Earlier this week I wrote about BA giving a reduction of the tier points needed for those that are due for renewal in March, April and May. Reader Lindsay commented to say that unofficially, the 30% reductions appear to apply to all parts of the scheme that need TPs to qualify:
- Gold Entry/Renewal at 1050 Tier points
- Gold Upgrade Voucher for 2 at 1750
- Gold Guest List Renewal at 2100
- 2 x Gold Upgrade Voucher for 1 at 2450
- Concorde Card renewal/GGL entry at 3500
- Joker at 4200
- Joker or 2x GUF1 or 50k Avios at 4900
- Joker or 2x GUF1 or 50k Avios at 5600
- Joker or 2x GUF1 or 50k Avios at 6300

Virtual traveller’ s party – meet travellers around the world & fun quiz
Travel app, App in the Air, is inviting travellers across the globe to a virtual meetup to connect, reminisce, and play trivia on Tuesday, 31st March at 7pm GMT. Those feeling lost in isolation after weeks of quarantine can meet other grounded frequent fliers, all from the safety on their own homes. Typically, App in the Air hosts in-person meetups around the world from London to New York for their users, but this time they are bringing that connection to everyone virtually. The meetup is open to all travel and aviation lovers, featuring a lightening round of aviation trivia and a Q&A with App in the Air’s Founder & CEO Bayram Annakov.
Trivia winners may receive prizes, such as airline gift cards. App in the Air is also encouraging meetup attendees, and travelers everywhere, to donate to the COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund for WHO, which works to track and understand the spread of the virus and ensure patients and frontline workers receive the care they need. App in the Air is also spearheading a social media campaign inviting followers to build a fleet of paper planes, further connecting grounded travellers and keeping families entertained in isolation.
You can join the virtual travel meet up HERE.
Watch out for TLFL’s virtual reader party coming soon.
