Combine Avios (Apologies)

Hi all,

I cannot transfer Avios from EI to BA today for some reason (having done so the other way about two weeks ago with no worries). I've tried Chrome, I've tried Edge but all I get is a message per below. I'm sorry to ask another query on this topic but is this down to user error or a bug in the system? My email address, DoB and full name match in both my EI and BA accounts. "Sorry, Combine my Avios was unsuccessful. Please try again later.

For reference purposes, here is the transaction id: CMA-1106735936.48276768"
Input as always is welcome - thanks in advance.

It can be very bug ridden. Try also going from the BA website maybe and pull some across. Also if you have an existing Iberia account you can use them as an intermediate which has worked well for me in the past.

Thank you all - it has just worked on my phone. All is well. Must investigate if you get better value booking reward flights through Iberia or through BA if its the same.
DELLAS and Beleir like this.

IB can be better value, but watch out for extra limitations if trying to change or cancel
