Unfortunately I'm finding that the military service fares are now exactly the same as the normal fares with no discount applied.

I have sent you a PM in response to yours.

The offer only applies (as per the t&c's I sent previously) to Euro/World Traveller (not HBO) and Club Euro/World and on BA operated metal only - not on codeshares on AA metal etc. Nor BA Holidays.

Barney.

The link I have to the Military Service Fares page now says ďWe regret that the special discount offer is currently unavailableĒ and password I have (granted itís from 2019) doesnít work.

Am I looking at the wrong site?

Dear BA forum members,

As per the t&c’s of the BA/Defence Discount Service (DDS) discount offer (and BA’s wider Armed Forces Corporate Covenant commitment), the discount is only available to members of the Defence Discount Service and/or HM Armed Forces/Ministry of Defence staff.

Sorry to have to say this, but I am receiving a number of PM’s/messages from people requesting the DDS/BA discount link/password who are obviously not DDS members or members of HM Armed Forces/MOD staff.

To be clear, if you request the link and/or password, you will be asked a question that only bona-fide DDS members can answer before you will receive the offer link/password details.

Alternatively, the link/password can be sent to an official MOD (@mod.gov.uk) e-mail address.

I am happy to forward the link/password details to entitled personnel once entitlement is established, but if you are not so entitled, please do not ask for the link/password.

Thank you for your co-operation in this matter.

Barney.

Thank you for any help

DDS BA Discount Code

Hi Barney,

Thanks for the help you're offering with the DDS discount code. I've just joined DDS after speaking to BA about MOD discount. They told me to book through the DDS website but the link isn't there. I've subsequently found your thread. I'm happy to provide proof of DDS membership if you could send me a PM that I can reply to, rather than me posting on an open thread.

Thanks for any help you can give,
Chapsters
