BA Sale

AerClub Avios from United Airlines finally posting!

Last week I wrote an article on how you can earn Avios when flying with United Airlines, even though United is a member of Star Alliance.

This is because United has a partnership with Aer Lingus which pre-dates the purchase of Aer Lingus by BA’s owner IAG.  You can fly with United, credit the Avios to an Aer Lingus AerClub account, and move them to British Airways Executive Club via ‘Combine My Avios’.

Earn Avios with United Airlines

Nice plan.  The teeny tiny snag was that, in the 18 months since AerClub launched, it had never managed to solve the IT problem of getting United Airlines to post.

Now they have.  If you have ever credited a United flight to AerClub, check your Aer Lingus account.  You will hopefully have a surprise package of Avios waiting for you.

Whether Avios will now credit on a timely basis for future United flights remains to be seen ….
