Ah, that makes a lot of sense, thanks! It's a shame that PVG doesn't have the connection I want :( I guess I'll have to wait another year or two before I can get that sweet 1.5k J ticket to Asia!

I'm booked on an open jaw ticket, but a codeshare connection on the way out, and direct BA operated on the way back in. Does this pre-exclude me from getting a POUG on the leg on the way back.

I was about to book a return from LHR to PEK in J on CA788 and CA855 for April next year. I've been monitoring the prices over the last week, and having checked today, it seems like they changed the...

Yeah, that makes sense. Tbh, I've never bought a full fare "Y" ticket. I find that you can get W or even J in some cases for the price of a full priced Y ticket

Can you provide an example of how a long haul econ yields 140TP? The only instance that happened with me in my examples were the London-China via Doha trip, which required layovers (35TP each...

Yeah, that's very true! Pretty much all those flights were in the lowest econ bucket (other than the China flight, which somehow was both a cheap ticket (~650) and not the lowest TP/segment), and...

A mix really - my main trips were:
LHR-HKG-Australia Return x2
LHR-DOH-China Return (This got me the bulk of my points tbh, 140 TP in total)
LHR-West Coast US Return

Plus a handful of smaller...

Yeah fair - this has been a sort of "gap year" for me, hence the large number of econ segments. I'm about ~250 away from Silver with 2 months to go and not a lot of time to do a points run. I'm...

That's pretty good actually - I didn't consider that BA status could be achieved like that. Mine's been done by ~15 long haul econ segments so I've felt like I've somewhat felt like I've worked for...

Yeah, that's absolutely true - I did forget about the 7 days seat selection: that is very useful. That said, I think every other programme has that (or something similar too). I think I probably...

BA Bronze Useless?

I've managed to qualify for BA Bronze again for the second time just flying economy - I can't help but feel that this tier is a bit useless, particularly compared to some other FF programmes.

I basically only really care about *G status for lounge and airport benefits to make Y a bit more bearable ;)
