    This morning the security barriers in the first wing were playing up and I noticed a guy with a black mobile boarding pass go though. I’ve seen white, blue, bronze, silver and gold boarding passes but never a black one. What exec club level do you need to be to get a black boarding pass ?

    Are you in a position to send a minimum £1m+ corporate account BAs way AND then get past BA board scrutiny of why you should be made prem?

    Or perhaps an international celebrity of some sort who has driven a lot of business from your fans towards BA?

    If not then just look on in awe at the 300 or so Prems.

    Yes I’m guessing Corporate Travel Manager. A bit like with Jewellers that have no price tags in the window: “If you need to ask the price, you probably can’t afford it”. And all I want is a Black Nando’s card 😁

    Well, I could print a black and white one, that’s about the limit of my technical expertise 😂

    I had a black American Airlines boarding pass recently. I remember thinking it looked pretty cool, but I presume black’s the standard AA colour for OneWorld Sapphire? I never fly AA and only did because BA had to rebook me when my flight was cancelled, so what do I know. Regardless, a more attainable way of acquiring a black boarding pass maybe?
