nope!!you are going to want to add those together and then multiply by 4 just to begin with!!!

But that's not all...there are many other factors that are included when they consider who to make prem...but do not consider even thinking about the possibility of asking about how to get it unless you are putting through that sort of rev through to begin with..with the potential to do a lot more...sorry to be blunt but otherwise you end up with disappointment!

Well, I still think GGLs should get access to the CCR, so there!

Now having known two Prems (Not sure if they still are and don't like to ask - just in case....) one was a FOCM and the other actually controlled a firm that did channel significant spend to BA's coffers and told me that was why they had it. I know someone else who despite being chairperson of a company that had (at the time) an eyewatering amount of BA stock under their control they didn't get one. The reason for this was that they were chairperson of the firm but that was a subsidiary of a financial institution and the top brass in the parent company got the darker cards.

I said they should threaten to reduce the holdings in BA to 1 share, and say they were going to sell it all at once, (thus causing a massive drop in BA's share price) to see if that made any difference to the request. Strangely they didn't want to do this

Hope you get the full benefits of it Abstract1, and if you need a home for the silver card.........I'm sure you'll find one.

That solves that one then...at last! Thanks for sharing.

A big ^ first of all to Abstract1 for getting past some of the negativity towards his comments and status in this thread and having the patience to continue answering questions.

With regards to the full benefits being asked above, I would be particularly interested if there is any mention of special treatment when a Prem card holder travels with a stroller

Very good....I wonder whether stroller will become almost a profanity on this board

Until the next hot/funny/controversial * topic comes along. I seem to remember lots of threads where scorpions were dropped in to posts wherever possible

* - delete as appropriate

Hold on there!...i don't know for sure that they all start the same....it brings me back to an earlier post where someone asked a 'fake' premier to prove what his status by saying what the first 4 numbers of the card were!!!! so actually i cannot say for sure whether we all have the same first numbers!!!

Yikes! That's a lot of travel, even in F! Hope for your sanity that the travel gets spread wiiiiiiidely

Seriously, congrats on the status. And more (and more serious) congrats for creating companies that are performing well enough to allow you to spend that much on travel alone. Entrepreneurship will get us out of the current economic mess so well done!!^^^

Have a search back through 'Premier membership number' or similar topics (I will try to dig it out myself if I get time) - this is correct, mentioned somewhere by a BA insider. 3xxx I think it might be, with the second digit indicating if you're a lifetime PREM (9?) or a annual one (6?).

Premier Spend and Card

I just delved back into my training materials, and despite wondering to myself, why on earth I kept some of that crap... I did find...

Premier Card Holders represent revenue of around 1.3m plus...

How to recognize a Lifetime Premier and an "Annual" is through the Expiry date of the card. Lifetime memberships, who were given the status before September 1992 all share a common Expiry date, where as "Annual" card holders will have a real expiry date on their account and card.

There is no mention of the card number its self in my information, but not saying that is not correct.
