  • 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)

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"

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.

Hmm.. This doesn't yet help me at all. Dec renewal, trending for GGL, already on 1600 TP.

I guess this frees up the BAEC team from everyone prematurely asking for things..!

So the blanket extension that a number of us have been predicting for some time has now been applied. Good to hear and glad I didn't spend too much time worrying about it all.

So where are all those flyers who have ripped up their BAEC cards in protest due to not getting an extension? Time to eat some humble pie?

It seems to me that BA did what was necessary as soon as it became clear that the restrictions on flying and the limited opportunity to attain and make use of status were going to be with us for a significant time to come.

So I finished last week on 755 - and my card says Gold until 31 Jul 2020

Will I get a bonus year of silver (urgh) or am I being retained at Gold ?!


*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.

Just had an email from BAEC to say my silver status (August end date) has been renewed for 12 months. Considering I haven't earned any TP this year, and had several trips cancelled in recent months, I can't complain about that.

Anyone have an idea if this renewal also applies to those with CCR card?

It seems to me that BA realised is the only airline that has not offer a status extension and that loyal customers might be a bit unhappy and dissapointed. Even Air Koryo has offered an extension

I'm guessing, unfortunately, as you didn't meet the reduced tier point requirements to retain Gold, you will be getting a bonus year of Silver.

I do also have a vested interest in knowing the answer to this. Given the CCRs are shut currently, I can't believe it wouldn't but it would be useful to have clarification.
