Question Transferring Avios from IB denied?

It looks like something has changed at IB and I can only transfer FROM BA to IB


Is this a new restriction?

Do you have a household account? If so, it's not new.

We recently signed up for a household account, so this must be it!
Is there anywhere I can read up on getting around this restriction?

More importantly, if you want a work around, create an AerClub account (if you don't have one yet) and use that as go between the IB and BA accounts.

Yes, very simple. Opening an AerClub or Vueling account. Make sure all details match exactly.

Then transfer from IB to the AerClub/Vueling account then to BA. Took me a while to get all 3 synced, but now it's super fast. Can transfer between in less than a minute

So exactly where on the Vueling site is there a page to move anything? I cannot see it.

Honey - I'm abject - how did I miss that? Will you forgive me this once? I will see what happens - I've had a new kitchen put in the house in France and have been somewhat distracted by the work in general and the Jail Bait who calls him self the Fitter, (he was a Sweetheart - I'd adopt him in a heartbeat!).

Again I'm so sorry for dropping the ball so badly on that one.

No, no, I wondered if you were still having trouble. It is a bit finicky, certainly not intuitive. I mean if you have a Vueling frequent flyer account you would start looking at Vueling's own website. By all means reach out for more help, if you are struggling (and even if you are not struggling) there will be a silent lurker grateful for any and all information.

[I've just told Andrew Neil off for trying to steal my seat in CCR, so that's the competition for FirstWorldProblems here, btw]

Bless you Love! Tell that Andrew Neil that I'll be in there with my hairbrush if he annoys you further. Where are you off to tonight?

I love Northumberland - Newcastle holds many recent happy memories for me. Here is Beautiful Brittany the rain is lashing against the windows as I try to get the new oven and Microwave to work!

Safe journey home Love
