The double / triple / whatever miles offer for April - any evidence in accounts yet?

My deal was double status miles for April, which fortunately included EDI-LHR-AMM & vv in business.

But no sign of anything credited to the account.

Anyone else seeing anything, or not?

The thing that gets me is, what's going to happen to the old upstairs DC lounge?

Who's paying for it? (I guess not BD, otherwise they wouldn't be closing it.)

What alternative use could BAA...

This reminds me of an occasion a few years back on an early morning EDI-LHR. Might even have been the first one.

That's only true for the first two years of membership. After that you would need to fly another 3000 miles to keep Blue+, otherwise regressing to Blue-.

So there is a difference.

Bag reclaim times at LHR dom T1 these days?

I have a weekend trip down to LHR coming up in a couple of weeks and, since I'm going en famille, will have to check in some bags.

How long is it taking to get them back these days?
