2 Adults 1 Child tickets CMB-PHL-CMB R Class, also signed up for X2 promo for the 2 adults and the kid miles get posted to mine account because of family account.

My PC number was entered when we flew CMB-PHL and received the miles right away but I need to claim the miles for my wife and son. Since we have already flown the first segment about 3 weeks ago, is my only option now to credit this to PC? Or can I request BAEC avios for both the wife and the son? Do I file a claim with BAEC?

If I had known about the lousy availability I would have credited everything to BAEC from the get go.
You won't be able to claim for yourself anymore. For your wife and son, so long as no FF number was put in during the flight then yes you can credit this to BAEC, however, the accounts in their names have to be opened before the flight was taken, so you cannot create new accounts and attempt to credit a previous flight to their account. Hope this helps.

FYI you can still change your FF number for your second segment and credit that to BAEC.

In that situation, BA will most likely charge you at the gate if you want to board. It may slip through, but don't count on it.

Actually would not mind paying for it, if there is a chance that it might go through. I'm considering booking into CE for ARN-LHR - because of the timing, having lounge access/meal on board would be good. Thanks!

BA's CE fares include baggage anyway, so it's only an issue if you book an economy HBO fare. I also expect you to be charged for the bag by BA if you do that. Be aware that baggage fees on BA are substantially higher if you add them after making the initial booking or at the airport

Last I heard somebody adding a bag at the airport with BA it was 60GBP per bag. Don't know if that is normal, but it was a couple not aware they were on HBO, now needing to cough up 120 GBP extra for their weekend trip to London.

Yes it's expensive, especially when the cost of including baggage at the time of booking is usually only GBP 10-15 each way.

The baggage inclusive fare also allows free same day changes on the day of travel, which is useful insurance in case of any problems with the inbound QR flight.

How about the piece policy that BA operates vs QR? Coming in on QR I have 40+10kg and there is no piece limit, only a weight limit, whereas BA operates a 2x23kg baggage policy for CE. Say I check 3 pieces of luggage totalling 46kg, would this go through?

Club Europe on BA is actually 2 x 32kg. You may get more on top of that depending on your oneworld status

Best ask on the BA forum for experience on being able to check an extra piece of luggage within the overall weight allowance.

Transferring Qpoints/Qmiles to other OneWorld airline?

We're thinking of consolidating our loyalty points to another OneWorld airline since most of our travel is within Europe. Is there a guide or FAQ on transferring Qpoints/Qmiles to British Airways or Finnair? Any comments on which would be the better option among those two?

Generally transferring airline miles is very limited.. See your airline account as a final stop for points.

Specifically Qmiles does not transfer to BA or AY Nor the other direction.

Thanks CPH-Flyer, guess we'll just look into spending those points somehow.

Just checking which of these is Q suites. It says both are A350-900 although I've read both flight numbers are Q suites, seems weird to have two of them going within 25 minutes of eachother. Isn't QR16 meant to be A350-1000?

Hey! First timer on QR in Sept - and first time over this part of the forum!

What are the rules / conditions for changes on non-refundable tickets? I read lots of stories of people changing their departure airport when a schedule change happens in their favour. How does this work? I have a departure from MAN in Sept and hoping to get it from London (either LHR or LGW) if a change happens..

Thanks in advance !
