News in brief:

British Airways drops Calgary for the winter

If you had a Canadian ski holiday planned, you won’t be pleased to discover that British Airways is suspending its Calgary service for the Winter.

There will be no flights from 28th October 2018 to 30th March 2019.

BA is currently refusing to rebook passengers on other airlines but this may change.  At present, all that is being offered is free rebooking to any other BA destination in the US or Canada.  British Airways will not pay to get you to Calgary from wherever you end up.  Alternatively, you can request a refund.

New Charles Tyrwhitt / Avios offer

If you didn’t win a polo shirt in our recent competition, Avios partner Charles Tyrwhitt, the shirt and suit company, is giving away a free £30 one with every order of £50 or more.

It is a bit fiddly.  You need to spend £50 on other items and then add one of the following products to your basket: JEP0314NAV, JEP0017WHT, JEP0017BLK, JEP0297BER, JEP0017TRQ, JEP0187BSK.  (Put these codes to the search box on the site to bring up the shirts.)

You need to add promo code CTUKSE8 to your order.   The £29.99 price for the shirt will be taken off.

The offer ends 19th June and can also be claimed in stores.  You earn 4 Avios per £1 spent at Charles Tyrwhitt either online (add your number during the order process) or by giving it to the assistant at the till in one of their stores.

The home page is here.  Details of the Avios partnership are here.

    Is it normal for BA (or any airline for that matter), to only have 1 Involuntary Rebooking Interline Agreement in place after 12 days? I see that for the Calgary Suspension, BA have only added UA as an option, which feels as if such agreements are almost ‘grudged’?

    Surely AC should be jumping at the chance to secure as many of these booked passengers to Calgary as possible, to try and convert them to future AC customers?

      there must be a negotiation on amount to be paid behind this, BA wouldn’t be paying headline ticket prices – maybe other airlines won’t go as low as BA requires
