Do Open Skies flights count towards 4 BA flights

Hello there, this is my first FT post. Does anyone know if Open Skies count towards the 4 BA flights required for Silver and Gold Status?

Thank you

Welcome to flyertalk !!!

Would you be booking the os flight number from their website or the BA flight number via BA.com ??

I would say not then, but that's just a guess. I'm sure others will be able to give you a 100% answer.

Thanks, cs. I spoke with BA and confirmed that Openskies flights do not qualify towards the 4 BA segments.

Outstanding !!!

Like I said previously I would of put money on them not counting unless booked via ba.com under the BA flight numbers, but this is good news for you and thanks for clarifying the situation for the rest of us.
