But you won’t be departing the UK so you’ll be fine.

The rule is only one flight departing the UK to stop people doing multiple in and outs to boost the TPs

On that analysis, if you travel on a domestic flight, where are you departing? The terms do not refer to leaving the country. Some support may come from the fact that entirely domestic BAH are allowed which involve two domestic departures, but where there’s a web of return domestic flights ahead of an international one, it’s certainly not within the obvious intention or spirit of the rules and that may matter more than normal since there’s no realistic mechanism for enforcing the letter of the rules or having any potential ambiguity determined in your favour. It’s a bit like HMRC and artificial or contrived transactions.

It might well all be fine and slip through the net but if there is any manual intervention because the points don’t post correctly, or the pax seeks ORC or 261 compensation etc. the TP may not stick.
