Get BA Silver equivalent in one return flight
Malaysia Airlines are doing promotion when you fly in Business or Business Suite Class from London. You need to book by 16 September 219 for travel until 30 July 2020.
For a limited time, you can earn Enrich Gold membership which is equivalent to OneWorld Saphhire and BA Silver. This means you would get lounge access even when travelling in economy. You will need to join at the basic level but it also applies if you are already Silver in Enrich.
If you are already an Enrich Gold member, you will get 50,000 Elite Miles to accelerate your status to the next tier. Complete the return journey to be eligible to one of these great rewards.
Malaysia do have a good business class product as well as the business/first hybrid Business Suite. They fly an A350 out of London, but the prices aren’t particularly cheap even in a sale. If you just want BA silver, there are lots of cheaper ways of doing it such as the Germany to US fares from yesterday or a Qatar flight to Asia.

Experience BA First from £1405
If you missed the recent BA companion sale or perhaps wanted to travel on your own, then this is a good opportunity to try BA First pretty cheaply, even if it is a short flight! The fare is to Tel Aviv from Inverness. Tel Aviv is fast becoming the in place to go for a short break with its beaches, sunshine and 5 hour flying time. Roving Reporter and Paul have both enjoyed their visits their recently. BA are operating a B777 as well as the A350 which has no First class. You can read my recent review of BA First class on the B777 here.
Prices from Inverness start at £1405, but you can also fly from London for £1503 in April 2020. If you have travel trouble finding the fares on BA, Expedia worked fine.

Accor hotels promotion – get the equivalent of €120 of points
Accor Hotels, which own luxury brands such as M Gallery, Sofitel, Raffles and Fairmont etc, has brought back its potentially generous promotion to earn 6,000 bonus Avios! There is a minimum 2-night stay and you will have to do this three times to get the full bonus. Unlike most hotel bonus promotions, it does count for any stays you have already booked. It is only applicable to new bookings.
To qualify you must book before 27 September via Accor and stay between 13 September – 19 January 2020.
You need to stay for 2 nights minimum each time to get the bonus. To get the maximum bonus you need 3 two nights stays. The points are awarded as follows
- Stay 1: 2-night 500 bonus points
- Stay 2: 2-night 2500 bonus points
- Stay 3: 2-night 3000 bonus points
6000 points is equivalent to €120 off an Accor stay but you could convert them into miles. Iberia is the best value at 1:1 but then you will need to have an Iberia Plus account and then transfer into BA which is not always as straightforward as it seems. BA is 2:1 so not as good value.
