I have a similar experience with my passport (seemingly in good condition) sometimes not working at LHR, but working just fine everywhere else. So, I guess not replacing it, but it can be annoying...

Well, fortunately I had EU261 open in a tab to check, and yes it seems that KARFA is right. My bad :)

So, as it stands, a downgrade doesn't seem to allow you a refund for your trip, should you not...

BA seems to have their own way to compute this and it should come close to 75% of half the fare, maybe minus taxes (but not surcharges as those are abitrary).

If you got a confirmation that you...

I think this is good value as you had to make those trips anyway. To re-qualify for gold at 1080TP I think I will be spending no more than 1400 GBP (and no avios). But that doesn't include hotels...

Even if the e-mail isn't sent, it should still show up on their account if you add their exec club number.

There's a moderate chance. I suspect that you will know whether or not it is cancelled in early July as they might start cancelling flights in August.

There is one difference with other airlines, who offer 10% value on top. I am no lawyer but there may be a thing about consideration for both parties in entering a contract to get a voucher. I do not...

Was hoping for something cheaper with the virus but it was my first first so I thought it was worth trying it out - wouldn't pay that much next time though.

Consider looking at cheap flights in ET to AMS or LUX and use a POUG to get there. This is usally the best thing to do for day trips because BA has a special fare for day trips in Y during week-ends.
