July 4 Update: British Airways Long Haul Award sale, KLM Fall Seat Sale, Double Miles on Avianca LifeMiles transfers

BAEC award tickets at 75% of the regular cost, transfer bonus and more today!

News, Tips & Tricks
Aviosthe currency of British Airways Executive Club is offering a long haul award ticket redemption sale. The only issue is that it is for flights from the U.K. only. As Canadian's however we can kind of take advantage of this if you make one-way redemptions from Toronto or Vancouver (the only Canadian cities included in the sale). Your redemption from Canada to the U.K. would have to be at the full one way price but then your one-way redemption for the flight back from the U.K. can be booked at the sale rates, essentially you are getting the award ticket at 75% of the normal round-trip redemption rate. Flights need to be booked by July 13 for travel between Oct 1 and Feb 28, 2015. Find out more here.

In the bonus offers section check out the transfer bonus from Avianca LifeMiles who are famous for their 100% Bonus on buying miles. If you have taken advantage of that offer before now you can transfer those miles to friends or family and they'll receive double the miles. The cost of transfer miles is the same as when you buy miles at 1.5 cents plus taxes/fees which brings them to around 1.8 cents each. This is a good deal if you know that whomever you are transferring the miles to can and will use the miles in the next little while. If you don't have plans to redeem anytime soon then it may not be worth doing a transfer.

Air Canada will be upgrading their Vancouver to Tokyo Narita flights to Boeing 787 service as of December 15. Good news for those planning to travel on this route! (Source
