With absolutely zero fanfare – in fact, with no notification of any sort – all British Airways American Express 2-4-1 companion vouchers have been extended by six months.
Here is a screenshot from my account to prove it:
Note that my vouchers were issued in October / November 2019 and so should have expired in October / November 2021. (This is off a British Airways Premium Plus American Express so the voucher has a 2-year validity.)
Instead, they now expire in April / May 2022.
For clarity, neither of these vouchers has ever been used to book a flight. They are not vouchers which have been returned to my account following an enforced flight cancellation.
Looking at reader feedback, it seems that all vouchers have been extended. Even ones which only triggered in the last 48 hours are showing a 30-month validity on Premium Plus cards. What we won’t know for a few days is whether vouchers triggered AFTER today come through with 24 months or 30 months.
Hopefully you will see the same when you go into your British Airways Executive Club account.
