Take note, BA.
It's also far harder to achieve than BA Gold...

Ok, compare it to GGL. Those passes are still a huge benefit.

Makes you wish BA had kept Open Doors for Golds, eh?

Yes, theoretically flights flown once they are oneworld will earn TPs and Avios.

Although not mentioned, they normally have a two month window at the beginning where you earn double avois on new members.

that being the case, would that mean BAEC flying on a QR flight would get double Avios?

The earning chart though is just for partners and not one world members right? This should change to award tier points as well when they join one world?

You will definitely be able to earn Avios and Tier Ponts.

This is going to provide some interesting TP runs on intra GCC routes. AUH-DMM via DOH is usually available very cheaply in J on QR. No doubt there will be plenty of other similar routes.

QR has stated that Privilege Club members can redeem on BA as and from 1 October. BA has not yet said when BAEC members can redeem on QR - though this will definitely happen from October 30.
