11 Oct 18 Severe glitch prevents booking of flights see post #3318

Airports served by oneworld or BA partners that are not recognised on the Avios redemption search

3 Jun 18 ... "Print Boarding Pass" generates a blank field where the BP should be! Clicking "Print" generates, predictably, a blank sheet of paper!
Mac/Safari (EDIT, 3 Jun: Solution is to "Email BP", which initially shows blank as well, but the email contains the full BP.) Same again on 3 Sep 18, and same fix!

27 Nov ... Can not search for a flight on the updated BA.com website interface , after inputting all informations ( destinations , paxs and dates etc) it pretended to load and then just reverts back to the home page with all fields now cleared. iMac/Safari

Claiming missing avios pages not working [Link]

22 Sep 16, see Post 2005. Hotel Avios giving different results depending on which page you view. Mac/Safari.

6 October 16 Cannot pay by paypal when doing redemptions

.May 18. Login to BAEC generates error message (Mac/Safari) although works on 2nd attempt. Noted at >>> https://www.flyertalk.com/forum/brit...l#post29777401

Thanks. I've raised with the support team to fix it.

The reason I say that is because I'm using the exact same Chrome version and having no problems at all.
Yep, seems to have sorted itself out.

Seat selection on MMB in First not working


I have an open-jaw 2-4-1 booking LHR-LAS in F and LAX-LHR in J.

When I go into MMB, our LHR-LAS leg (in F) shows that I already have 4E reserved and "null" for my wife but that I can reserve a seat for free for Mrs A406.

When I go to do that (select 4F) and confirm it comes up with an error message:

Unfortunately our systems are not responding, so we are unable to process your request at the moment.
We apologise for this inconvenience and suggest you try again later."

Any ideas why? Do I need to call to reserve this?

Trying to pre order my meal for LHR-YYZ July 1. In MMB it gives me the option to 'pre order meal' but then when I click on the specific flight it says:

"You are unable to order all types of meals online for this flight due to a technical problem, but you will be able to order on-board"

Is this a technical problem that can be resolved?

Great. I sent you a PM with more details and with an offer to send more screenshots. Great to get this fixed.

(The best fix would be to make more flights available for young adults! But that's just my opnion ;-)).

Been having the above issues since 4am this morning. Can it be this difficult to fix?
I can now log in but can't see any of my bookings.

Me too

No data found for Gender

Despite it knowing that I'm 'Mr EvilDoctorK'

Got it first when it failed to login, then managed to login .. now popping up when searching for anything ... Clearly they do know my gender ... though equally clearly why should it matter for an Avios booking search ?
