In what is clearly a co-ordinated plan by British Airways, they announced massive changes to British Airways Executive Club just minutes after I boarded an eight hour flight 🙂
They forgot, though, that just because BA does not have wi-fi it does not mean that no airlines have wi-fi. One up to Etihad.
I will do a full analysis of the changes for tomorrow. My wife is away on business so a very late night will not lead to any marital disharmony.
In the short term, ie today, FORGET ABOUT THEM.
Because BA has released tens of thousands of Club World and World Traveller seats overnight, you have NEVER had a better chance of getting the redemption you want.
Fuss about the BAEC changes tomorrow. Today, dust off that Amex 2-4-1 voucher and get something booked.
