For any BA flyers out there, note that this will earn 140 x 3 x 2 = 840TP.

One of these, one regular QR J return, plus 4 BA flights, and you're basically Gold!

What do you mean? Renewing BA Gold takes 1,500 TPs.

I simply meant:

840TP for this trip
+ 560TP for a "normal" QR trip to Asia
+ 4x BA flights @ 10TP each
= 1440 TP which is 96% of the Gold requirement.

Thanks for clarification, it's an outstanding fare for the TPs earned. Wish there was something similar for the other way round, originating CGK.

Sorry I'm a bit lost here;
FRA to DOH gives 140 tier miles
DOH to CGK gives 140 tier miles
Return trip 560 tier miles.

Hey Henry,
The routing is FRA-CMB-CGK that's why )

Calculations for Finnair plus

Interesting to see the calculations for BA. AY it seem FRA-DOH-CMB-CGK in J would results in 28800 points for return trip. For gold in Finnair plus you need 80000 so it seems BA program rewars enough to get 50% of points required to gold whereas finnait rewards only around 30%

Yup... BA tier qualifying is segment based, whereas AY is points based.
