For a limited time British Airways is increasing the amount of Avios you can use to “buy down” the cost of a ticket.
Available to book from today until 17 May, you can take advantage of using your Avios to save from $22-$450 when you part pay for your flight using Avios. Travel to London and beyond on British Airways or American Airlines flights between 10 May-30 September 2016.
Avios Part Payment Options
As part of the promotion, the normal limited Avios buy down options have been expanded. You can use up to 15,000 Avios to save $225 on an economy ticket or 30,000 Avios to save $450 on a business class ticket.
You can find the full promotional terms of the Avios Part Payment special here.
This Avios buy down option can be combined with the $400 AARP discount, but cannot be combined with the 10% discount for Chase British Airways cardholders.

If you plan to credit your flights to American AAdvantage, you can earn up to a 25K bonus as well.
