Collect double Avios on your next ten flights and holidays before 31 December 2018
Register, book and travel before the New Year and you can collect double Avios on all British Airways flights and holidays. This means that for every £1 you spend on a holiday, you will get 2 Avios as well as the double Avios you will collect on your flights. This offer also includes all domestic flights in the UK and within southern Africa. As well as British Airways flights operated by our partners, American Airlines, Iberia and Finnair when travelling between Europe and North America.

What do I need to do?
Register today and ensure that your Executive Club number is included in your next ten eligible bookings. All travel must be completed by 31 December 2018 to collect double Avios. Your double Avios award will be calculated on your base Avios, your cabin and tier bonus will apply as normal.
This offer applies to new bookings made after registration only.
Register, book and fly by 31 December 2018.

Failed for me too. I guess an IT blunder, the T&Cs didn't sound onerous.
Not too fussed for myself, I'm unlikely to book anything else this year anyway, but the other half has 2 or 3 business trips still to arrange.

*Edit* - having logged in anyway, I also have no upcoming bookings apparently (this is a lie)... so their site is definitely having a fun day today.

New BA avios offer

I just received an email from BAEC entitled "Mr Morges1l, double Avios on flights for the rest of 2018 ".

On trying to register, I received the following message "Your registration has been unsuccessful, unfortunately you are not eligible for this offer." I could find no explanation, either online or in the original email!

Good point. Who knows what registration is what. Suggest everyone hold off until they fix something.

Oh dear, good old BA! Same issue for me. Registering takes me to the WW0059 page so is unseccessful. Clicking on Book Now takes me to WW0058 and tells me I'm already registered. Looks like a mix up with links. Sloppy...

Me too now. You can't make this stuff up. Thankfully the software powering the aircraft is a bit more sophisticated (hopefully!)

Same here. Clicked on Register and it said I wasn't eligible. Clicked on Already Registered and it thanked me for registering. Please, BA, can someone think about testing all the links in your emails before you send them?

That worked and I after the e-mail I did as above and got this.

Thank you, Mr PETER01, you are now registered for this offer.

Poor show BA.

Dont count on it. After we all got used to querty keyboards on out loptops and pc's, some genious at Honeywell decided it would be better if they put an abcde keyboard on the flight management computers.

The detailed T+C says base avios only. I can never recall what they are though without looking the rules up. Am I right the base avios points for a WTP or J fare is the same as a Y?

Qualifying flights... So if I book DUB-LHR-JFK departing 28/12 and returning 1/1 do I get the double avios for the 2 sectors in Dec but nothing for the returns?

LOL they swapped the links. What a joke.

Having worked in highly complex IT environments I really do get the challenge, it's not easy at all, but they are really a joke. This is too much.
