This site has 46 post on this subject since the 20th, the vast majority of which are annoyed by this decision by BA.
Another site has had 416 posts with almost 17000 views since May 20th. Is this BA’s Ratner moment?
For me it remains a dumb decision, badly communicated and in isolation from any other change to EC terms and conditions.
Remember to be a UK GCH requires close to £30,000 of spend a year and it is beyond my comprehension why you would wish to upset these customers in any way. What price a cup of coffee and a sandwhich.
Perhaps there are very few UK based GCH who spend this sort of money given the deals that many corporate customers are given as well as BA’s focus on EU passengers, who have to spend just £12k for the same privileges.
Seems to me BA know the costs of everything but the value of nothing.
