Thanks for the information, I thought it would be something like that. I imagine if you are giving significant revenue amounts and have a fair shout for Prem, it isn't in BA's interest to turn you down - some people in your position might spit the dummy if they're declined and take the business elsewhere.

I'm unclear what point is being made here. Surely going from Gold to Premier, without passing through GGL, is perfectly feasible, as GGL is a status level based on personal travel patterns, whereas Premier is awarded based on total corporate spend.

Congratulations!

Just, please, do not go making your own tea in the galley! That was my first experience of a Prem Pax back from CPH... Came out of the flight deck (whilst still on the ground) to find him routing around the trollies to find a cup and tea making materials... I did not know what to say!!!

I think this is getting a bit babyish I recomend Abstract 1 to scan all relevant documents proving he's a Premier omitting all personal details and put them up for the world to see especially kepiblanc.

Congratulations ^

But if there are no TPs do you automatically get the two annual GUF2s? Or even more?
