    Don’t forget to cancel it 24+ hours before departure to get your refund, less the cancellation fee. If cancelled <24 hours then you lose everything.
    There is also the option to amend the booking.

    @MarcusGB I’m struggling with “It is impossible to find any Customer Relation on their website, or complaint or on line communication.” apart from anything else.

    2 very quick Googles found me this on Twitter and then this on their own website so I think you’d best use them, and wish you good luck in explaining your displeasure to them.

    Try using the BA redemption finder to play around with. Makes it very simple to quickly find what you’d like.

    Funny I didn’t get the teaser email, but did get the invite today.
    Still not quite sure what it is/meant to be.

    Compared to pricing I recall on American, it seems fairly fair.
    I’d be properly grumpy if the speeds didn’t hold true though.

    If you want to see some footage of Connie on the move to her new home then have a look at this tweet!

    And a few words from USA Today about it too.

    @faroflyer As clearly stated in the Terms & Conditions a Cathay Pacific flight does not count.

    “Qualifying flights

    4: A Qualifying flight is either a one-way (single sector) or a return flight (two sectors) between the point of departure and final destination with no scheduled change of aircraft that must be booked after the Member has registered. Members can receive double Avios on up to 10 single sector Qualifying Flights. A Qualifying flight is (i) a BA prefix on any selling class (excluding Reward flights) or cabin on any BA operated service, or (ii) a BA prefix on a transatlantic flight operated by British Airways (BA), American Airlines (AA), Iberia (IB) or Finnair (AY) between the Europe and North America. The promotion also applies to travel on domestic flights within the UK and Southern Africa (operated by Comair), Sunnair and CityFlyer. Any other flights operated by any other BA franchises, codeshare partners or oneworld Alliance members will not qualify, and (iii) any flight included as part of a British Airways Holiday package”

    @transtraxman Yes I spotted that too. Reckon they were aware, prepared the notice then & later published it on their site.

    OK, this may not suit everybody, but for me this is terrific value for money for my next ex-Europe ticket & thank you to my superb TC, who some of you know.

    • £1704 (both tickets)

    • 520 avios

    • 77,000 avios in total – if CX flights count for double as well.(double avios offer)

    • = 17 Y sectors in Europe economy

    • Or 8 sectors in Club

    All on that dated product, poor service, rude staff, overpriced, home at horrible T5, rubbish lounge BUT, very comfy seat for sleeping… and with a 9pm take off, instead of 6.20pm (for the 380 service), virtually guaranteed 8 – 9 hours of sleep (says me hopefully)….

    @martynsinclair Do you mean 520 Tier Points?

    Some time ago I heard about this organisation which may quell some concerns mentioned earlier.
    Not the boiling knickers in a kettle situation though.

    I’m more worried about hotel guests boiling their underwear in the kettle which was exposed a while back

    Oh sweet Jesus, why did you have to open my eyes to this?! *pukes*

    Did Virgin Atlantic not do the same about 3 years ago? Unsure if they all got the chop too, or if it was just the seniors, as well as reducing the crew complement on board.

    At least the multiple press releases about the new Ozwald Boateng uniforms will have helped bury this further.

    @mario, if you live in the vicinity of Heathrow or indeed are in London before your flight, I would go out to the airport and go straight to the F check in at T5 and find a manager to speak to. The staff there can be very helpful and I think its worth a try.

    Whilst we all know seat reservations are subject to change, but in this case, for you, it is a one and only chance.

    I would be surprised if you get anywhere by mail though..

    Please let us know

    Something else to do which helps you retain seat flexibility is to check-in online/in app but *DO NOT* print off/download your boarding pass. Then at the airport speak to a human or use a machine to see if you can move further forward. I presume you had to pay to reserve as you’ve not mentioned status. Do ensure you get that fee refunded.
