Iberia Denies Avios Due to Booking Inconsistencies
Last week we covered a deal offered by Iberia for up to 90K Avios that everyone seemed to be really excited about. Dubbed “the deal of the year” by many. But like all amazing deals, it has not been without issue. First, accounts are still locked (mainly for those who created an account to take advantage of the deal). Although, not exclusively as Shawn reported issues with his established account also being locked. Now there may be another issue with Iberia awarding the 90,000 Avios.
Yesterday, One Mile at a Time posted a report from a reader along with an email from Iberia stating that although he correctly provided proof of identity as requested by Iberia, they would not be able to honor the promotion due to “inconsistencies in his bookings”.
Unfortunately, it seems this traveler did what many of you have done, he booked 10 one way tickets that fall within the parameters of the deal terms. Hopefully there is something else that caused a red flag on his account, but without more data points it’s hard to say for sure. Up until this news, it did seem that Iberia was honoring the deal as long as people followed the terms and conditions set forth by Iberia.
Please let us know if you have successfully unlocked your account and what types of flights you booked to meet the promotional terms.
