Tier Credit earning now possible on BA issued tickets

Not an April Fools!

Since yesterday, Tier Credits can be earned on BA flights when issued by BA themselves or by EI.

The same applies in reverse - BA Executive Club Members can earn Tier Points now on Aer LIngus

Wonder why its only BA, why no IB??

Does this mean recognition on BA also?

Mutual status recognition between EI and BA would be transformational

200 TCs for round trip WTP is the sweetspot there, I've gotten that a couple of times for < $1.5k stacking the Chase/AARP discounts.

You could pick up EI Platinum easy enough there.

Fingers crossed . Its great for me I will be using BA a lot more now when flying out of LHR LGW LCY. It will be great to bank those into Aerclub. Its a big step forward. Im hoping IB get added too at some point .

Surely a oneworld tie in has to be involved here no? Or is there some technical work around via the IAG group.

Either way on the face of it good news and a whole new set of options on how to use flights for a preferred program. As an earner in both programs and have/had various status levels simultaneously with both programs I'm caught should I focus on all on one or split tactically if oddly the benefits will remain separate. Greater options are always good though.

I’m in a similar boat. The beauty of being able to credit to either AerClub or BAEC is that it makes it easier to optimise status on both airlines. Due to travel patterns outside my control, I finished last year with about 600 TPs on EI and 1,100 TPs on BA. The net effect was that I “wasted” 500 TPs on BA given I was 500 TPs over the Silver threshold but still a long way from Gold. Under the new system, I could credit those surplus 500 TPs to EI and move up a tier to Concierge while still maintaining Silver on BA. This is a much better result.

of course, mutual status recognition would make it even easier, but I’m content with this arrangement for now.

Would love to see status recognition. Trying to keep EI Concierge / BA Silver and then Star Alliance Gold sometimes is a chore.

Checking random dates, €266 for a return business fare on BA to London City Airport is almost a return of the “cheap” AerSpace fare, but with more alcohol and baggage allowance for the 100TCs

We have been looking at the same thing
I have a feeling my CC is about to take a hammering . Also a few DUB-LON-XXX CE returns are in order for 200 TPs .
