Even that is not terrible. Short hauls go from 4500 OW to 5500
True, but why would I book with IB if I can just transfer to BA and save?

What were you going to use them for?
USA-TLV it will run me 1/3 more to fly from 60 to 90k on J and 90 to 120k on F +YQ the only hope is if BA will drop the hefty YQ then it will sweeten the dev

True, but I suspect that the same may be true for BA and they just forgot

Check your other options from MR and see if it still make sense to transfer now with the 40% bonus.

the other option is AA 67.5k or LH BA is not worth it even with the 40% for numbers sake AA J OW to TLV is 67.5k x1.4(40%)=94.5 +YQ for BA on partners  and dont forget that MR points worth more then AA this days

Even if YQ doesn't change, total avios needed for BA on TLV-LHR-JFK in Y (32.5 OW if I'm calculating correctly) will go down, no?

ETA: Off peak

If I wanted to make a date change on a pre-devaluation booking. Would I now need to pay up the additional miles to reflect the new rate?

Just spoke with ba,they said that if I book a flight before the devaluation I can change the flight even after the devaluation without having to shell out more miles does this make sense

quoted from the BA thread....

MAN - BRU used to be 4500 Avios and $27, now it's 8000 Avios and $55. I thought economy is not being devaluated???
