Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

The HfP chat thread – Sunday 30th August

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

We have decided to run this daily chat thread on Head for Points during the coronavirus outbreak.

Historically, the daily ‘Bits’ articles were the de facto repository for random comments and questions.  With the news flow being lighter, we are running fewer ‘Bits’ articles.

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 at home, 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 it 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.

Old chat threads are hidden from the HfP home page.  If you want to look for something in an old thread, click here.  This brings up all the articles in our ‘General’ category which includes the chat threads.

    I am 25 tier points short of my next level BA status and I have till 8th September. I was due to fly but the flights got cancelled. Has anyone had any success with BA giving the status if flights got cancelled. There is no way I can fly before 8th September.

    Can I fly The outbound journey on the actual expiry date of the BA 2-4-1 voucher? Or does it have to be at least the day before? Thanks so much.

      I would guess that if it takes off on the final day then you’re fine.
