Over on Reddit, a user who claims to be a British Airways employee has posted pictures of new British Airways Executive Club membership cards. See below, and click to enlarge.
I have cropped the image but it looks as if it was taken from an internal BA system. The original page doesn’t describe the cards as new – it is just part of a general descriptive article on BAEC. This makes me think that the web designer used the image from a library without realising it wasn’t meant to be released.
They look oddly Middle Eastern / Moorish in design – if Emirates had released this as a design I wouldn’t have been surprised. Let’s see if these are actually released to members.
