Furthermore, only premium classes are covered here, as we are Premium-Flights ;). We try to give you examples where you could combine your tier point run with a small get away.

2. Short haul business class return flights out of Luxembourg – 80 to 160 tier points.

British Airways flights out of Luxembourg a relatively cheap. We already covered this in the past with Business class flights Luxembourg to London for £150-£200.

With these flights you can earn 80 tier points for a business class return flight from Luxembourg to London on basically every month. Not so well known is the fact that many other destinations, with a stop over in London, are available relatively cheap too.

Those are giving you 160 tier points.

You have to search a little by yourself for destinations, but many around Europe are available for approximately £350. Below you have some examples of destinations available out of Luxembourg, earning you 160 tier points.  As mentioned before, this is for a business class return flight.

These destinations should always be available from Luxembourg:

  • Edinburgh

3. Short haul “plus” return flights out of London for 160 tier points

Some routes within Europe which are longer, the Short Haul + routes, you will earn 80 tier points each way, a total of 160 tier points for a return flight. The most interesting ones, considering the prices, are usually the following:


4. Flights to North America with a Oneworld partner from Dublin, London or another European city. With an extra stop in the US – up to 770 tier points

Oneworld partners often have very attractive sales out of Dublin, London or some other European cities to North America.  You should focus on Dublin and Madrid, as flights are available often for only 1400€ departing from one of these cities.

When you have a connecting flight from Europe via London to the US, you will receive a minimum of 40 tier points for each short-haul leg. 140 tier points for each long haul leg gives you a total of 360 tier points for the return flight.

If you manage to book flights with a stop over in the US, before reaching your final destination, adding a domestic first class flight will give you even more tier points.

For example, a transcontinental flight within the US as the route from New York to Los Angeles will earn you at least whooping 140 tier points each way. Travelling on booking classes F, P, A you will even earn 210 tier points each way.

So in total with positioning flights to London, up to 770 tier points can be earned with a single holiday to the US, which will already give you the silver status.
