It seems to me “Premier” is not a real tier but rather a status offered to pre-eminent people. Does any one know what are the criteria to become “Premier”?26th August 2011 at 20:36 #502675
Usually given to people who are responsible for generating high revenues for BA. Such as a corporate travel buyer who puts many millions of pounds of business BA’s way.26th August 2011 at 20:37 #502676
BA Premier is an invitation only tier, not dissimilar to the Qantas Chairman’s Lounge level.
It is offered on a very select basis, officially at the invitation of the Board, though in fact not so.
Royalty, former PMs, those with control of a VERY high corporate spend (eg Chairpeople of FTSE 100 companies), some influential travel industry people, those whose fame necessitates special handling, that sort of thing.
About 1,200 people in total.
This is what it looks like:26th August 2011 at 21:28 #502677
Is that your card VK?26th August 2011 at 22:43 #502678
In VK’s defence, Bucksnet, I think I’ve seen that very same image on Flyertalk from other posters, so assume it isn’t VK’s.26th August 2011 at 22:56 #502679
PREMS are often some of the nicest customers, very unassuming and surprisingly ‘not so frequent’ flyers as they are the ‘buyers’ and not the ‘flyers’ as edi-traveller mentioned.
Unless of course one of the qualifying factors to become a PREM is that you are not an arse.

JordonD, VK used to post on Flyertalk using the name ‘krug’ but that account is now closed.2nd September 2011 at 13:50 #502681
Thats so wrong to give the boss of top co the card. I have more power than my ceo and the whole board put together. Its because me the company runs properley at all 😉 My ceo wouldnt get anywhere even home without me!! Its because of me he get his BA ticket because i am the one who makes the booking!! How much do you have to spend on average to get one and once you get is it yours for life? xx >:-
