The HfP chat thread – Tuesday 24th November

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’ve held an Amex that settled in the middle of Nov 2018 on my Credit Report, so I need to wait until December or January to reapply and it count as over 24 months for the bonus?

    • BuildTheWall says:

      Call Amex to confirm the date of cancellation. Credit report may be updated with a lag and might not be accurate.

      • Peter K says:

        Agreed. Ring Amex to get exact date. 24 months+1 day should be okay, but I’d give it 24 months + 5 days to be safe.

  • James says:

    Should be a simple question, but can’t figure this out!
    If I book a BA return to Europe now, say LHR-MAD-LHR, then want to alter just the return flight (date change or cancel) under the ‘Book with confidence’ policy, what happens?
    Do I have to reprice the whole flight for a change? Or to cancel, is there any way to just drop the return?
