British Airways recently changed their award structure and created Avios. Today, I was able to make good use of my newly minted Avios points with a low cost award redemption.
At first I was skeptical that the change wouldn’t align with my use for the program. Afterall I did redeem British Airways miles for AA first class to Buenos Aires at a favorable rate with little fees.
How To Book

I posted that my waitlist spot cleared at the last minute for a seat on the OWMD flight. Since it was so late, the pricing on flights to get me there was rather high, around $350 for a one way coach ticket.
I searched for and found a great deal on an AA flight in coach using Avios points. For the one way flight I redeemed 7,500 Avios points and a couple of bucks in fees. What a deal!
Have you found any other good uses for Avios points?
