Those who are wanting to take advantage of the BA Holiday Double Tier Point promotion should note that the T&Cs have not yet changed and means double TPs may not be awarded for Aer Lingus flights, in fact the BAH T&Cs state that no TPs are awarded for EI flights:

c) The booking must contain British Airways flights including codeshares and British Airways marketed and/or operated flights only. Flights not meeting these criteria within the booking wont be awarded Tier Points. Flights offered as part of a British Airways Holidays package that are provided by other airline partners that do not have a BA flight number will not be eligible. Please note: Flights marketed by British Airways with or without a BA flight number that are operated by Aer Lingus, China Southern or LATAM are not eligible for Tier Points.

I can understand EI flights (with BA code) would be ineligible for the double TPs game.
This comment in the T&C is not referring to base TPs but to the additional double TPs.

I'm very excited for this, particularly for the Emerald Air Exeter flights which I can sometimes swing with work when visiting Dublin
Now I just selfishly need a TP-earning flight between Exeter and London and I'm set

This means that one can fly MAN JFK direct and get TPs.

Leisure travellers may be tempted to have a night or two in a Dublin and skip both the immigration queue at JFK and APD before returning to MAN

In ORD, yes. But I'm not sure about anywhere else.

The price of Dublin hotels right now might mean you'd be better off just paying the UK APD!!!

LBA-BHD-LHR now becomes a possibility as well.
If they open up that to BA holidays I can see some value in that rather than commuting to NCL or MAN.
I wonder who could be interested in that? ...

Yes indeed, but your earlier post only mentioned Flagship Lounges, of which there are only 4, and of which I only know for certain that ORD is actually accessible for EI pax (since 24 January last, after EI moved to ORD T3).

I think Dick Turpin is running the airport hotels. I was quoted over 300 for one night at both the Hilton and Maldron a couple of months ago. Absolutely shocking prices 🤬. A B2B now looks like the best way to avoiding this.

I fly fairly regularly BHX-DUB with Aer Lingus - does this mean i can request tier points from those flights which are eligible are credited to my BAEC account from now on or have i misread it ?
