I've seen that to they seem to offer a sale price that you can not get miles + money on.

Not sure Babiface if they will? In the past they seem to have given the choice of buy it in the sale or use your miles, but you can't combine the offers. Standard sales tactics I guess - terms and conditions apply!!

The miles + money fares are higher, because the £498 is already a reduced fare. Can't have it both ways.

Was just told it depends on the specific dates you book. Some dates are blocked out for miles plus money deals. Plus, they aren't selling every economy seat at £498... it's a limited number, after those are gone, the fare rises marginally to £518. Naturally, it's the weekend dates which sell fastest.
