Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

‘My Flightpath’ – a cool new tool on ba.com

Links on Head for Points may pay us an affiliate commission. A list of partners is here.

British Airways launched a new tool on ba.com yesterday – ‘My Flightpath’.

You can access it here (log-in required).

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:

My Flightpath Dashboard 2

Your cities and countries – a map of where you have been:

My Flightpath Map 2

and finally

Your badges – try to collect a few badges (no prizes!) for ticking off some arbitrary targets:

My FLightpath Badges 2

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 ….

    Thanks for pointing this out Raffles. It’s a neat tool that reminds me of where I have flown and brings back some good memories. Well done BA!

  • mike sanders says:

    You were right Rob I couldn’t resist it but have to take issue with the data, it does not include any redemption flights but most of all it does not seem to include the old Exec Club from the 70’s for which I still have my card a very substantial piece of plastic.
    Fun anyway.
    Thanks

  • Alan says:

    I like it! Shame it doesn’t show partner accrual too. I’ve also got some big gaps from my bmi days, but understandable them not being there. Quite fun looking back at old flights!

  • Johnny5a says:

    some missing info – only shows flights when he has sat in a seat, doesn’t show any of his flights when he was an infant.

    when I logged into my son’s BAEC, it has only shown BA flights from Nov 2013.

    • Johnny5a says:

      I’ve just found this strange flight – in my list

      Date 25/02/2009
      myrtle beach to dit
      Flight number BA0001

  • Kathy H says:

    Had to have a look but loads of gaps when travelling on a BA flight number but codeshare with QF including my first trip on A380 in First 🙁

    I prefer http://www.ba97.com as it gives much more flexibility but perhaps not as pretty 🙂

  • Aeronaut says:

    For some frequent flyers, I’m not entirely sure that “Minutes in the air” is a statistic which will be particularly relished…

    • trickster says:

      It would appear to change the units of measurement each time you revisit. Mine now says minutes in the air and times round the globe; now it says days in the air and times round Mars!

  • trickster says:

    Love it! wouldn’t it be good (for some geeks) if it could tell you some more info such as the plane type/reg you flew on!

    PS: most of my flights are redemption flights, and they are all on there.

    • oyster says:

      If you’re as geeky as I am then you’d have a spreadsheet already! And a spreadsheet for my 11 month old!

    • Czechoslovakia says:

      Trying not to be a geek, but the LH equivalent does show aircraft types, airlines as well as puts your place in the FF “pyramid” and compares your time in the air with an average crew member. No badges though 🙁

  • Hingeless says:

    Point (s) less 🙂
