Reply To: BA miles – upgrading classes not allowed if company has paid?

Back to Forum


To be clear BA has no “refused” to upgrade using miles; it is following the stated policy that Miles for Upgrade (“MFU”) is not valid on TA/Corporate bookings.

This is not a “new rule” as it has always been the case, so you were misinformed there.

It can be frustrating, but I suppose it exists to stop firms always plumping for less expensive fare classes, or booking using a corp discount fare, and then upgrading “for free” using the employee’s personal miles; a trend neither BA nor employees would be keen to see happen.

Same as was the case for sale fares.

However, it is highly possible this corporate/TA restriction will be lifted shortly. Highly possible.
