I’m currently BA Gold, enjoying the perks including the better lounge access. But, I’m using my Avois points travelling to various destinations through 2015 and 2016. I’ve only paid for a single flight, so far, so my tier points collected this year are something like a lowly 230. This is unlikely to change before my Gold expires next March.
What happens when Gold expires? Do you just drop down to Blue? I read somewhere – perhaps falsely – that Gold members drop down to Silver, whatever number of tier points they’ve accrued (or not accrued in my case)?
If you went from Gold to Blue, overnight, I’d potentially question my future use of BA, I think, such would be the shock value of the drop!
