From another M!

Best of luck with this. As someone who renewed GGL / CCR as normal with a March year end, I fall into the category which benefited. I can entirely see why those with a July year...

Sorry but that's complete and utter nonsense. The Government hasn't mandated that BA provide substandard catering and cheap wine, BA has taken it upon itself to do that. Proper catering, provided in...

OK thanks for the clarification. As I said, I've never had to cancel one but useful to know.

Is that definitely true? Despite being GGL for several years, I've never had to test it. I had actually assumed it wasn't true.

I can completely see why members with a July 8th year end who had re-qualified as normal might feel somewhat hard done by here. A GGL / CCR card member with a July 8th year end wishing to remain at...

I'm with you on the 'sitting on losses' issue. If you have 100K of IAG stock that was worth 220K 6 months ago, there is no point in worrying about the past. You now have an asset worth 100K and...

The other thing to consider is whether moving the money into other equities or funds that might either be safer or offer a more realistic prospect of a gain in your timescale is a good plan.

This thread has, for the first time since lockdown, really made me want to get back on a plane. Thank you BA for all the hard work that has gone into this.

Anyone who uses the phrase 'babies' in the context of the month their TP collection year ends in is being downgraded to Blue for Life with immediate effect. Or so I've heard.

No. Any Tier Points earned between now and March 8th 2021 count only towards lifetime status. From March 9th 2021, you need to collect 1125 Tier Points if you wish to retain Gold beyond April 30th...

I've just checked and my card expiry date is now 30 Apr 2022 (GGL / CCR renewed in March 2020). So exactly as expected.

You might want to check the article you are quoting again carefully. Rob is quite clear and what he says does not tally with what you are saying.

And how much confidence do staff have in Unite? Can't see why it's much higher; they have done an absolutely terrible job of representing BA staff.

I'd be extremely surprised if the length of the transition period was extended a day beyond December 31st 2020. Anyway, I digress. Duty Free back on intra-European routes would be a definite bonus.
