Forums Frequent flyer programs British Airways Executive Club Cancelling avios booking for free workaround

  • sm 183 posts

    Good morning. Recently booked two lots of 2-4-1 BA reward flight to US for summer 2023 but wish to cancel. On manage my booking it is allowing me to change the date of flight free of charge.

    If I change the date of the flights so the journey finishes by 30th September 2022 it is then possible to get a full refund by applying for an FTV on BA.COM? I am aware they are not issuing vouchers for avios bookings but refunding in full.
    Is this a workaround that could potentially work?
    Thank you so much for your thoughts.

    The short answer is no.

    The longer answer involves the fact you apparently booked after 7th June when BWC for new bookings ended.

    The only way to get a free refund would be if any of the flights get cancelled or there is a schedule change of more than (I think) 2 hours but it could be 4
