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

Back to Forum


Hmm. Even on discounted fares you should have earned some miles; I could perhaps have understood them making an error and crediting you with too many miles (eg perhaps mistaking the fare class), but not so systematically.

Must have a been a quirk of the corporate deal; some firms (and govts.) do not allow individuals to earn personal miles on “corporate” travel, but I have never heard of an incident where BA confiscates personal miles in totality, except in case of fraud (which I am sure was not the issue in your case).

Probably too long ago to do anything about it now, but highly irregular.
