BA starts issuing electronic vouchers finally and you can use them for other people!
I can now confirm that British Airways have started turning the previous voucher refunds into electronic vouchers that can be used online. They are now working their way through all customers who took a voucher on a simple single person flight booking which did not have any paid ancillary items such as hotels, upgrades, paid seating or extra luggage and were not disrupted. So far BA have converted over 20,000 vouchers into e-vouchers and are converting them at over 10,000 a day. So if you meet the criteria you should not have long to wait.
The good news is that unlike the non-electronic vouchers, you CAN use them for other people not on the original booking. You can redeem these e-vouchers online by entering the voucher code at checkout. The only issue with them is that you can only use one per booking electronically. You can use more than one voucher per booking by phone still.
You should get an email with the e-voucher details once it has been converted. New vouchers that fit the criteria should also come as an e-voucher.
Note: If your new journey starts in certain countries you will still need to call to use the voucher:
Libyan Arab Jamahiriya
Republic of Korea
Get your TLFL face masks
There is not a lot of choices if you want a fun face mask related to flying or frequent travel, so I decided to produce a few of my own. I will be integrating my Etsy shop into this site shortly, but in the meantime, if you are interested in buying one, they are available from my Etsy shop:
These fun travel-themed masks are extremely comfortable, soft padded, with a 4-way stretch. They are made from breathable, comfortable scuba twin-layer stitch neoprene material with no need for an extra filter. The masks are reusable and washable in 30 – 40 degree wash, do not tumble dry or bleach.
We will be doing a giveaway in early August where you can win one of these masks along with plenty of other aviation goodies!
