Well there is an inconsistency anyway, since JER, which is and will be just about the shortest CE route, is currently on 40 TPs. But 20 TPs would seem a reasonable approach to me. If it's 40 TPs then that falls well into the "too good to be true" category, I'd be getting 240 TPs on trips like NCL-ATH return. That said, for quite a while IB codeshares on BA domestics could get 40 TPs

As Jersey isn't part of UK I don't see that as inconsistent. In fact I don't see any reason why a separate tier of TPs could exist for UK domestic destinations.

It is either Club Europe or it is not Club Europe. I see no reason to tweak TPs, they should be consistent across all markets.

As this is a new class of service for domestics, BA have a completely free hand in setting the TP level and so past practice cannot be relied on. I think it is strange that it was branded Club Europe in the presentation because if things go to plan in just over two years the UK won't be part of Europe, so Club UK would have been a much better designation.

FWIW it may well be the case they will allocate 40 TP for full flex J and 20TP for lower fare classes with only J/F connections booking into domestic club.

When does anyone think Club Europe will be introduced on UK services? From 11 January - the same day as BOB so as to keep similar service for business and first customers as they currently receive on domestic flights??

Also do you think customers booked with connections from domestic points will automatically be rebooked into Club Europe on the domestic flight rather than economy?

I have a few flight in Jan, Feb and March which are J domestic connecting onto Club Europe and would be happy I'm now getting my breakfast back and the luxury of an empty middle seat guaranteed!!

While the UK may continue to exist or not, the British Isles will remain in Europe.

What a ridiculous assertion.

The UK will always be "part of Europe."

Goodness, are we being towed out into the Atlantic? It's really hard to keep on top of all the news these days.

Well, we are technically moving away from the mainland.....may take millions of years though to get a half decent distance ;)

Can't we position closer to Barbados?

Nah, it'll screw up the TP runs even more. There again RFS around the Caribbean sounds interesting.

Agreed. I think passengers ought to have a clear idea of what benefits they will receive without having to decipher a table.

A propos, as London based and one who rarely takes a plane within the UK, I have no strong view on this either as positive or negative.

There is a movement pushing for this (no pun intended).

And how do you propose that passengers should get a clear idea of what they'll get, without consulting a table or calculator?!

You point seems nonsensical given that already TP earnings already vary markedly depending on route and fare class.

What continent will the UK become a part of?

While the UK may not be part of the European Union, I fully expect it will remain a part of Europe
