Seems as though they are wanting the majority of us to ACCEPT this crock??
Free miles or no, a deal's a deal, a long wait is a tease, and a promise is a promise! Where are the facts and figures? Why does BA/Jag do this to people who WOULD have used the airline?!!
I havent been around for a while in here, but if you know me, you KNOW I'll fight them til we see our miles! i did it with bank of America and got back missing miles (for those who did not get in on that one, email me or go to the other forum and check posts from a few weeks back on the subject...)
"Too much" = When people tout THEIR limits but are just mad they didn't do-or have no means to do deals. See "sour grapes."
Careful - the page looks to be a mock-up, and not the legitimate story. If you click on page two, it takes you to a Car and Driver article, which then when you return to page one, has absolutely nothing to do with BA and Jaguar. I'm not alarmed yet.
ScottC (that Very Bad Man, as Churchill used to refer to Hitler)( ) made up that article. It was a good job - almost too good. One had to look very closely to find out the "fake" disclaimer. Caught a lot of people, myself included.
I have it on good authority that all his children will be toads.

The funniest thing about it (in my view) is that BA/Jaguar is just asking for these types of hoaxes by not delivering the miles in the timeframe they promised.
Maybe the next time they do one of these promotions, there will be a meeting at which someone at BA and/or Jaguar will ask:
"OK, so it's agreed that we will wait as long as possible and even a bit past the promised 6-8 weeks. Any downside to this strategy?"
Someone raises hand.
"Yes, I think the downside to delaying everyone's miles past the promised date is that it would lead to a fertile ground for rumours and hoaxes...
"And a fair number of people will believe these rumours and hoaxes, which doesn't do a whole lot for customer goodwill towards either BA or Jaguary... Plus, it will lead to plenty of otherwise unnecessary calls to our customer service reps asking about these rumors and hoaxes that miles will not be forthcoming."

You people need to be patient! The points will post soon enough.
