    BA Avios 17th May 19 at 5:44 PM
    I became aware through another forum that Less money more Avios was being trialled on some routes, so a few days ago I logged in to my account to to find out which routes these would be applicable on.

    I was looking to book either istanbul or Sofia for 1st May 2020, so delighted to find that these routes were included,- so 24,000 Avios return and 1 taxes.

    Went on to book today, and suddenly the option has gone , and now a return is 35!
    Can anyone enlighten me. Is it a glitch on the site, or have they withdrawn this particular offer.
    Thanks

    Headforpoints has the explanations

    Though I cannot find the article that covers this recent change....
    This one may be relevant

    As maybe this one.

    Here's the AVIOS beginners guide
