thanks! which number did you call for this?

I thought it strange as well, as I read through this thread a few weeks ago! so when the response was that they could either rebook me onto a "BA-operated flight only" or for me to get a full refund and I would have to make a new booking, I was very confused. To be fair this was on twitter, I didn't call as I'm out of the country at the moment and didn't want to rack up calling charges.

i just called my exec number. If you need to keep charges down there is always Skype.

in terms of doing it you may need to remind them it is a joint business route so rebooking on AY should be fine. Ideally rebook under the ba codeshare as you will earn fewer avios on the AY flight number.

Used skype to call and successfully changed the booking ^ It did take quite a while (45 minutes) as the agent also repeated that she would need special permission as they usually could only rebook onto another BA operated flight.....

I need these flights as part of my tier retention, am I correct that since this is a BA marketed flight (rebooked under BA codeshare flight number) this will count towards status?

well done, and yes it will count as you have booked it under the ba codeshare.

Even on AY flight numbers, you'd have earned tier points towards status.

With a BA codeshare on the booking, you will also get BA earnings for avios and it will also count as one of your 2 (for Bronze) or 4 (for Silver and above) qualifying flights.
