British Airways have added 50,000 extra award seats in Club World for a limited period of time. This means there is more availability to redeem your Executive Club Avios for an award flight or flight upgrade.
There are limitations both on the destinations and travel period, however a wide range of places are available. As long as you have the Avios, you should be able to find something suitable.
Extra Award Seats
Bookings can be made on the British Airways web site from now through to 2 December 2018. The travel period runs from 16 December 2018 through to 31 March 2019.
In my opinion, the best use of Avios is for flight upgrades. Therefore, booking World Traveller Plus on a flight which has Club World award seats available is what to do. Once you book your ticket, you then upgrade it with Avios to the next cabin class.
The extra seats are available on flights between London Gatwick and Fort Lauderdale, Tampa, Orlando, Las Vegas, San Jose (Costa Rica), New York JFK and Mauritius. London Heathrow has a more extensive list of destinations.
These are Abuja, Accra, Amman, Atlanta, Austin, Bahrain, Baltimore, Bangalore, Beijing, Beirut, Boston, Buenos Aires, Cairo, Calgary, Cape Town, Chicago, Dallas, Denver, Dubai, Durban, Houston, Jeddah, Johannesburg, Kuala Lumpur, Kuwait, Lagos, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Mexico City, Miami, Montreal, Moscow, Nairobi, Nashville, New Orleans, New York (JFK), New York (EWR), Philadelphia, Phoenix, Rio de Janeiro, Riyadh, San Diego, San Francisco, San Jose, Santiago, Sao Paulo, Seattle, Seoul, Seychelles, Shanghai, Singapore, Tel Aviv, Tokyo (NRT), Toronto, Vancouver and Washington.
You can see from the list above that most of the network is included. I have often used Avios in the traditionally quieter winter period to fly up front for less, and I think this is an excellent thing.
