Ah just remember to get 25k miles / points for a red Flying Club member you have to fly for example i think 7 returns to NYC, average cost say £350 in economy so thats just under £2.5k spent
Now your free flight, its not really free as you will no doubt have to pay all the taxes ect on the flight.
So you book a reward flight to NYC using 25k of miles, based on a economy ticket price of say £350 your still going to have to pay around £200 in taxes & fees, meaning you have to spend £2.5k to save only £150.
Really only makes it worth while if you book a reward flight in Upper Class but you then need 90000 miles / points for a UC flight to NYC but you do get a 2k ticket for about £300 or do a miles for upgrade, book economy but use X amount of miles to upgrade to the next cabin up.
