    When I try to enter, I put in my name and email, click “Continue”, then the next page says “Sorry you don’t appear to be logged in”, then it flicks back to this page. What’s going on?

  • Tilly says:

    I’ll have to enter when I’m back from France. Won’t let me enter from Nice.

  • barney says:

    OT: Am i eligible for compensation under EU regulation in the following scenario? My AB flight was cancelled less than 7days before departure. I booked rhthe flight through BA with avios.

    • the real harry1 says:

      yes – from AB – so you’ll get nothing, they’re going bump & you’re last in line

      BA owe you nothing in terms of compo but they should sort out your Avios & fees or re-route you

  • Rob says:

    Yes, but as AB is bust I doubt they are paying!

  • Olly Loosemore says:

    As always, wanted to say thank you for the input you put into things. Have been visiting my sister using RFS for the past two years, in Business Class on BA. Mean’s I can go and see her, and her three screaming children much more often. And in November, my first big Avios redemption, Colombia with Iberia in Premium Economy. So thank you for all the hints and tips, it really is appreciated! And you throw in a competition or two as well!

  • EOC says:

    Phoned rolling luggage about much cheaper deals else where- they price matched which was good..

  • Dave R says:

    Great competition. Thanks

    I need a new cabin case after BA managed to break mine putting/shoving it into at overhead locker.

  • Chris says:

    Hi Rob,

    Query for you unrelated to this post. I have spent around £13k on my free BA amex this year, the year ending in a few days. I could upgrade to the paid card and get my companion voucher, and then downgrade again but am not sure if it’s realistically worth the effort and checks on the credit score. I only have 10000 points at the minute and am not sure if i’ll be able to gather enough points within the next two years to make the companion voucher worthwhile. What is your opinion on it? How easy is the downgrade to the free card once you’ve upgraded?


    • Rob says:

      It seems a shame not to – you could, after all, pick up 44,000 Avios in under a year simply by churning an Amex Gold (get, trigger bonus, cancel, wait 6 months, repeat) – or 88,000 plus referral bonuses if you referred your partner too.

      What are you down? £15 per month for the BAPP card. Assume you downgraded again after 2 months, that is £30 spent. Even if you used your 2-4-1 on 2 economy tickets to Spain, you’re saving 15,000 Avios which is worth £150 or so.

      • Chris says:

        Point well made, I’ll get the upgrade done today. Do you know if the upgrade will appear as an additional application on the credit score? The adviser at AMEX said it wouldn’t but i’m dubious.

        • Chris says:

          Spoke to AMEX – my cut off date for this year is the 3rd so they’ve said that I wont get the new card before then so wont get the companion voucher 🙁
