Question Question about "My Flights" app [service ends on 31 Dec 2017]

Recomendations on here made me download the My Flights app.
Its really good.

The changes will be highlighted in red and/or green.

Make sure you scroll all the way down to see the change.

Did you install the app at that time?

Rarely it gives these phantom alerts. Either you'll get an email with the changes or you'll need to go through each flight on the app and hit refresh. The changes will be in green for anything added and red for anything deleted.

Make sure you tap on "show changes" at the top left of the booking page in my flights. I don't think I have ever had any phantom alerts.

I got notified of a change that solely consisted of "British Airways" and a 6-letter code added under "Further info". Does anyone know what that is?

Is your flight about 5-7 days away?

This is an internal BA reference code. Apparently this is a BABS reference (for the BA departure system) and is the one that gets printed on your checked bag tag. Interestingly the original Amadeus PNR you got when you booked does not appear on the bag tag.

This internal reference appears on all BA bookings. I use myflights app and I usually get a change notification a few days before the flight when the booking syncs to the departure system and this internal reference appears

I got that too under "Airline Ref" with one 6 character code swapped for another - neither of them the PNR. BA flight/BA aircraft. Flight is on Saturday.

I did wonder what it was, but not enough to ask here, until I saw this thread

my flight is Thursday, scanned bot the app and the mail sent but no detectable changes nothing highlighted.

Since no major change, I'll just ignore it and go about as usual
