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
Were adding 12 months extra onto your Executive Club membership so you have more time to enjoy your benefits, whenever youre 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.

Whats more, it will be even easier to retain your status next time youre up for renewal, as weve 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]

You'll still need a minimum of 2 eligible flights for Bronze and 4 for Silver.

NB: These reduced qualification/requalification thresholds apply until 31 December 2022, regardless of when your membership year ends. They won't show on the BA app or website these will still say you need 300/600/1500 tier points but should you pass the reduced threshold for a higher tier, your level will increase as normal. If you requalify on an existing tier, your status will be extended by the end of January 2023.

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, weve applied 6-month expiration extension to any current vouchers.

See link to BA site for further FAQs.

You've already had the extension that's now being afforded to the following three-month cohort.

Same here. I raised via GGL desk a few days ago, they were looking in to it. Today I get my Dec GGL status extended and an email from GGL team to confirm. Feels like they finally sorted the IT issue!

Likely the last such extension.....

Recently hit Gold for the first time from Silver with TP year ending July 22 - my app says "You have retained Gold" (which is clearly not the case) and shows a 30 Aug 23 expiry date - I assume this is correct notwithstanding the fact that there is some confusion whether I have attained or retained Gold? Thanks!

Assume that's a typo for 31st August 2023, but otherwise yes - that is the expected expiry date for a July '22 member in your circumstances.

Is it only 450 Tier Points for Silver till end 2022 ?

I've got an 8th June Tier Point reset date.

If I was to earn 450 Tier Points after 8th June would that give me Silver all the way till 2024?
Can't quite get my head around all the updates of late.

Strikes me that a BA Holiday trip in Business over to the likes of Athens (EDI-LHR-ATH 40/80) with double Tier points on offer would give me Silver in a single trip!

That could be a neat trip as I have 6 of us all booked on a single trip to MCO next year and this would allow me to reserve seats for us all at no cost.

if you earn 450 points between june 9th and dec 31st, and take the 4 qualifying flights then i believe that yes you would get silver for the rest of this qualifying year and the whole of the next qualifying year.

Yes it is possible with the double tp offer that this can be done on one trip. I am on a trip at the moment that does not include double tp but i will get 560tps. Jus tnot the 4 qualifying flights

Thanks, that's quite some deal.
I can get Silver for 2 of us & 5 nights in Athens for 1,605.

With 2 of us and another 4 travelling next year in Y that would get 4 of us into the lounge and perhaps 6 if a lounge agent was kind to the 2 kids.

Does the 300 threshold to RENEW silver apply to everyone in their current collection year? The main text on the BA web page indicates yes, but the drop down indicates only Jul-Sept renewers... This is confusing

my reading of "We have automatically applied the reduced threshold to Silver Members with Tier Point Collection Year end dates in July, August and September 2022. If you collect 300 Tier Points by the end of your current Tier Point Collection Year," is that it is ony for July August and September renewals

as a march renewal you were extended till 2023 and have till year end to renew silver on 450 TP plus 4 eligible flights
