1. If INV-LHR is cancelled, BA are likely on the hook for 600 and overnight accommodation and/or rerouting costs. I've had it twice before where I've made my own way to LHR in similar circumstances...

When I renew Global Entry, do I keep the same Known Traveller Number as before? If not, does that mean I have to reapply for a new ESTA, given that this is one of the bits of info on there? I have to...

My logic would be that you should get your WT TPs plus 50 TPs, because you were op-upped to WT+ and paid to go from there to CW, so should only get the difference between those two on top of your...

Yes, might well normally be the case. Luckily not the case here, as corroborated by the OTA and BA customer services.

As the lesson here seems to be that if the absolute sum involved is not...

I think it makes sense to post this story/request for advice on this thread rather than create a new one.

TL;DR - good OTA, bad BA Travel Trade, leading to me getting completely done over on a...

That's a plausible explanation! Given that the entire trip is indeed on BA, does this mean that if UuA space is still available at T-24, they might then be able to do it?

Ah. I read that as part of the BA Holidays bit and in any case wasn't sure if IB marketed but BA operated was the same as the other way round as written there. Okay, guess I'm stymied!

Thanks Karfa. From your excerpt though, this still seems eligible. The whole ticket is 125 stock but TA issued. All legs are BA operated. One leg, which I'm not trying to upgrade, is IB marketed.

OTA booking, can't UuA

I booked NTE-LHR-JFK-LHR in WT+ (K/T classes) via Expedia for a fraction of what BA.com was quoting for either that or returning to NTE. It's on 125 stock, all operated by BA, but the outbound is on...

Yeah, insufficient. I got 5,000 Avios today for a non-descending footstool in WT+ LHR-TLV, by way of comparison. This surely must be worth at least the same.
