Apologies, I still had BA's ridiculous codeshare pricing on these flights in my mind, which is around 1300 EUR... having checked my records, I managed to eke these tickets out for around 805 EUR...

Refund doesn't seem to be a good option, since my ticket rules only allow for 50% refund normally. I guess the equipment change wouldn't garner much sympathy from CS? Nothing about my trip...

Equipment change

Booked LHR-HEL-LHR for 17MAY to 23MAY in Business Class, and back when I did so, the flights were meant to be flown with the A350. However, since then, the equipment has quietly changed to A319 on...

So I've got a LHR-HND on April 2 and return on Apr 11. This was originally an LHR-NRT-LHR on May 17-25, 2020, first rebooked when BA changed from NRT to HND, and then rebooked again for the new dates...

I thought the entire reason why LCCs are profitable in the first place is because they concentrate on routes that full service airlines have found to not be worth it?

Personally though, I'd first...

TRN-LGW in early February. Had to postpone the return flight by two days due to Storm Ciara, and missed the missus' birthday in the process.

It got cancelled the other day, and a full refund of the balance paid was automatically processed as it was a BA Holiday.

However, it came to me that earlier in the year I had called in to upgrade...

This one hurts the most, as it's a common route for me, and an easy 160 TP; but especially since economy on AY typically costs more than CE on BA on this route. Asked BA about it, and they were quite...

I gave it a whirl too, at least I'll eat well for the next four meals if nothing else. Though by the time I got there, the price had ballooned up to a full 3.00. :rolleyes:

I'm sure such "errors" happen all the time, and they're counting on the xx% of people who will never challenge it.

MMB does give me the option to change dates, but currently only up to mid-June. So to rebook on the same dates mid-August next year, I'd have to wait until around September, right? Would the options...

I don't know if this is enough to sway me to keep my card. The free 100 in groceries I buy anyway is nice (though very late), but in no way makes up for the 575 annual fee. There's also the double...
