Apologies for not replying to your post yesterday. I am sorry I didn't realise you were a fellow FT'er otherwise I would have said hello. I was on my way home from the Bristol Do. Sorry about the tired look, I hadn't had a chance to do my normal moisturising routine yesterday

T-UK - it's all relative! I think he's young.

No worries. I guessed it was you. Hope you enjoyed Bristol. Sorry too for not saying hello, but my Mrs would have thought I was mad for talking to some person I was guessing may be half familiar from an anonymous geeky travel website. 🤔😄

To close on the CCR card, I did receive my CCR card, 20 days after receiving my GGL card.

Got a qn here

Can you use a GUF+Joker on a itinerary on an Avios redemption with non-BA flights?

Thinking of the following

BNE (QF)-SYD (BA)-SIN

​​​​
Was wanting to do the first leg BNE-SYD in Y but GUF/Joker into J on the SYD-SIN leg.

I know you can book 2 separate tickets. But the same ticket combination potentially gives the through-check benefit on QF.

Yes i think that should be fine, although the benefits of the joker and GUF will only apply to the SYD-SIN BA sector.

Not sure where to post this question (doesn't warrant it's own thread I feel), so I'll leverage the collective wisdom of the Board's GGL members.
Travelling to MIA in May with BA, back with AA on an AA plated ticket. The final ex-EU leg of the trip (BA flight / AA flight number) has been cancelled and I can see on the BA app I have been moved to an earlier service, but the AA app still shows me on the cancelled BA later flight and after a few days waiting for the changes to feed through to AA I rang them yesterday and they can't see any change to the original itinerary - so BA haven't passed on the cancellation notice to them yet. Any ideas how long BA usually take to notify partner airlines about their schedule changes?
My positioning ex-EU return has also changed (was a B2B), so rang BA to see about changes and apparently I can move the flight 3 days either way or accept a refund - any idea if AA have roughly the same guidelines and could I even push for a change in final destination within a certain mileage radius?

I've used up all 5 spaces in my family and friends list but would like to nominate someone new for a partner card. If I remove someone from the list, will it affect/remove the partner card I've previously given them?

It will not affect their partner card, but be aware, once you have made that change, I think you have 24 hrs to make further changes, and list will be locked for 6 months

You can call and override that

Couldn't find anything on a quick search... does anyone know if a joker can be used on a BA operated by Comair service?
