BA has been having a tough week with delays, baggage piling up, and staff shortages. So it’s great to be able to report three pieces of good news.
Any tiered Executive Club Members with a Tier Point collection end date between 1 April – 30 June 2022 will receive another year of their current status.
It means that no British Airways Executive Club Member renewing during this period, including Bronze, Silver and Gold card holders will lose their Tier status, regardless of how many Tier Points they have earned.
25% tier point reduction
Another 25% threshold reduction in Tier Status has been applied for Members with a Tier Point collection end date until December 2022. This means that you only need to earn 25% of the usual tier points to retain or achieve status so it could be a good time to make the next tier level.
This will now make the thresholds:
|Tier||Normal threshold||Adjusted threshold (75%)|
|Bronze||300 or 25 eligible flights||225 or 18 eligible flights|
|Silver||600 or 50 eligible flights||450 or 37 eligible flights|
|Gold Guest List||5,000 to qualify||3,000 to renew||3,750 to qualify||2,250 to renew|
|Concorde Room Card||n/a||n/a|
Double tier points on British Airways Holidays extended
Members are also being given more opportunities to earn double Tier points with British Airways Holidays. Announced today, BA is extending its current offer, meaning that those booking a holiday package (flights + hotel and/or car) of five nights or more can earn double Tier Points when travelling before 31 October 2022 (formerly 31 March 2022). There is no-minimum spend and the offer applies to existing bookings and solo travellers.
There are a few things to note in the terms and conditions. It can take up to 60 days to credit the double tier points but in reality, many people are not receiving them at all and having to chase them. The offer is only for bookings originating in the UK and the hotel or car element of the booking must be booked for the duration of the trip.
There were several decent BA Holiday deals in the current sale, you can find the promotion page here.
