My membership year ends on 8 July, would my flights on 8 July be counted for this year or next year?
Would it be possible to remove my BA number from the July 8 flights and retro claim them (say July 10) after my new year starts?

1. This year, which includes all flights scheduled to depart on 8 July local date/time.
2. Yes, but it's pointless because the flights will still be counted for the current year when they post, not for your new year.

If it's on the 8th then it will be on current year. As for the 2nd i'll leave it someone who knows better or works for BA but i'd lean towards no as you're already a member so I think that if you claimed for the flight after the event they'd still pick up on the travel date and apply it as it should be ( ie to current year)

Yes, even if retro claimed later they would be applied as per the actual flight date so count towards the current year as noted by Globaliser

Hi guys,

I am currently BA silver and have booked a return flight LHR - DUS in Euro Traveller.

With being silver I am able to reserve a seat from the point of my booking. Now I have seen that I am able to reserve a seat between rows 4 and 8 (plane is an Airbus A319).

Does this mean I can choose a Club Europe seat without paying for CE?

Thanks for your help.

The CE cabin is presumably just rows 1-3? You won't be able to select a seat in the CE cabin - you can double check as CE won't have B and E seats showing.

You are right, but I regularly fly this route and CE is definitely row 1 to at least row 5...

CE cabin size is dynamic. At the moment I guess they are not seeing enough forward booking demand to move the curtain beyond row 3, but if more book they will move it back further - something to consider if you always think there is more than 3 rows of CE as you may wish to avoid rows 4-5 in ET in case you get curtain shifted at a later stage.

Cheers, thanks for the info!

Just curious whether anyone has had issues with Avios not posting to their BAEC account when flying AS on routes that were previously operated by Virgin America? I recently flew LAS - SFO - LAS on Alaska and I should have earned Avios for these flights but after two weeks nothing has posted. I have looked at the earnings calculator on ba.com and it throws an error saying it doesn't recognise that airline / route combination. It will show Avios earnings for AS routes such as LAS - SEA. It's a trivial number of Avios so I am not overly fussed at the loss and I really don't want to have to start filling in forms and sending faxes as that seems to be the only way to claim these missing Avios. However, it would be helpful to know if these former Virgin America routes are currently excluded from earnings.

Just looking for a quick sanity check:

If I want to book a Qantas flight to MEL and earn BAEC TP / Avios should I book via the BA website or QF? If I use the latter, can I move the QF points to Avios?

Similarly, if I were to use Qatar instead which is the best site to book via?

You'll need to book this via the QF website. I don't think that the BA website will sell you a cash ticket for a QF flight(s) on its own.

If you warn QF points for the QF flights, you will not be able to move them to BAEC or any Avios scheme. If you want to earn Avios and (BAEC) TP, you must make sure that you only earn them from the outset. You give your BAEC number to QF when you book; make sure you do not give them your QFFF number or any other frequent flyer number by accident, as another number can in practice sometimes be very hard to remove effectively after it's gone in to the booking.

A quicky that I don't think warrants its own thread. I have some TopCashBack credit coming from booking.com reservations. According to TCB I cannot cash this out to BA or Avios but it might be possible if I split my payout. Anybody got any idea how to do this? I cannot work it out
