Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

Forums Frequent flyer programs British Airways Executive Club Anyone received TP/Avios yet on a Cathay P Class Business ticket?

    As this previous HfP article and comment thread is closed, a quick query in the forum (mods please feel free to move if there is a more appropriate location)

    If you look at the BA website and look to see what level of avios you earn, is does indeed show 125% avios for Business (JCDIP).

    If you follow the link to see what TP you earn, entering your BAEX status (in my case Golf) along with it being a Cathay flight (LHR to HKG), it only lists JCDI under Business for Avios or TP.

    So this is either one part of the BA system not catching up (TP calculator) or we still need to avoid this ticket class – anyone any recent experience of getting TP/Avios when applying their BAEC details to a P class Cathay ticket?

    I have screen grabs but dont have the necessary accounts to link the URL – but easy to see for yourselves if you go to both:

    Yes, my LHR-HKG in P class from last Friday posted today correctly.

    There is also a thread on Flyertalk confirming it since the change last year. The calculator is just not up to date, which is not that unusual.
