Annoyingly, though, you cannot see your DOB on the Avios site, you need to call. And they need a passport copy to change it if incorrect.

Or, of course, your Avios ac is a HHA. No restriction on BA HHA, I think.
Thanks for the suggestion. it was not DOB (I can't see where Avios has a space for that) but non-matching e-mail addresses which was the problem. It seems that if they match it does not matter that the addresses are in different countries. How very odd !
