Airmiles flights
« on: September 10, 2011, 01:44:31 PM »
I had hoped to use my airmiles for flights to Dalaman, although I've never, ever found any 'free' flights.  However, as I'm a teacher and can only go away in school holidays this isn't unduly surprising.  Now though Airmiles is turning into Avios in a couple of months and they will be adding charges and taxes to the cost of the flights.  They seem remarkably reluctant to give figures but apparently it cost £65 in charges to fly to Izmir at the moment.  I don't suppose Dalaman will be cheaper.
Has anyone been able to use airmiles to get here?  I'd be interested to know. 
Airmiles used to be such a good deal.  I remember buying about 30 large bags of basmati rice from Sainsburys which paid for a few flights to Nice!

Airmiles used to be a great deal, we have used them to fly all over Europe and to America, usually in business or first class. However in recent years, despite still having 16,000 left we have not used any as flight availability is so restricted. Also you won't find any availability to Dalaman, Izmir or Antalya as, despite still showing on the airmiles website, BA no longer fly these routes.

Free return transfer from Dalaman given with all bookings for 10 days or over made via EnjoyKalkan. PM for more details.

alantj has hit the nail on the head....Airmiles (soon to be Avios) is owned by BA and if BA don't fly to your chosen destination you can forget free flights >:( They will give you "airmiles " back if you book throught them, but they don't offer the best value flights and as residents beyond the Watford Gap we have no chance of free flights with our 25,000 airmiles as BA pulled out of Manchester some time ago.
Better to keep your mouth shut and appear stupid than to open it and remove all doubt :)
