Thank you very much! I really appreciate your input.

I will complain to both Amex and BA. I think Amex should know that their customers are being targeted. I posted this yesterday on another part of HFP and someone said that BA did the same to them and managed to leave bad taste after a wonderful honeymoon/vacation. Shocking!

The Voucher is in my name, so I was thinking that the paid one it’s my husband’s and that’s why they always move me instead of him. Unfortunately, I have binned all the previous boarding passes.

The thing is that there are about 4/5 other seats that could’ve been allocated to this person. Puzzling!

MariaJ if the 241 voucher is in your name then your husband is the +1 seat BA could regard as the free one.

But you say you’re the one always getting bumped so that strengthens tbe odds to you being directly targeted as the female passenger, to be moved (thanks to ChrisC for the wording correction).

Unless, of courae, out of you and your husband, it’s always you in the nicer seat? 🙂 Say, the window seat? In which case we’re back to it just being the nicer seat held by a 241 that’s being taken away, even when it was paid for, rather than a similar nicer seat held by someone not on a 241
