  1. Hi

    I’m a bit confused, can you confirm my calculation:

    You said “With this promotion, you would need to purchase 24,000 Avios points which would net you a total of 31,200 Avios points. The cost per person would be $685 + taxes and fees for a cpm of $0.219”. I look at this and think, 21 cents per mile is expensive! But then I use Excel to divide $685.00 by 31,200 and get $0.0224 which really is 2¢ per mile.

    I guess my point here is to advocate for some kind of consistency when reporting cost per mile or point. It should be either $0.0219 or 2.19 cents but not $0.219.


  2. Don’t forget to add in the credit card points you get for the purchase. Use the BA Visa and that’s an additional 1,712 miles. It affects the true cost-per-mile.
