Will this apply to bookings made using the Gold Guest List joker redemption?

Excellent offer by the way

Please note that this sale is not, in any way, connected to the fact that BA has just changed its reporting policy to include BA Miles seats when it repots to the City how many seats it sells each month.

Honestly.

No connection at all.

BA has no intention of artificially conning the City into thinking its seat loads are higher than they really are by flooding the market with BA Miles redemptions.

No way, not us guv.

Exactly - I want to lock a destination in at the Sale rate now for a flight next year - as I do not yet know my exact travel dates I will select any old date available and move it to my required dates at a later point in time -- is that OK / achievable ?

No, I mean: Can we make changes to the booking after the sale ends on 28 Nov...

Unbelieveable - a week after booking my next 2 for 1: F out to HKG, J back.

How long does it normally take after cancelling a 2 for 1 booking for the voucher to be reactivated and the miles to recredit?
