When I switched allegiance from UA to AA, AA did same thing but they would only offer 2nd ter (Platinum) immediately and upgradeedd to EXP if you flew X miles in following 3 months. I suspect BA does something very similar.
Hyatt is a good deal as they have some very nice properties.8 Aug 2011
No, BA is very strict on the status match thing.
They never offer status match except in one case that I remember for Belgium and Holland , when bmi stopped flying there .
BA offered status match on bmi’s elite members but they should have been registered in those countries.
bmi does status match on BA’s members all the time, you just have to ask.8 Aug 2011
