British Airways has
made significant changes to its Reward Flight Saver (RFS),
extending it to 100% of the airline’s route network – including
Club World (long-haul business class) and World Traveller Plus
(premium economy) for every long-haul flight.
Previously, RFS was only available in Club Europe
(short-haul business class), Euro Traveller (short-haul economy)
and World Traveller (long-haul economy) cabins.
RFS is exclusively available
on British Airways’ flights for the airline’s Executive Club
Members, offering them reward seats at a flat fee, plus a
fixed Avios amount.
Members can travel to and from Europe from as
little as £1 plus 18,500 Avios, or to a long-haul destination,
such as New York, from £100 plus 50,000 Avios.

Return Club World RFS flights are available from
as little as £350 plus 160,000 Avios, while return World Traveller
Plus RFS flights are available from £280 plus 85,000 Avios.
British Airways has also doubled the number of
long-haul destinations available with RFS, with 100% of its route
network now on offer to members, including destinations such as
New Orleans, Nashville, Austin, Sydney, Bermuda, Buenos Aires, and
St Kitts and Nevis.
As part of its premium proposition for customers,
the airline guarantees the following minimum number of Reward
Seats are available to book on every flight to and from London
Heathrow and London Gatwick:
– Eight in Euro/World Traveller;
– Two in World Traveller Plus; and
– Four in Club Europe/World.
RFS bookings are now also available for the first
to Executive Club Members based in the US.
Return flights are
available to London Heathrow and London Gatwick from as little as
$200 plus 50,000 in World Traveller, and $700 plus 160,000 Avios
in Club World.
“Offering more choice than ever, this is an
exciting development for our Executive Club programme and great
news for our Members. We know they value flexibility, so we’ve
also ensured plenty of opportunity to lower their cash spend by
using more Avios,” said Ian Romanis, Director of Retail and
Customer Relationship Management. “We listen to our Members’ feedback and continue
to heavily invest in our Executive Club in recognition of their
loyalty, offering as many options as possible for our customers to
travel the world affordably.”
Baggage is included with all Reward Flight Saver
bookings, starting from 23kg per person, and bookings can be changed or
cancelled for a fee of £35 per person.
Reward Flight Saver flights are available to any
British Airways Executive Club Member who has collected a minimum
of 1 Avios in the last 12 months.
