Reply To: Book’n upgrade

Back to Forum


Hi all

As I have had the great pleasure of getting an unexpected invite to a wedding in SFO, and have quite a few pts, I was thinking I should spoil my girl and me going First. Actually, we don’t have enough to go entirely by First, but I thought I should check out the Book and upgrade by pts option.

That was an interesting experience. I found seats and it suggested 120K pts and approx £12000.

Now, I thought that a bit expensive so I dismissed the idea. But for the fun of it, I checked the price for First without using pts, and my, was I surprised to learn that it was not only the same price, but it was even cheaper by about £60. Without spending pts…

So, why would I waste 120K pts and £60 on a book and upgrade? Evidently this must be wrong.

Gotta call BA on this, but thought I should give you folks a heads up, anyone else experienced this?
