BA MAN>LHR>DUB - A few questions for 160 TP

Hello All,

I have a few questions on the below that I'll keep brief for the ease of you busy people.

  1. I am right in thinking this would earn 160TP?
  2. From the Northwest would there be a cheaper way of doing this?
  3. Would this itinerary allow enough time for the relevant turnarounds? If i missed the start of the home leg would BA have to help?
Many thanks all in advance

Yes - but why not just use the BA flight calculator if you are unsure?

Yes; select Economy class, or fly direct on either EI or FR.

Airlines are not in the habit of selling connections that are not feasible. If you do buy all travel on a single ticket, and you cannot make one of the connections, the airline will be required to rebook you.

Thanks for that.

I was confident on the TP value but just wasn't sure if I'd get each segment as I was booking MAN > DUB officially.

Thanks again for this. I meant though is there a cheaper way to earn the 160 TP.

Much appreciated.

If it has to be 160TP, and has to be that day, then it looks like you have the cheapest flight available.

(If, rather than doing all travel on one day, you can take the return on a later date - i.e. requiring a separate ticket from/to DUB - you can bring the price down to 272, though this involves the direct nonstop BA DUB-MAN service so would cut your earnings to 120 TP)
