Half-Priced OpenSkies Mileage Redemption

British Airways is offering half-priced redemption on OpenSkies between New York-JFK and Paris-Orly for awards booked by August 22 for travel through October 15.

It’s 50,000 British Airways Miles round-trip business class or 37,500 BA Miles round-trip in Prem+. If you’re like me, you get your BA miles by transferring Diners Club points during 50% transfer bonus periods, which equates to 25,000 Club Rewards points ultimately scoring a business-like product (Prem+) for transatlantic travel. That’s what happens when you start a new airline and loads are understandably light.

So I’ll be looking at whether a weekend in Paris makes sense (I didn’t manage to arrange my schedule for the inaugural flights, alas).

In order to get the discounted pricing you need to book at ba.com and choose JFK and ORY airports.
