I hit 60 nights on 12th June but have still not had the bonus. Chased the Diamond team several times and all I get is that "there's a problem with the system". Incredibly poor, espeically when...

Interestingly, I only came here to see if anyone had commented on the article linked to below (woman with baby told to leave the lounge by staff) because I thought it was really out of character for...

Iím always slightly disappointed when they donít have any decent promotional stuff on. Unlike goods given out at commuter hotspots, the Flounge offerings are normally more premium. Iíve especially...

We did that before after tagging on Greece to an ex-EU. Retuning from SIN via DOH, OSL and then LHR on the way to ATH. Got the bus to the bus station and then slept at the front of the queue for the...

Yep. It seems that there are more and more reasons not to go through INT-DOM connections at T5.

I also saw two people that were the row in front of me on my previous flight get to the Flounge 10...

I'm travelling to SIN on the A380 in J with my wife and barely-under-two-year-old at the end of the month. There seems to be plenty of availability in J (unfortunately not in F UuA possibilities)....

I think it going a little beyond this for those of us in the "regions". Our return PEK-LHR-EDI in F ended in the least premium way you could imagine. 30 min queue at immigration and 20 min queue at...

Out of interest, do you put your connection in jeopardy if you fully exit to go back through the First Wing? Returning from Beijing to connect to Edinburgh earlier in the year was a nightmare. But is...

LHR-AUH-LHR in F = £1,137 for 2 adults and one lap child.
EDI-LHR-AUH-LHR-EDI = £1,568 for 2 adults and...

Is there an option to do TPE-HKG-PEN on CX instead? Also, have you looked at the actual cost of flights, as TPE is a good origin for low cost flights in J (MH and CX).

Iím the same. Iíve used to the Avios as per their T&Cs (transferring them to BA and spending them).

Happy to argue this with them. They added terms to the promo after the fact.

If you hit 120 nights, does that mean that you have already qualified for next year? There's no other requirements to be met?

Do they prompt you that you can do this? Or do you need to be proactive and contact them? I hit 100 nights a while ago but never received anything. Like you, I'm unsure who I could give it to anyway!

Yep - the only time I'd book or POUG in CE was to ensure that I hit gold. Otherwise there's so little point.

I keep an Avios usage excel to track value, which is based on the maximum that I would...

[email protected] but got an instant ping back from [email protected] to say it had been received (and that Thanksgiving holidays may cause a few days delay).

It tok less than 10 mins between me sending an email about my missing stay/point to receiving an email back and it being credited. Impressively quick (although I'd rather I didn't have to chase!).

Totally agree. Maybe not going out of my way so far as to go to a different country, but certainly new cities or staying in areas that I wouldn't normally. My wife and I have had some great...

I claimed for missing nights (I assumed related to the IT update) but nothing has come through yet. Will be interesting if people have had to chase these claims - as I've never had to in the past.

I read on a blog that it closes from 9am-4.30pm. That was in March - dunno if the flight timetable has changed.
