2017 POUG rate tracker

Please add your own successful results to the follow list including the month/year when the POUG was offered to you. Please delete any figures from 2017 or earlier if you have a 2018 price. Previous data lives on via post 2.

UPDATED TO: Post #418

POUGs are offered via BA.com and the App Manage My Booking via a distinctive banner (example from MMB below). You cannot get a POUG by telephoning, however the service centres can complete a POUG which falls over mid transaction. They are offered on cash and Avios redemptions but typically not on complex routings, BA Holidays or travel agency bookings until OLCI stage. POUGs on Avios redemptions won't get you additional TPs/Avios, but they will on revenue tickets.



Short haul routes from LON to/from Europe
A price in pounds indicates a ticket issued from London, other currencies indicate prices for tickets issued overseas (e.g. singles or returns originating from CDG priced in Euros). Multiple prices indicate a range of fares are on offer. Note that LCY prices currently seem to be on a different basis to LGW and LHR (cheaper, in other words).

VIE-LHR €129 per person offered on a cheap HBO one-way ticket (£80 or so pp) to CE for 19 April 2018. This appeared in MMB, then vanished for a few days and reappeared two days before departure. Accepted for all three of us travelling as this was a connection back to London following a return from Taipei on China Airlines (which really isn't too bad in business class). Wiki updated.

In the end, was glad I did (despite having bagged exit row seats for all of us in ET). Plane from TPE very late thanks to ATC IT problems on departure from Taiwan. We arrived into Vienna at 0700 with the BA flight to LHR scheduled for 0745. Fortunately, the flight from TPE arrived into the D gate area and incoming passengers are not separated from outbound pax so we were able to stroll across the gate area from D24 to D21. I've never done a connection in 15 minutes before... The Castlenau was quite welcome alongside breakfast!

IAH - LHR: upgrade to WTP offered for $185 (from O class WT fare)
LHR - IAH: $205 for the same

Overall upgrade cost ($390) is greater than the ticket price I paid for this trip ($385); no upgrades offered for the second set of legs to/from Scotland.

Does anyone know the pace at which BA is upgrading 777-200 with new seats? These flights only have four rows of WTP and, based on BA Source, it’s almost always this older configuration of 772 that’s flying IAH-LHR.

Still debating whether to take the upgrade but, even with old WTP product, seems worth it.

WT > WTP upgrade offered for £279 on PHL - LHR to the OH.
Usually would say no, but currently debating it given WTP has only 1 free seat left as per EF, and Business is quiet. With W9 seats still available for sale I think they are trying to get people to upgrade from WT and will roll people forward which may make a bump to CW more likely.

Just offered WT -> WTP on LHR-IAD on an Avios booking (last minute/somewhat emergency booking, otherwise wouldn't book TATL reward in Y) for $171. Took it, no question.

Does anyone know the pace at which BA is upgrading 777-200 with new seats? These flights only have four rows of WTP and, based on BA Source, it’s almost always this older configuration of 772 that’s flying IAH-LHR.

Still debating whether to take the upgrade but, even with old WTP product, seems worth it.
Oh my! This is rather a good deal. I do this route frequently and have never seen POUG prices that low! Even with the old WTP product I'd take the UPG for that price!

It does seem that we always get the older cabins now, almost religiously, although we have traditionally been very fortunate.

What happens if I pay to reserve seats in ET and then get a POUG for CE? Do I get the seat reservation cost refunded?

As teledude says, you can get a refund. There's a form for it: https://www.britishairways.com/trave...ing_claim_form

You can pay the difference for seat seletion in CE or select from the free options available at T-24h (T-7 days if Bronze, anytime if Silver/Gold)

The specific BA wording is that you can claim a refund if:
you have paid for an upgrade and do not wish to pay the difference in order to reselect your seat in the alternative cabin

You need 90 posts + 90 days membership to edit a Wiki post. Thanks for the data points, I've taken the liberty of adding them.

Does anyone have a definitive answer as to whether POUGs are offered for BA Holiday bookings?

I've read some reports saying that POUGs for BA Holidays flights can show up at T-24 (at OLCI) and others that say POUGs are never offered on BA Holidays flights.

I'm really hoping for a POUG offer on my upcoming LHR-TFS flight; CE looks to have a lot of availability and ET is basically fully booked. However, from the Wiki, it doesn't seem like this is a common route for POUG availability. I tried calling BA Holidays but they quoted some utterly crazy amount to upgrade.

Just looked on my credit card statement, and indeed the email receipt, and was charged $51 instead. Assume it won't be reversed as that's what the receipt says. There was a bizarre error when paying for it online, but it seemed to go through and I was able to select seats in WTP so thought nothing of it at the time. Hoping for another POUG on the way back to London.
