British Airways launched a new tool on ba.com yesterday – ‘My Flightpath’.
When BA launched Lifetime Tier Points last year, they were forced into assembling lots of data on your British Airways trip history. Someone clearly thought that it was a shame to see this data go to waste!
So, log in via the link above and this is what you will now see. The data here is for my 2 year old. In reality he has done more than this but we didn’t bother getting him a BAEC number until he took his first revenue flight!
Your dashboard – a quick summary of where you have flown on BA and partners:
Your cities and countries – a map of where you have been:
Your badges – try to collect a few badges (no prizes!) for ticking off some arbitrary targets:
It doesn’t have any great purpose (except, looking at the Flyertalk discussion on this, to convince a lot of people that BA must have calculated their lifetime tier points wrongly!), but I bet you end up sneaking a look ….
How to earn Avios from UK credit cards (February 2023)
As a reminder, there are various ways of earning Avios points from UK credit cards. Many cards also have generous sign-up bonuses!
In February 2022, Barclaycard launched two exciting new Barclaycard Avios Mastercard cards with a bonus of up to 25,000 Avios. You can apply here.
You qualify for the bonus on these cards even if you have a British Airways American Express card:
There are two official British Airways American Express cards with attractive sign-up bonuses:
SPECIAL OFFER: Until 21st February 2023, the sign-up bonus on the British Airways Premium Plus American Express card is increased to 35,000 Avios from 25,000 Avios. You can apply here.
You can also get generous sign-up bonuses by applying for American Express cards which earn Membership Rewards points.
Run your own business?
We recommend Capital On Tap for limited companies. You earn 1 Avios per £1 which is impressive for a Visa card, along with a sign-up bonus worth 10,500 Avios.
You should also consider the British Airways Accelerating Business credit card. This is open to sole traders as well as limited companies and has a 30,000 Avios sign-up bonus.
There are also generous bonuses on the two American Express Business cards, with the points converting at 1:1 into Avios. These cards are open to sole traders as well as limited companies.
