Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

The HfP chat thread – Monday 27th September

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.

    Are all AA LHR flights still going from T5?

  • Sunny says:

    What is BA’s change policy for tickets booked with 241 vouchers, where the outbound has been flown? Am I still able to change my ticket without any penalty?

    Hilton Honors question: I have complementary HH Gold with the Amex platinum business card. I am thinking if cancelling the card so I presume I would loose the status at the end of the year. If I make a reservation now, for next year, paying in advance, does the Hilton hotel give me HH gold benefits in accordance with my status at the time of the booking or the time of the stay?

    • Harry T says:

      Time of stay. Your status may well have been extended recently though.

    • Ukgeorge says:

      Thanks. I just read an article claiming all HH statuses have been extended to March 31 2023 so I should be fine anyhow.

    How long do Airtime transactions take to show in the app? Recently downloaded and linked my card but not a single transaction is showing. Thanks

  • Mart says:

    Any recommendations for all inclusive in Ibiza? Looking at a week next May. Thanks

    Question. Can more than one FTV be cashed in on one return flight for the two people mentioned on it (FTV includes a BAPP 241) I have a 241 expiring in January and wondering whether it’s worth booking to fly to Manchester and changing my mind.
