOS given the lack of availability as highlighted above? Very Unhappy!, Please explain to me why you ( BA ) encourage people to collect AVIOS, but then offer little or NO Flights for me to actually book, this is not FAIR PLAY, and is totally unfair to your loyal customers. BA's response, they deem this as acceptable flight availabilityDate used : 31/01/2014
- Clubcard Points can be helpfulBy 31 January 2014aged 25 to 34Male
Like some other comments listed i am also finding that to get Rewards seats is getting harder. One point i would like to comment is that on European flights you can get some very good deals but not all the time is it a good idea to use your Rewards Points on long haul flights as most of the time it is cheaper to pay the normal fare as the tax is cheaper and and the cost of the flights is very much cheaper.Date used : 31/01/2014
- Wait for the Bonus converting offersBy Drew31 January 2014aged 25 to 34Male
This is the only thing I spend clubcard points on but my advice is to wait for a bonus transfer period. Once you have points, best to use them on short haul EU flights. You get the best availability, and its never more than £35 return for all over Europe. Best availability is usually in the week running up to when you want to fly and they want to fill up quiet flights.
- Brilliant rewardBy Oliver29 January 2014aged 25 to 34Male
I have only just started collecting avios via my clubcard and the offer is amazing, I don't have to do anything as my clubcard points are automatically converted into avios into my account. In regards to finding reward seats I'm finding seats all the time depends on route and date of travel of course but I don't seem to have any problems.Date used : 29/01/2014
- BA reward flightsBy Esko27 January 2014aged 35 to 44Male
I agree with Eliza, so difficult to find availabe reward flight. I have collected over 220,000 avios and 2 companion vouchers but no reward flights available. Also recently I traveled to China on WTP (T class) and wanted to upgrade with avios, and again no seats available to upgrade, even there were more than 7 seats in club world available on the flight.Date used : 27/01/2014
- BA reward flightsBy Eliza17 January 2014aged 65 or overFemale
I avidly collect avios points to use so that we can fly to visit friends in far off places.Over the past few years we have been lucky and managed to get the seats we have wanted on these long haul flights, but I have noticed this year that they are becoming few and far between. Is this due to BA issuing fewer reward seats? They seem to be using their partner airlines, where our Amex voucher cannot be used, as it has to be purely a BA flight.This seems very unfair after so much time, money and loyalty spent in collecting these avios points.Date used : 17/01/2014
- Useful, but you need to be flexibleBy Marky14 January 2014
If you are not constrained when you can travel and can book long in advance then BA Avios points are useful. I recently used 120,000 points for 2 return flights to Bangkok, but remember the extortionate UK air taxes have to be paid - in my case over £700!
- USE THEM A LOTBy AUBIE13 January 2014aged 65 or overFemale

Very disappointed in Avios points: so few places are reserved for passengers who wish to take advantage of these points that they are practically worthless. I have tried booking journeys as much as 9 months in advance, always to get the message that no places are available, so that I end up by paying full fare. It is much the same with the package holidays advertised. I have now opted out.Date used : 27/11/2013

have booked 2 flights to calgary Canada in club world for next year, so with companion ticket from Amex it cost me 80,000 avios and £1,400 for both returns which if booked direct total cost would have been £11,000 so personally I think good value all round, happy days
- Avios Executive ClubBy Caterina31 October 2013aged 45 to 54Female
Fantastic reward. Use points for flight in business class to Rome three times a year have only had to pay a small amount or nothing towards the flights. Business lounge at Heathrow well worth a visit.
- No BA Avios PointsBy Jaay13 October 2013
I have set up my account to convert club card points to BA Avios points but no points have shown up in my BA account. This is not good enough.
- That was quick & easyBy JohnnyBoy09 October 2013aged 45 to 54Male
Club card help line sorted out my details so card was registered to my correct address with one short phone call. Converted outstanding vouchers to BA Exec Club Avios points that night, in my BA Exec account next day, very impressed with speed and helpfulness of helpline and the speedy conversion of vouchers.

Clear communication throughout. I made a mistake as my addresses on Tesco and BA didn't tally (didn't update one of them). Received email warning me of this problem in less than 24 hours. A couple of calls later, I got my Avios points in around 4 days. Excellent..

Have the dilemma of whether to convert to Virgin or BA! Shame BA do not often do bonus avios. Virgin currently have 30% extra, so will get over 13,000! Come on BA, do more bonus avios.

