I'm no IT expert, so will take it as read that the above is correct. One would have thought if they'd wanted to do this, they probably should have planned it before the promotion though, as I doubt a solution can be developed, tested and applied in a few days.

Regardless, We are talking about Iberia here, who don't have a reputation for being best in class IT wise, to put it extremely kindly!
