Hilton Honors has an interesting auction package up for grabs to see the Spice Girls at Wembley on 14th June.  Interestingly, it has been sitting on the site for a couple of weeks now with only three bids, and is currently at 84,000 points.

This is what you get:

Two tickets to the Spice Girls concert at Wembley Stadium on June 14, 2019

3-course dining experience at Association Restaurant at Hilton London Wembley on June 14, 2019

Pre-concert drinks in Sky Bar 9

Two night stay at Hilton London Wembley from June 13-15, 2019, including daily breakfast

Given the concert sold out in minutes, this is a pretty valuable package.  You can bid or find out more here.  The auction closes on 1st April.

  1. OT: How long are Virgin FC to Hikton transfers taking these days?

  2. OT: Revolut Just got the card and will be travelling in Malaysia next month. Since RM is not one of the currencies they support what are the fx charges if we use it in Malaysia?

    • Genghis says:

      It just means that you cannot hold a MYR balance. You’ll hold a balance in GBP which then gets translated at interbank rate during the week (UK time) and interbank + 1% at weekends (so maybe use another card).

  3. Apologies if this has already been mentioned but yesterday the subject was raised concerning emails purporting to be from Hilton Honors offering Diamond Status to people like myself who already have it. I have received confirmation from Hilton it is not a glitch, nor is it from them.

  4. O/T – US Plat Amex have a scheme entitled “By Invite Only” – is this accessible to UK Amex Plat card holders?

  5. MoJack says:

    OT; Advice pls,
    Whats the best thing to do with <500 points left in an amex account…?

  6. OT – Completed the outbound leg of a flight to FLL from LHR with a connection in ATL. The transit time between flights was only 64 minutes so was always going to be touch and go if we cleared immigration in time for the connection – landing time 8:25pm / connecting flight 9.29pm. “Surprisingly” we missed the connecting flights due to the lack of staff at immigration – the flight did arrive on time.

    We we’re able to board the next flight but there was no 1st class seats available so had to take comfort+ or wait until the following day. Could I claim compensation for the downgrade? The flight was booked as a cash ticket last year but times altered on a number of occasions which meant the transfer time was very short compared to the original booking.

    • Genghis says:

      Isn’t there precedent from an Emirates case last year about EC261 being payable on connecting flights that originate from the EU?

      • Not sure. We did make the next flight at 11.45pm so in theory delayed 2 hours 15 minutes but downgraded to comfort +.

      • Yes. If you arrive 3+ hours late because your incoming flight was under 3 hours late but you missed your connection, compo is due.

        • Jonathan says:

          My understanding is if you voluntarily downgrade to get an earlier flight then no downgrade compensation. The fact you were 2hrs 15mins late also removes delay compensation as well unfortunately. If you had waited for First availability then would have been entitled to delay payment.

        • Shoestring says:

          I think Jonathan is right – it was your call to take the downgrade, therefore it was voluntary. Your best bet might be asking customer services for some Avios points.

          Delay does not appear to be long enough to claim compo on that score – but you omit the arrival time of plane #2 (doors open) which is the important datum (not your 11.45 take off).

  7. OT – BAPP – is there a bigger sign up than 25K (26K with referral)??

    Sure there has been 35K when they do offers

    • Genghis says:

      IIRC there was a 30k sign up last year but you had to apply via a certain link (i.e. referrals not possible).

    • Platinum sign up is 35k MR points if referred.

  8. Michael says:

    If you have a virgin and card you could try that.


    As a BAEC silver status holder is the extra check-in baggage allowance permitted when flying on an Iberia plane booked using IB Avios via in what Iberia call Blue Class ?

    Is Blue Class like the BA HBO fare (although does include 1 check-in bag !!) in that extra baggage allowance from status is not allowed ?


  10. Taylor says:

    OT: What is the better lounge at Birmingham for a week day flight No1 or Aspire? And is there a way to reserve Aspire in the same way as No1 for £5 using priority pass?

    • Shoestring says:

      on point 2, I’d like to be proven wrong, but – answer: no, not for £5. I think you can reserve a place by buying entry, ie £40 at times, but you can’t reserve entry on PP @£5 same as No1

    • I am Birmingham-based and much prefer No1 over Aspire in terms of surroundings and quality of food/drink. The ability to reserve for £5 is also a bonus and includes access to fast track security which has always been well worth it for us. Next time we have a day flight I’m tempted to try the new No1 Clubrooms – can be reserved for £15 on PP I believe.

  11. Qwerty Bertie says:

    Does showing a platinum card typically gain entry to lounges, if the PP card has been left behind?

    • Genghis says:

      If you swipe it and charge £40 to it, of course. There is a PP app.

    • No. However Plat has direct deals with Plaza Premium and Delta – flash your card there and you’ll get in.

    • TGLoyalty says:

      sign in to the PP App and you can add a virtual card to your wallet

      • Qwerty Bertie says:

        Thanks. It’s a shame they can’t just add a little logo to the amex card, the way HSBC has with Lounge Key. I was hoping a flash would work so that I could purposely not carry the PP card.

        I can’t use most apps as I have a Windows phone. I’ll have a look, but I expect it’ll be the same old story with PP…
