BA launches "miles for delays" promotion

20 Nov 2008 by Mark Caswell

British Airways
is currently offering Executive Club members 5,000 bonus miles if their flight
from Heathrow or Gatwick is delayed by more than 15 minutes.

BA says the offer
is designed to show “how seriously we take our commitment to punctuality”, and
is valid for any passengers purchasing flexible tickets with departures from
London Gatwick or Heathrow, between now and December 19.

To qualify for
the potential bonus, passengers must pre-register at, and be
travelling on a flexible ticket, on one of the
following fare types: First (F, A); Club World (J, C, D);
World Traveller Plus (W, E); World Traveller (Y, B, H); Club
Europe (J, C, D); Euro Traveller (Y, B, H) and Domestic (J, C, Y).

The offer does
not apply to flights operated by franchisees, codeshare partners or Oneworld
alliance members, and the airline “reserves the right
to exclude any flights from this promotion where the delay occurs beyond the
reasonable control of British Airways”.
