Thumbs up BA offer for US based Flyertalkers

Hi guys,

We are running a short offer for all our flyertalkers based in the US.

Feel free to share with friends/colleagues. If this proves to be popular, then we will look at running offers for UK and other regions.

www.ba.com/flyertalk

Comments/thoughts welcome.

Kind regards,

Dilly

There is a certificate error when clicking that link which might not instill confidence for some that this is genuine.

I'm sure it looks very interesting though.

Well having amended the domain name to britishairways.com rather than ba.com the certification issue goes away and indeed it looks like a really good offer (although they are one-way fares only so maybe not as great as I first thought..). Shame I am not US based... Have to say I am v surprised to see special offers for flyertalkers but am in no way at all complaining..!

Fingers crossed, if this offer goes down well, BA might be able to line something up in the future for other countries

Ok, I must be doing something wrong. I click the link above, it directs me to this address http://www.britishairways.com/travel...club/_gf/en_us I then login but do not see anything that references a flyertalk specific deal. I click on current offers and see an exclusive offer but seems to be something different than listed above. What I am screwing up?

Nope, maybe I will clear my cache. After you login, does it specify something specific to flyertalk?
