There are a lot of variables here. If OP is with checked luggage this gets very tight and even less flexible on the day.

Cauchy, I believe you are correct. I looked it up too 18 months or so back. According to what rules I could see there was no specific restriction in BAEC or CoC to avios only bookings. I was GGL at...

When I had CCR card I valued the JFK access (big step up over F-lounge there) plus I was doing a lot of Euro Traveller late afternoon/evenings; so got to choose between T5 CCR and GF which was great...

Norwegian have not been showing LAS for some time now. The booking window has been open long enough for Oct/Nov/Dec.

I'll miss you by day! I've found BA South Africa to be pretty helpful on the phone, however, not to rely on entirely as a Mon-Fri 9 to 5 sort of operation.
The BA South Africa website is flakiness...

I make it:
The OP was informed at less than 7 days, was offered re-routing from DXB, which departs 20 min earlier, and arrives into LHR 15 mins earlier.

OP hasn't mentioned the timing of the flight from NYC arriving into LHR. A 7am arrival into T5 finds the next flight up to INV at 16:30 or so, I'd be wanting my luggage pronto at T5, to be fair, and...

The 45k max relates to the 10k+15k+20k stay bonuses; the double points are not limited as far as I'm aware.

Overall some good points in this promo; the second stay kicker before double points is a...

Given your ticket did cost Eur400 more, presumably return, then I think that is worth taking up with whoever you booked with.
The ZAR600 (or 800 voucher) seems to be a standard action for getting...

All I know is the view's better with the blinds up! 64 and 62 are great seats. At the margins some pluses and minuses between each. I don't care for the wing/engines blocking part of my view every...

The main difference will be the higher Carrier Imposed Surcharge (YQ) between Economy ticket paid and new ticket; there may or may not also be a phone in fee tacked on.

The drop from GGL

@ OP. Good post.
I recently dropped from GGL myself. All's still fine :).

Another vote for the Eastbound dayflights from the US, other airlines have 'em too; very Y-policy friendly.
