Add BA Card to Apple Wallet

Hi, Id like to add my BA Gold card to Apple Wallet. I cant find a way to do this in the app. Every other airline has an Add to Wallet button. Does BA have one?

In short, no there isn't one for Apple Wallet .

However a workround of sorts is to save a copy of it under 'Books':

Go into My Executive Club (on BA.com)
Then 'Executive Club Items'.
Get a copy of the card e-mailed to yourself (it arrives as a pdf).
Save the pdf on iPhone into your library in 'Books'

OK thanks. I think I'll just stick to using the BA app. I'll submit feedback. Thank you.

Been there; I sent feedback about this in September 2018 and January 2019, and never even got a reply, let alone obviously the feature.

Yes, after that upgrade the BA App was removed from my iPad. Absolutely useless for the frequent flyer.

Not sure how it would be useful even to an infrequent flyer either!

It is a useful tool for booking flights, so an occasional flyer might find that useful. When the ability to manage bookings and review BAEC activity was stripped out the App lost all efficacy for frequent flyers.

I agree - it's a hopeless iPad app. It gives a new meaning to UPgrade!

I replaced it on my iPad with the iPhone app. It works, but only in landscape mode.

i mean frankly i only ever need my card on the HEX for my free upgrade. and even then, i just used a screenshot pic of my card (since cell service at paddington can be hit or miss) but otherwise cannot really think of a time to need my actual card...so not sure what real benefit there would be to BA to spend resource to allow this functionality when the rest of the app is barely being held together with string and tape!
