The HfP chat thread – Wednesday 11th August

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.

    @Bill I managed to set-up my Netflix account using the gift card method, but I am not able to add a UK issued card for future payments. I have tried using both VPN and non-VPN ways. Is there a trick to add the credit card that I am missing?

      Is your account set as UK? Not sure if that’s something they’ve caught on to, Spotify-esque, at the time of card-adding. You can change region after the month is expired (ie after cancelling the subscription) by re-subscribing via a VPN and using existing card details (yes, one would need the card on account by this stage). An alternative is to try subscribing via another country/UK itself first when first adding the card. If all else fails, sign up as UK for one month, cancel, then resubscribe from Turkey with existing details.

      Of I recall correctly I think I did it using live chat

    We have a CE booking Edi-Lhr-Ath rtn this October. BA has cancelled our domestic legs and rebooked us on different flights. In the email to inform us we were asked to accept the changes in MMB. However when I go there it displays the cancelled and rebooked flights but doesn’t offer an option to ‘accept’, just options to rebook a different flight or cancel. Anyone else experienced this? IT/website glitch? Really want to try and sort it without having to phone BA.
