Sounds like a great way to get banned.

You're going to fly 10 times for some promo Avios that will expire before the year is up?
Probably can't even transfer them to BA.

is there a way to get a  full refund on the 10 tickets after you use the avios? meaning if I book the paid  for next spring  2019 and use the avios by September 2018  can i call up Iberia and get a full refund  on the paid tickets?or is it like priceline and other ota that only allow 24 hours.

i just realized you can book business flexible , the question is if iberia shuts you down can ba shut you down as well? and if this is transferable to ba can ba shut you down  for transferring 90,000 from iberia? and would it make sense to mix up  routes  and dates  when booking the paid fare to avoid getting shut down by  iberia?

I am thinking of getting in on this deal, so I am curious, what makes you say that one would get banned? if I buy a ticket, and can't make it onto the flight, is that really so injurious to the airline that they would ban me from their Avios program? Or am I missing something?

1, probably nothing.
10, definitely grounds for a ban. AA and BA have banned for far less than that.

Aside from that, odds seem high that they renege.

Why not? tell the bank you only bought the ticket because they promised 9k miles.
