Looks like T class has been removed leaving just the redemption classes X & U ineligible.

Two "T" class flights just posted to my Aer Club account; 7.5 Tier Points a pop (as expected), and 3 Avios per 1 spend (though over the entire amount, including taxes and charges, rather than over the base fare as I had originally expected).

I booked a flight in Economy "E", and have upgraded to Business "U" through Plusgrade. Will this mean I will get the Avios and Tier Points applicable to class E, or will I get nothing, as per class U?

Paid upgrades never earned under GC so would expect same with AC, it is now U class so not earning

Operational upgrades earn at the sold rate

I'm glad that has been corrected, I noticed it myself. A bit late though as I booked a BA flight instead of an EI flight due to the T not earning. Oh well!

You will still earn Avios on the BA flight so your grand

That's not how BA do things; I would imagine that the IAG approach would be used as it has been in other areas (allowing non-status holders to use their Avios balances, etc)...

Perhaps when someone actually does this, they can come back and tell us what they earned...

I'll post back once it shows up. I should at least get the points for the return if I get nothing for the upgrade.

Thanks. Enjoy the flights. And despite the recent anti-consumer mess of the whole Aerclub transition, I would be quietly confident that you will earn your original E Avios/Tier Credits....

​Cheers. Flights have flown already. Just waiting for them to appear in my AerClub account, however long that will take.

What if you pay for an upgrade via the "Manage my booking section" and not the online bidding system?

Does that still exist? Haven't seen it as an option in a couple years. Could never do it anyway, as it wouldn't work if you had a connecting flight.

Surely a "paid upgrade" is a "paid upgrade" regardless of the specifics/mechanics of how payment was made?
