No, you can’t! What ‘showing’ the card actually means is that BA will swipe the card. As ever, it’s the cover up that gets people into more problems than the initial attempt to fiddle the system. Of course the cardholder has also contracted to destroy the card on cancellation.

Why would they swipe it? What would that achieve? Have you seen it done, @JDB?
