Using British Airways Avios to Book Airfare Deal Destinations from Los Angeles


Reader Sandeep was fascinated at my recent post on How I Booked a 2 Night Resort Hotel in Cabo with Flights and a Rental Car for Under $360. He wanted β€œto see a post for possible deal destinations out of LAX using Avios. 15k R/T to Cabo was definitely a new find for me. Any other good ones other than Hawaii, Vegas, and Chicago?”

    I just booked my first Avios ticket last week! From NorCal its only 4,500 each way to SEA (and PDX). Opens up a whole new world of possibilities with partner Alaska Airlines πŸ™‚

  3. Awesome! Thank you for the post! Very insightful!

  4. Great information! How do I do the same out of SFO?

  5. I received 100k avios miles almost by accident after opening a new credit card. The only place I fly to these days is Medellin, Colombia. I noticed this thread because I live near LAX. Can anyone point out to me a way to use these miles to go there? I know AA flies to Miami, so maybe that would work.