I have exchanged my points on the 2nd August and still have not got the Avios on my account. Very disappointed with the service!!!
- BA always a great airline ...By Windsoruk07 September 2013aged 55 to 64Male
Have to say found the exchange of tokens for Avios works seamlessly. Enjoyed plenty of good deals through this system. Not sure which airline daveandstef flew with ..... BA service same as it has ever been. Never been charged for drinks or seat reservation (unless you voluntarily pay in advance of the 24 hour check in window) and always had quality meals. The loyalty system of BA Executive Club one of the best I have come across.Date used : 09/09/2013
- Was once a good airline before it went budgetBy daveandstef31 August 2013aged 25 to 34Male
I remember travelling with BA just 5 or so years ago and it was great. They took pride in the fact that there were no added extra charges. You got treated like you should, given a meal on all flights etc. Now they have just recently announced that they are charging for bags. Thats after charging to reserve your seat, taking away the complimentary meals and getting rid of the loyalty system that was worth saving for. They have become a budget airline which is a shame. I hope Tesco will think about adding other proper full service airlines to their Clubcard rewards.Date used : 18/09/2013

- Ponts quickly add upBy Shep23 July 2013aged 25 to 34Male
Overall this is a good way to boost your avios miles. We have been able to use these for flights to Barbados, Gibraltar and Cyprus. Currently saving for our next lot of flights. Long haul not to good, you end up paying virtually the full fare in taxes, but short haul these are excellent value. Occasionally BA do a points boost, giving an extra 400 points per £2.50.Date used : 20/07/2013

I have set my Clubcard account up to auto transfer to my BA Avios account. I gave my BA Exec number as my account number.

- Tesco vouchers for BA AviosBy DaisyBCN13 July 2013aged 45 to 54Male
First off nice to see Tesco allowing the negative comments on this issue. I have been exchanging my club card vouchers for a few years now into my BA exc club account. I started off by having the vouchers delivered to home then logging in and converting them myself. After a while I found I could have this done by Tesco so opted for that. Then I noticed that just after my club card points had been converted there seemed to be a special offer of extra points I always missed out on so went back to having them delivered to home. This time i converted just the minimum £5 required to get the 1,200 avios and the1,000 bonus and had no problems. I know we all just tick the T&C box as who has the time to read through 15 pages of small print. This time I was lucky but will scan the offers a lot more closly in future.Date used : 15/06/2013

- BONUS OFFERBy Milton13 June 2013aged 55 to 64Male
I thought the terms of the offer were clear and in any case, if you had converted Clubcard vouchers into BRITISH AIRWAYS Avios within the last 12 months, then the thing to do was open an Avios account directly with Avios (assuming you didn't have one) and have the Avios and bonus deposited in there. Once they arrive in the direct Avios account, you can then merge them back into your BA Avios account.Date used : 13/06/2013
- Bonus offerBy bonus11 June 2013aged 55 to 64Female
Luckily I read the reviews before ordering! i would have made the same mistake. Come on BA we expect better of you. Please state clearly what the offer is in the information and not just in the terms and conditions. I look forward to receiving my bonus points and checked and ascertained that i do qualify. My lack of confidence still means that i will only believe it when I see it in my account.Date used : 11/06/2014

- Inadequate information by BABy Khantoo29 May 2013
BA offer of 1000 miles ..and then nothing in the Tesco website. Also reading the other comments looks like there was something the fine print. Very disappointed.
- The "bonus offer" is nothing short of a conBy Unhappy128 May 2013aged 45 to 54Female
I also exchanged after the promotional email from BA promising "we're offering you 1,000 bonus Avios if you exchange £5 or more in Clubcard vouchers by 30 June 2013." Only after wondering why I didn't get the bonus did I check back and read the miniscule small print "1,000 Avios bonus offer is open to customers who have not previously exchanged Clubcard vouchers for Avios." The whole promotion was based around this bonus, so if these kinds of terms were attached to it they should have been clearly annotated at the place that the bonus was made. This is the third time I've felt scammed by BA so I'm losing my trust in them completely - I hope others will read these posts and realise how limited this bonus offer actually is.Date used : 23/05/2013
- No loyaltyBy Cluckyducky7227 May 2013aged 35 to 44Female
Yet again BA are missing trick only allowing the bonus for "new converters! There is just loyalty anymore. We have been members of the BA scheme for many years and always transfer our clubcard vouchers into airmiles with them. This is really frustrating and not good business on BA's part. I am very temted to go over to Virgin as we belong to their loyalty program as well and they are much fairer and transparent...I think BA are loosing it as far as their customers are concerned.Date used : 27/05/2013
- The small printBy 25 May 2013aged 65 or overMale
I've just read the T&Cs 'buried' on the BA Executive Club website. (Scroll down the Executive Club Offers page to 'Holiday sooner with 1,000 bonus Avios', then open View Details and then Terms & Conditions.) It says: "Customers who have exchanged Clubcard vouchers since 29 April 2012 are not eligible for the bonus but will earn standard Avios." So, it's when you last exchanged vouchers that counts. This should definitely be made clearer.Date used : 25/05/2013
- BA Executive Club bonus AviosBy KintburyCook23 May 2013aged 45 to 54Female
BA have emailed offering 1000 bonus miles to Executive Club members if a minimum of £5 of vouchers are exchanged for Avios by 30 June. As noted by another reviewer, there's no mention of this on Tesco's website. It would be helpful if there was someway of including this (unless this is being done independently of Tesco by BA, of course, in which case I doubt it'll be added). Anyway, I've exchanged (which was easy to do) and now will hope for the best!Date used : 23/05/2013
- To Anna - BA extra AviosBy Kelbel22 May 2013aged 35 to 44Female
I also got the email from BA regarding the extra 1000 avios. However, I hope you are new to this otherwise you won't receive those extra air miles. Seeing your review made me go back and read the small print in the BA email, and it says that this promotion is only applicable to members that have not previously exchanged vouchers for Avios before. I'm pretty cross that this isn't made more clear in the large advert section of the email, and quite annoyed that they've even bothered to send it to me - I'm sure it wouldn't take much effort for them to see I regularly exchange my Tesco vouchers for Avios. On the whole I do love being able to get Avios points this way, but on this occasion, I do think this email is very misleading.Date used : 22/05/2013

