AS OF 11 July 2022:

BRITISH AIRWAYS PROTECTS TIER STATUS FOR ITS LOYAL EXECUTIVE CLUB MEMBERS
  • Gold Guest List with renewal dates July-December 2022 will be extended for a further 12 months
  • Gold members with renewal dates July-September 2022 will be extended for a further 12 months
  • Silver and bronze do not get any further renewal
  • However, Silver members with renewal dates July-September 2022 will given a 50% reduction in the amount of tier points needed (From 600 to 300 TPs)
  • Everyone else still gets the 25% reduction in tier points until 31 December. This also applies if you want to qualify for a higher status level.


See post 796 for further details https://www.flyertalk.com/forum/32452931-post796.html

20 Sep 21 Update - see post #3594 onwards

21 Dec 21 Update - see post #3942 onwards

20 Apr 22 Update - see post #4483 onwards

The graph Illustrated below covers simple renewal milestones (collection year start/end dates) onto a blue bar (mid blue represents your current membership year; dark blue represents the extension periods). This does not touch the effect tier jumps have on the extension end dates. You can find confirmation of the extension being added to your BAEC account via "My Executive Club". This is signified by the "Card expiry date"


Updated 20 September 2021


Coronavirus: How the Executive Club is supporting you
We’re adding 12 months extra onto your Executive Club membership – so you have more time to enjoy your benefits, whenever you’re ready to fly.

All members will benefit, starting with those who have a Tier Point collection end date of July 2020, through to June 2021.

What’s more, it will be even easier to retain your status next time you’re up for renewal, as we’ve decreased the amount of Tier Points needed by 25%. This is the same for upgrades thresholds too, making that next Tier more achievable.

This results in lower Tier qualification thresholds, as shown below:

Bronze: 225 Tier Points or 18 eligible flights
Silver: 450 Tier Points or 37 eligible flights
Gold: 1125 Tier Points
Gold Guest List: 3,750 Tier Points (to attain), 2,250 Tier Points (to retain) [not in the original email but understood to be true]


To ensure our Members still have the opportunity to use their Gold Upgrade Vouchers, Companion Vouchers and Travel Together Tickets earned via a British Airways credit card, we’ve applied 6-month expiration extension to any current vouchers.

See link to BA site for further FAQs.

To say thank you for all your loyalty and support, we’ve added 12 months extra onto your Gold Guest List Executive Club membership. So you have more time to enjoy your benefits, whenever you’re ready to return to the skies.
your status is extended to 2022 with a card expiry date of 31 May 2022.

Partner: year end 8 May. Did not get the email. No extension. Didn't re-qualify for Gold. Doesn't seem to be getting a Gold extension to 8 May 2021.
I haven't seen anything to suggest partner cards won't be within scope of the extension, however, the status is to current status, what is their status now? silver?

Count me in on the confused side as well.

Myself : Year end 9 June. No email. Card expiry in July 2021. (I had assumed "through June 2021" was inclusive of the month of June, hence qualifying for extension through 2022.)
Partner : Year end 9 December. Got the email. Status extended to January 2022.

I think the uncertainty was because everything is about status level extension. whereas CCR card is not a status level, it is a benefit. anyway it has been confirmed the 25% reduction applies to CCR cards.

This definitely needs some clarification!

Per Raffles on Head for Points:



This clearly states that the more generous reading is correct. In my case, my current year ends July 2020, but I have already status to July 2021 (with card expiring end of Aug 2021). This would be extended to end of Aug 2022. TPRun would likewise have theirs extended by a year, if I read this correctly.

It also addresses the 'next year' Tier point query.

If this is correct, I'm a very happy bunny indeed.

Up and down rollercoaster...!

yes i assume it would apply to your 8 June 2021 year end date, and your current status would now be extended to 31 July 2022.

All members will benefit, starting with those who have a Tier Point collection end date of July 2020, through to June 2021.

Just got the email, membership extended by one year ( no big deal as only needed 20 TPS to retain silver. My year ends November 2020 so am assuming this is extended to November 2021. Also offered 25% reduction for next year maybe go for gold if flying possible

I'm starting reading this thread from the bottom, so I don'y know if this has been posted earlier - from the BAEC tiers & benefits page:

Members whose Tier Point collection end date was in May or June 2020, who did not meet the reduced qualification requirement for their Tier will have the 12-month extension applied to their new Tier once their current card expiry date has passed.

Long renewed for bronze at 345 points due to currently (had to make it before early december)-

Does this mean I can qualify for silver (For the first time in my life) if i hit 450 points before December then? All I need is basically 1 WTP flight from Sin- LHR and another domestic on lowest ticket with tier point earnings

When you reset on 08 April 2021, regardless of the tier points that you would have earned you will retain Gold Guest List and your Concorde Room card until April 2022.

Includes Mrs Hedwig who obtained Gold for the first (and possibly only) time in January, with a June membership date. She now has a further 2 years of status and more chance of extending beyond that with the reduced requirement. Came off very well compared to Miss Hedwig, who ends the year on 400TP and but for another 20TP, which we could have easily earned with hindsight, would have been Silver for 2 years and instead remains Bronze.

Meanwhile as GFL with no realistic chance of GGL or above in the near future, this makes no difference to me whatsoever

No complaints from us though, and congratulations to the winners
