    Has anyone ever redeemed this route on Fri/Sat/Sun? I can't find anything in the New Year for the LHR/LGW-FCO route over a weekend. I need to position the shark family for our >1 JPY AZ PROMOJP tix. You know...

    Yes, I could use super-valuable Starmiles but I'd rather keep them for the TATL sectors (for which Avios is indisputably [​IMG] best in class [​IMG] )

    There's plenty of availability on most weekends in both business and economy, except mid-July to end-August.

    Not for April/May there isn't. Unless you're BA GE and they're opening the munificent award bucket for you.

    Update: Globaliser, I just logge in to Avios and you are right, there is availability now. Quite a lot, in fact.

    Nice when that happens... and these intra-EU BA redemptions are great value compared with the competition. Even Star aren't as good for this purpose.
