Just noting that after another follow-up, BA has credited the points for my AUH-LHR on Etihad. The highlight was a (template) email from BAEC chiding me that if I input my BAEC number into the...

Out of curiosity, probably for CWS, is anyone hearing about original routing credit for flights on non-BA partners? For example, I'm likely to end up on Etihad but would like my tier points if at all...

It's not a certainty that NO flights will operate, but I'd plan that it won't. A dummy booking on BA.com or ITA makes it look like PRG-LHR is cancelled, so I'd get on the phone to AA and see if you...