As others have said, this can be a great scheme if you take the time to understand it. Much better value for short haul, where BA throw in connections from the regions to LHR for free, and offer discounted taxes. If you're looking for a free long haul flight, you might get it, but the taxes and fees mean that you'll not make the saving that perhaps you were expecting.Date used : 01/05/2013

My wife and I have travelled every year for the last 5 years to Las Vegas First Class using Avios. We pay the taxes only. These flights if paying full price would be £26K. We couldnt afford anything like that. With Avios it is possible and an experience of a lifetime. I will keep on collecting as long as they are on offer. The British Airways Executive Club customer service desk will help you find Avios seats if you cant find them on the website. Very helpfull.Date used : 03/04/2013
- To LynnBy AnnieN19 May 2013
You must be looking in the wrong place(s). Your BA Executive Club account will show your current available Avios balance, and all the transactions on the account over at least a couple of years. Your e-ticket receipt or other booking correspondence should also show the number of Avios redeemed and cash spent for a particular flight. Or did you mean to review "general" Avios rather than BA Exec Club? - in which case the info should be somewhere in your Avios account. An excellent scheme, but you do have to be prepared to put a bit of work and forward planning into finding reward seats to popular destinations, and to accept that there will be very few seats made available for the most popular. After all, it is basically an exercise in ensuring adequate take-up of seats, but you can take advantage of it if you try.

- Late BA bookings with AviosBy Spiral14 May 2013aged 55 to 64Male
Planning ahead can sometimes pay off but not always. On several occasions I have tried to book flights well in advance, say six months, only to find no availability when I want to fly. Twice this year however I have found a range of good flight options at the last minute. Don't give up if what you want is not available in advance, keep trying. In my view exchanging Clubcard points for Avios to use on short haul European BA flights is tremendous value, better than any other use.Date used : 12/01/2013
- Plan your trip early and understand the scheme.By Katy13 May 2013aged 45 to 54Female
The whole idea of Airmiles / Avios was for the Airline to fill seats that it didn't expect to fill. To expect to be able to book whatever you like is unrealistic. We have flown to New York purchasing Premium Economy tickets for £580.00 cash (return) in a Sale and upgraded them to Business class for Only 25,00 Avios. Business class tickets can cost £4,000.00 each! We have also managed to fly to Milan for only 9,000 Avios, and you can use them with most other airlines that are in alliance with B.A. for example Finnair, Iberia, Cathay Pacific, American Airlines, making it possible to book some unusual flights. Yes, taxes and charges on long-haul flights can add up, but nothing is 'Free' We have also redeemed for Hotels and Car -hire at good rates. Plan your travel, book early and get what you want...... usually!Date used : 30/04/2013

- Best Frequent Flyer ProgramBy cyanfirefly13 May 2013aged 35 to 44Female
I cannot recommend the British Airways Executive Club enough. My husband and I travel regularly, so are members of frequent flyer programs on multiple airlines. The BA one is pretty much the only one that we have gotten good value for money out of. The miles on one international flight are enough to give you one European return flight, and you only have to pay a small administrative fee in the region of 30GBP. You do not have to pay any airport taxes, unlike with other airlines' frequent flyer programs (which is usually the bulk cost of the ticket). Reward flight availability is usually good. So very happy we can collect further Avios using our ClubCard vouchers!Date used : 13/05/2013
- An excellent Exchange - IF you know how to use it!By withabix13 May 2013aged 35 to 44Male
People moan about Avios and BA Avios because they don't know how to use them. Availability of Reward flights is limited AND you have to plan ahead - but that is because the BA Avios scheme is SO POPULAR. You need to be flexible on dates and sometimes on destination. Tip: Don't waste your Avios on Economy flights. Save them up for Business Class, First Class or upgrades. Best used for long haul.Date used : 13/05/2013

If you ever tried to spend your Avios, you may know that even if ticket are available for a destination of your choice, you most likely cannot buy them using your Avios- they are simply not be available for this kind of payment. Avios can be of some use (but only in some cases) if you wish to upgrade your ticket - in this case you may save some money on high cost tickets or if you are prepared to go to some other destinations offered by British Airways - however, remember you will still need to pay a high Tax incorporated in the cost of the ticket, which may make use of Avios senseless.Date used : 12/05/2013
