Will I lose my extra baggage allowance?

Apologies ..... I have searched for an answer on here and BA.com, but with no success

I am currently gold status and I have booked a flight from BOS to LHR in business in a few months. So the booking is showing as having a baggage allowance of 3 bags (the normal 2 for Business Class and an extra bag as a gold exec club member).

However, by the time I fly I will be silver - as (like a lot of people) with COVID restrictions I haven't been able to fly enough to retain gold status

Will the badges allowance be recalculated when I lose gold? So only 2 bags by the time I fly? or is the baggage allowance 'locked in' at the time of booking?

(This is probably the only time in over 10 years when I know I will need 3 suitcases!)

Thank you, in anticipation, for any help

Jonathan

It's based on status when you fly unfortunately. Are you not covered by status extensions?

Not at the moment no. I'll just miss it. I'm assuming I'll be 'soft landed' to solver before the flight unless they extended the period where they extend the current status.
