    I just booked business class Iberia Puente Aereo MAD-BCN for 6500 avios + 17€, and I noticed that you can get economy for 3375 avios + 13.5€. This is the cheapest avios redemption I have seen. I booked on Iberia website. With the 50% Amex transfer bonus to BA in May, avios is turning out to be ridiculously cheap for short haul.

    Are there cheaper segments out there?

    For July and August, Iberia is offering 25% discounts when you redeem on Iberia on certain routes (for example, MAD-ORY doesn't work since it's not on the list below).

    Also you can't get this through BA Avios, only IB Avios. Which really underscores the reason why anyone with a BA account should sign up for IB now since you need to wait 90 days before you can transfer between the 2.
