Thanks for this. I had assumed that the fare class code was what would be used to calculate tier points.

I have to say that, while the service on my recent BA flights has been very good, I can't see any real incentive to use BA (except flight frequency) on domestic flights if you're paying full fare. On the LHR-MAN run for instance, a C class ticket (same price as BA's J class tickets) gets you slightly wider seats in a separate cabin, and a much more extensive drinks selection. The new C-class food offered by BD is a step down on their old product, but still considerably ahead of the All Day Deli (which is better than BD's short haul economy food offering, IMHO).

While we're on this subject, I'm doing a day trip to DUB on EI this Monday in Premier (Business). As this is clearly a 2 class service, am I right in assuming I'll get 40 points each way?

Also, are BA's LGW-DUB services proper 2-class short haul flights, or treated as domestics?
