BA Illiteracy

From the avios update mail.

All the changes have been made now and they wont affect how you collect Tier Points or spend your Avios.

Correct use of grammar and apostrophes is the difference between knowing your ...., and knowing youre ....!

Im confused, I see the email and the use of the word wont which includes the apostrophe and does appear to be written in English.

Interesting, my initial paste was direct from email, no apostrophe for me.

These tiny things happen with every company all the time. News website, marketing emails, social posts - you'll see small mistakes from all of them. There is so much published these days on so many channels that something will always slip through the net - however rigorous the editorial processes.

I sometimes wonder if this is done deliberately, as it then gives them an excuse to sent a "Whoops, we made a mistake" email a couple of hours later saying the same thing! The mistake is generally something trivial that doesn't impact the main message.

I think you're over-thinking this one! Some fairly junior person will have written it. It will need sign-off (and the process will depend on the company and the email), but there aren't any spelling errors and grammar might be harder to pick up. Especially if it's being signed off in the email client itself. So, whilst this kind of thing will be picked up 99% of the time, it can easily slip through.

This thread is the peak of mediocrity. If a missed comma prompts you to post a new thread, maybe its time to think of a new hobby.
