And the answer to the second part of the question is 'no'. Flights have to originate in the USA. Full details are in the terms and conditions here:

https://www.britishairways.com/en-gb...visa-signature

"Valid only for new bookings made by US residents paying in USD with a valid British Airways Visa Signature card issued by Chase, for travel commencing from the US to London and beyond or commencing on OpenSkies from New York/Newark to Paris Orly. Cardholder must travel to qualify for the 10% discount."

Many folks have reported that (1) they have successfully booked itineraries that did not incude the cardholder, and (2) any Chase Visa card will work, it doesn't have to be the BA-branded Visa.

I know.

I was quoting the terms as they relate to the question I was answering (the one relating to the country of departure).

Yes, you know, but there are other people reading this thread besides you. By quoting T & C's that, in reality, are never enforced, misinformation is being repeated, without any caveats or context.

I answered a specific question by referencing the supplier's published terms and conditions. The clause in the terms and conditions that related to the OP's question are correct and enforced and my answer was correct. Are you suggesting that whenever we answer questions and make reference to the terms and conditions we also have to spell out all the other non related things in the terms that *may* not be enforced or we're guilty of spreading misinformation?

Good luck with that then! I'll not be doing it.

Based on the Fly2Where's post above it sounds like it is now necessary to use a BA Chase Card now (as listed in the terms). You'll need to keep up to date or you might end up spreading misinformation and that would never do
