    Using BA Avios on partner airlines 7th Jan 18 at 10:43 AM
    Planning a trip to Thailand june/July 2019, when my daughter finishes her A levels.looking at the taxes BA charge, I could buy a cash ticket for not
    much more!

    Are there any partner airlines I could use BA Avios on to fly to Thailand., and where the taxes are lower. Don't mind if I have to start my journey from outside of the Uk. In fact, I Wouldn't mind a couple of nights in Madrid or Amsterdam, to start my holiday.

    I can see a list of one world partners, but don't know how to search for award availability.

    Finnair have regular flights from Helsinki to Bangkok but it's a popular route due to the lower taxes compared to the UK (especially for business class fares).

    I think they're the only Oneworld member apart from BA who fly direct to Thailand from Europe.

    I eventually found some for December,- so at least I know they do exist. I think it's just like you say, it' s a very popular route.

    I only use our Avios points to fly business class at the very least, last year we paid 690 each for business class flights from UK to Miami, never seen a good deal to fly economy using points.
