Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

The HfP chat thread – Tuesday 23rd March

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

We are running 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.

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.

    So The real Harry, Squills, Shoestring, what name are you under now? And I don’t expect you to reveal yourself but it’s good to hear that you’re still around. Low profile is always good at times.

    • Bazza says:

      I thought he got #cancelled?

      He was always the best for clever stuff – no just your basic churning

    • Crafty says:

      Is he Chris Heyes?

    • Rhys says:

      He’s more than welcome to contribute if he has something decent to say. The reason we removed him was because he was trolling and posting extremely inappropriate stuff. It got out of hand during the first lockdown and we had to ban him.

  • BrotherBear says:

    Sure this has been asked numerous times so apologies in advance.

    Had some RFS flights cancelled (think they moved us onto different BA flights to same destination – time/day/airport changes).

    These flights are April/May so we won’t be able to go.

    What are our options? Are we able to get the flights moves to any date in the future? Does there need to be avios availability? Is it better to just get a refund?

    Thanks in advance.

  • Cookies says:

    Are there referral points to refer from green amex to platinum business?

    TGLoyalty – you are right about the opening of the W in the earlier comments. I’ve no idea where my head was at when I bashed that out. I think maybe mixing it up with the old W in Al Habtoor City where I had stayed several years ago before moving here.

      The V 🙂

      Those 3 properties actually look interesting (for hotels next to a 8 lane motorway lol)
