Forums Frequent flyer programs British Airways Executive Club BA in J – last minute change in plane

  • chrishond 43 posts

    I flew BA in J. Was supposed to be in the new club suite from LHR.

    Was a last minute change to a very old aircraft in the old yin Yang set up (apparently normally used at LGW)

    Can I put in a complaint for some avios?

    No, you got a business class seat

    No. You still got a business class seat. You are not guaranteed club suite versus old club world. Planes get changed for all sorts of reasons and that is not a valid compensation claim.

    If you didn’t pay a cheap fare, complain and let us know how you get on.

    What has the fare got to do with this?

    Even the main picture shows CW, not CS.

    @Yonasl
    – spot on, although BA’s “please check at the time of booking” statement is somewhat unhelpful, seeing as it is what happens at the time of flying that counts 🙂
