But I was able to complete both consecutive POUGs, and we did indeed fly CW on that flight - it was my first-ever CW flight, in fact!
I have a different experience, on an LHR-YVR trip a few months ago. The system would let me complete an upgrade my other half's WT+ to CW, and I was then offered CW to F, so I went ahead, and paid for that too, but just after taking the second payment, computer said no. I called up BA, and was informed that double poug wasn't allowed, and that I'd receive a card refund.
