There's a llama in there too.
Still lost on me. Can someone explain it for a person like me with limited capacities for undertanding that sort of stuff.

So the credits for Monty Python's Holy Grail had "subtitles" that get more and more ridiculous. Then there's the aforementioned sackings. Then the credits change in style and there's lots of llamas listed in the credits.

A video for you:

If they have no professional affiliation with BA Executive Club - being a different company, then BAEC isn't the one at fault in spite of your faulty logic.

I never said that BAEC were at fault. Someone posted that this has nothing to do with BA, I took this to be questioning why I had posted in this forum. And I said it has everything to do with BAEC, and this is a forum about BAEC, not just about BA.

Anyone keep getting promotional emails that read like BA press releases from Reward Flight Finder?

I'm sure I've unsubscribed from them about 5 times now.

Yeah their unsubscribe doesn't work. I luckily used Apple's hide my email service for them so just deleted the email address completely!

I also tried several times to unsubscribe. If it was my business I'd be fixing this quickly -- it's not good for the way they're perceived.

My most recent attempt was yesterday and I ended up on a page that looked as though I might have finally managed it. Fingers crossed.
