BA Gold - Linking PNRs

Am I right in thinking there is (or at least used to be) an 'unofficial' benefit of BA Gold enabling a member to link separate PNRs?

Thanks

Correct - it's called TCP, and the requirement is that you are Gold or Premier or travelling with an infant. See here: http://www.speedbirdclub.com/dk/rese.../baseatreqinf/

I had a similar question yesterday.

Can you only link PNR's if all passengers are travelling in the same cabin?

To be clear, anyone can "link" bookings for what it's worth. To do what most people actually want which is the next step of getting seating assignment requests together honoured by Seating Control after the "link", you need to be eligible for it.

What, if anything, is the advantage of linking bookings (as opposed to TCPing them)?

Having tried the latter, and only been allowed to do the former, I'm wondering whether it was a colossal waste of time...

Linking bookings and tcp are effectively the same. The difference for gch and bookings with infants is that both bookings can then be sent back office for seat allocation .
