Maybe not as bad as 'truly slothful', but it's a case of 'which argument is less painful'? I'm anticipating that my work will give me hassle because the BE booking did not follow all mandatory...

Thanks c-w-s. That was my initial claim - I said I wouldn't be seeking a refund, and instead was seeking effectively an endorsement of my ticket over to BE. To be honest, I'd be happy with 2 nights...

I've been rejected at T5 conformance because I "was already airside" - IB had checked someone in with the same name as me, using my booking for one leg, stripping my BAEC number in the process.

That was my attempted meaning of "Amex (issued and branded)" - ie it doesn't apply to 'proper' Amex cards (Green / Gold / Plat) issued by Amex. I think it applies to both Amex cards issued by others...

A few corrections: the cap is 0.3% for credit cards; the cap doesn't apply to Amex (issued and branded) cards; the interchange fee cap is exactly that - the interchange fee. BA still have to pay...

For people who just accept the offer from the iPad on-board, BA save themselves some Avios and some CR time. Win win! (except for the customer, obviously)
