    Sidebar rant: BA can include whatever countries they want, but I wish they’d get their geography right. Israel is not and has not been part of Europe. It’s in Asia. It is a simple geographical fact. BA should at least ensure their T&Cs are correct in this manner.

    (They’ve also given themselves plenty of wiggle room if you are in the Asian parts of Turkey and Russia, but that’s another issue).

    I think the answer to your question JordanD is because its due to Middle East politics!

    Please dont let this remark open the door……………..or should i have left the question unanswered???

    Martyn – I understand the likelihood of why, but (and I don’t want to get into the politics of the region) the land in that part of the world is part of the Asian continent, rather than Europe, and so BA should place it correctly.

    JordonD, politics aside, I wonder how the region, air travel travel and commerce would indeed fare if BA and all other airlines considered the country in Asia as opposed to Europe. Probably be very positive move. Interesting side comment…..

    Yet again we see UK based BA EC members at a disadvantage to the rest of the world. Even South Africa, which has the same rules as the UK, is included in the deal. Getting fed up with being treated like this by BA. Am I surprised??

    Irrespective of country rules, the generosity of the scheme should be treated with caution. It is all well & good BA boosting mileages, but the redemptions are being made harder. So if BA miles is considered a form of currency, they become harder to spend.

    Perhaps a false economy, but after all, it is marketing.

    Of course they have to post the miles for this offer to be useful. Have just completed 3 sectors on BA but only 1 actually posted tier points and miles. The other 2 were ineligible despite being business class and fully compliant with BA T&C.

    The Binman continues to be among BA’s most unlucky customers, seemingly blighted at every possible turn.

    Much better he stays home in future. Those eligible can enjoy this offer to the full:
