Different Information BA App and BA Website

Last June, i reached the Silver status.
But for some reason, on the website it says: "For Gold Memebership you need an additional 580 TP" but at the BA Apps it says: "Retain Silver: 580 TP and 4 eligible flights"
My doubt here is:
1. I already have 6 eligible flights for accrual year (it ends Apr 30, 2019)
2. By the time i reached silver, i´ve got 4 eligible flights.

Do i need additional 4 eligible flights (in my case, 2 more) to retain Silver status? Or it´s just a bug in the BA App
As far as i know, you need 300 / 600 / 1500 TP for each tier but only 4 eligible flights. You don´t need, say, 12 eligible flights and 1500 TP to reach Gold status.

Need your expertise and better understanding...

Thank you in advance

This is very simple: the app is buggy.

Never trust the app. Perhaps never trust an app.

Miles to AA account but eligible flight to BAEC

This year I am attempting to renew my AA EXPlat but also if possible achieve BA Gold. I have a series of flights for the rest of this year that should provide the miles (for AA EXP) and the TPs for BA gold that I would need.

I have an upcoming itinerary YYZ-LHR-JNB (return). The flights are a mix of I and A class on BA metal but with AA flight numbers. I want to apply the miles to my AA account. However, is there a way for the BA flights to count as eligible flights for gold status?

Thanks.

Hello all. Quick question to make sure I understand currently rules correctly.
Domestic flight operated by AS will earn:
  • Nothing if booked under AA prefix
  • Will earn Avios if booked as AS flight.
Is that accurate?

A little question: Arriving from DEL in F cabin and connecting to another transatlantic flight in CW cabin, Can I still enter the Concorde room with my F boarding pass?

as long as you are arriving on BA F and your onward CW flight departs T5 then yes that's fine. keep your F inbound bp as you'll need to show that too at CCR reception.

Not sure if it’s been asked somewhere. As understood there is soft landing for BAEC, say from silver down to bronze. How much does it take to regain silver in the bronze year? 300 + 2 BA flights or 600 + 4 BA flights?

You only get the status not the TPS and segments, you start at zero for those.

choosing travelling class?

I am sure that the question was asked before but I was not able to find it.
Is there a way to buy a ticket on line and chose the exact class in economy? I am planning a trip to Amsterdam. My employer would pay the economy ticket and needs to see a clear an simple economy ticket (so no 'pay and upgrade with avios' or things like that), but I plan to upgrade to business because I need the 80 TP to stay silver. BA is currently selling online only tickets in O for the various flights I could take, which could not be upgraded. Is the only way to buy a NON Q,O,G ticket to call BA? or is there a tool online to do so?
Thanks for your help!

You can’t play around with the ticket classes online. You can use Matrix to find the price of other buckets, but to book them you must call.

You can tick the ‘flexible’ button and be assured you’ll not be the in the bottom buckets.
