Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

The HfP chat thread – Thursday 28th October

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.

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.

    Anyone else had this amazing error message on the BA website? Just a blank screen with a message saying they are improving the Exec Club and everything should be back up and running for 17 Nov. I guess there is some downtime coming up but the message was triggered early by website issues this evening.

      What were you trying to do?

      Anything HHA admin related is verboten until 17th November for example.

    I think that would be a better header for my last post rather than flagging it as off topic
