New BAEC cards on Reddit?

This was posted on reddit - New BA cards? Not an official release that's for sure. Deflection from HK closure letter?

Why do they have to make the gold one so ugly. Tempted to stay on Silver if that's what's on offer

I imagine the vast majority of BA customers don't care about the design of the airlines reward programme card or the closure of the HK base to be honest.

It looks very much like a cartoon poo with a fly hanging around it, I must say.

I wonder if these are being launched to try and distract us from the pending Avios devaluation?

The Gold one looks oddly Christmas themed.

Google IAG Results Presentation and on page 32. Who knows what this means but there have been rumours.

Enhance IAG’s common integrated platforms

Fleet: entry into service of new generation A350s and A320neos
Avios transformation
– Digital roll-out
– Hybrid cloud

Back on topic, the Gold and Silver cards look ok but Bronze looks awful!

Whatever style they were going to be they were always going to be heavily scrutinised on flyertalk, positive or negative.

Transformation sounds a lot like enhancement to me!
