Next redemption sale?

I seem to recall that BA usually has had a redemption sale around this time of year for the past few years. Is there any reason to believe this may not continue this year?

I'm pretty happy that AC is thoughtful enough to give you replacement ear buds. AA just collects them.

I hope BA doesn't repeat the disastrous changes CX implemented last year which led to an exodus of members. Literally the definition of customer disloyalty.

Let's suppose CX suffers HK$50 leakage per flight. At 6000 flights per month, that's HK$3.6M lost per year. Under CX's current operating environment, where they're not swimming in consistent profits,...

Received the elusive double upgrade from WT to CW on my flight last week LGW-JFK. Very happy, as I haven't had an Op-Up on BA for about 3 years now. WT+ went out completely full.

Makes me wonder...

I was really hoping for a repeat of last year's spring holidays relaxation of rules for Golds. I'm travelling with two companions next month, and am not sure who to leave outside!

Surely at 9000TP's per year, achieving LTG would be a more immediate priority?

I know there's limited information and reviews at the moment, but is the general consensus that none of the new TK lounges will be as "spectacular" as the current one?

I never noticed the flies hanging out around the desserts until the last change of operator. Even if it might be concept-caused, this wasn't an issue in the past.
And also, if really nothing can be...

Great on BA to be delighting these passengers, and I feel 100 upgrades is the perfect number. 25 upgrades per day for 4 days can easily be absorbed without the regulars feeling their loyalty devalued.

I do think this is progress, but I think requesting miles is a bit over the top. I wished CX put a note in your file to ensure that the next flight you're on, you get a guaranteed first choice of...

I disagree that lifetime status carries that risk. If you get SfL or GfL and you don't continue to fly BA, then you also don't benefit from lifetime status. why get SfL if you don't intend to use it?

I wonder if CX could still claim it was a mistake? I'm not entirely sure that you would prevail with DOT.

Don't take this the wrong way, but to be honest, if you took it to DOT, CX could still win. CX has said they would honour the fare, but at no point did it say it wasn't a mistake.
