BAEC Silver & Iberia Express

I am pretty sure this has been answered before but I can not find an answer.

I have BAEC Silver and have a flight booked on Iberia Express via the Iberia Express website. Unfortunately I have 3 questions to ask!

Will I get the same benefits I have using BAEC on Iberia Express such as fast track, lounges and priority boarding? I have attempted to add my BAEC membership number on the booking but it keeps removing itself? Will it be a case of doing this at check-in at the airport?

Additionally, will I get tier points/avios for this flight. The flight numbers are I23715 and I23718. I see a page on the BA website I am about only 20 flights away from keeping my silver for another year (sadly will not do it via tier points so gotta hit the 50 flight mark!).

Finally, I have noticed via FR24 that this flight goes into T4 at Madrid. Is it possible to visit the lounge in T4S and go back to T4?

Thanks! This site has a wealth of knowledge but the above has stumped me!

1) Yes, you get all the usual goodies. IBX is an OW affiliate.

2) Not so sure about TP and Avios. I remember that IBX flights under IBX tickets do NOT get credited outside IB program.

3) No, you can't. MAD-LGW departs from H gates in T4 and you'll need to use the T4 Lounge.

There is a significant difference in this thread, but I post a link for completeness. The queries in this thread related to IB Express but booked via Iberia mainline.

Do IB codeshares operated by IB Express metal qualify for the 4 BA flights for Gold?

As ever, it's good to get updated reports!

If Iím not mistaken you should receive TPíS/avios but a reduced amount of avios, providing you attach your BAEC number. It will work but IB system is quite clunky and slow to update!

Pretty sure I have booked I2 flights on the I2 website, and had lounge access, priority boarding, with Tier Points.

Iím damn sure I would have remembered if I didnít!
Im Silver too and need every TP I can get!

hello I have some question on your Iberia express experience.
do you enjoy advance seat selection?
do you have extra free baggage?
Thanks
