The new HFP chat thread – Sunday 28th June

Links on Head for Points may pay us an affiliate commission. A list of partners is here.

We have decided to run this new daily chat thread on Head for Points.

Historically, the daily ‘Bits’ articles were the defacto repository for random comments and questions.  It is unlikely that the news flow will be so big over the next few weeks that we will need many ‘Bits’ articles, however.

The comments under this article are where you should post questions about travel and, indeed, anything else on your mind.  At this tricky time, and given that many of you are stuck at home self-isolating, we want the HFP community to have a place to chat.

Please only comment under the main articles on the site if your comment is directly related to the topic of the article.  This has long-term benefits as its keeps the commentary relevant for people who read those articles in the future.

By default, HFP shows the last page of comments under the article.  If you want to see the first page of comments and read them all from beginning to end in order, click here:  The page will refresh with this article but the comments will now show the first page and not the last page.

We will continue to monitor how this is working.  Let’s see how it goes.  Take care!

    Has anything been said regarding what BA are doing with Gatwick routes yet? A while ago they were supposedly ditching LGW but as far as I know no flights have been moved from LGW to LHR. Interested as booked onto LGW -> DLM late August. A move to LHR would be good for us!

    • Rumours on FT say BA’s LGW short haul base may not re-open for the foreseeable future…

      • Gareth says:

        We’ve got BA reward seats to Paphos from Gatwick on 18th July, still supposedly running. Surely they need to make a decision soon?!!

    • LGW to ALC has moved to LHR for July. Tirana has also moved.

    My Amex referral points came through for a recent referral to my wife. Hopefully others now got theirs

    • Secret Squirrel says:

      BA First 787-10 delivered to LHR today, looking forward to seeing pics and vids.

  3. Christopher says:

    Are Amex platinum still bunging a few thousand MR points to those threatening to cancel?

    • Secret Squirrel says:

      Not heard any reports recently, give em a call & report back!

    • Polly says:

      Yes, l got offered them again this week….but am planning to cancel sadly..

  4. Curve back online tomorrow 👍

    • A fair bit of (IMO) negativity on here towards them, but good effort on their part if that rings true!

      • Polly says:

        Yes, agree, that was some rescue council tax and other bills to pay by July so was watching the clock…

    • the_real_a says:

      I swear this must go down as the luckiest bit of misfortune i have even seen in corporate history… I wont be using my card next week though, having experienced for myself the “hangover” effect of developers pulling all nighters and releasing vomit code.

    Thanks, Anna, Sundar and Craig (re my mis-qualification for IHG credit card free night yesterday).

    Looks like I’m stuffed!
