BA Gold 100% mile bonus ( on BA metal or BA flight number)

Hi,

Apologies if this is a stupid question but I could not find an answer readily on BA.com.

I am planning on going to HEL and back then off to Granada via MAD .

Is the tier point bonus for BA Gold pax based on;


(a) BA flight number regardless of metal ( ie BA flight no/ AY or IB metal) would get a bonus

(b) BA metal regardless of flight number ( ie IB flight number but BA metal) would get the bonus

(c) Both BA flight number & metal ( ie a BAxxx on a BA metal)

Every mile helps a bit!

Many thanks

TBS

Has to be OneWorld operated and marketed, with BA flight number. For instance Finnair metal, BA flight number; Qantas metal, Ba flight number = OK.

Hmm, it's 75% for an IB flight number but I'm not sure if you get the extra 25% if it's a BA number.

This was probably not much help

You get 100% bonus flying on IB with a BA flight number. Do it all the time. ;-)

...and you only get 75% bonus miles on IB if flying on one of their long haul JBA routes. You get nada bonus if flying shorthaul and even more hideous only 25% miles on discounted economy.
