Some confusion about MMB upgrades

Hi all,

Last week I booked LHR-PHL-LHR in WT and upgraded using miles to WT+. Just completed the outbound flight yesterday and see that I've only been credited with TP's equivalent to the WT cabin! I am going to call them up to see what the story is, but I was certainly under the impression that upgrading through MMB would give me the TP's of the higher cabin? Perhaps I was confused...let's see what BA say about it!

There is no mistake. You only get the TP from the original booking, not the upgraded cabin.

Upgrade with miles - original cabin miles.

Upgrade with cash - new cabin miles.

To clarify, you get TP from your PAID cabin. If you upgrade with cash, then you would have got TP from the better cabin, but as you used miles it was not paid.

Yes, completely correct. And logical, otherwise any redemption booking would be miles and TP earning, which we all accept cannot be the case.
You got the correct TP and miles for the cabin PAID for.
