Good news for some frequent fliers: British Airways is offering double points on your next 10 flights between the United States and Europe through the end of the year.
However, as View From the Wing points out, there are a few caveats for this deal:
- Kids under the age of 18 won’t earn double points
- You are limited to 10 Qualifying Flights
- “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”
- “(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.”
- You won’t get points on bookings you made prior to registering for the deal.
Some FlyerTalkers have run into another problem: they can’t seem to register at all. In this thread, Porky Speedpig says he’s “Tried twice to register, each time the error ‘your attempt has been unsuccessful, you are not eligible for this offer’ pops up. Anyone else get this?”
Several FlyerTalkers chimed in to say that they also received the same message from British Airways prompting HFHFFlyer to comment, “BA really don’t help themselves, do they? Sending out an email to one of their most loyal customers, advertising an offer and then saying you can’t have it.”
