Forums Frequent flyer programs British Airways Executive Club Cancelling or changing 241 inbound date

  • LD27 125 posts

    I’m sure the information I need is somewhere by I can’t find it. Can someone please advise on the following?

    Have flown outbound leg of 241.

    1) If cancel inbound flight do Avios and taxes get refunded or do you lose both?

    2) If there is Avios availability on a different date can you change date of inbound flight?

    Many thanks

    1 – no refunds of avios. Am less sure about the cash element though.

    2 – yes if there is availability on your nee dates. Plus payment of any changes in the fees and taxes and possibly the change fee as well.

    A question, slightly related to this.

    If you change your CW inbound and theres now only PE available and you pay change fee? Will you get difference in Avios back?

    Originally this was not possible IIRC because the caveat to 2. in @LD27 and @BA Flyer reply was that it had to be in the same zone and the same class because the amount of avios concerned had to remain the same. However, I’m not sure what the policy on this is now that RFS has gone global because this means that customers are increasingly booking different avios/cash combinations. It probably hasn’t changed but I think worth calling to ask. If you do, go through to tge option for changes to flights using a voucher so that you get one of the more experienced CSA.

    Thank you all for your comments. Read other thread too.

    We had just arrived in Indonesia. Having been away for most of last 2 years, with elderly parents, children and business interests, it was inevitable there might be a reason to return to UK speedily. Unable to get an Avios ticket and as 241 voucher in my name, OH bought a fairly cheap single ticket with MH and Ethiad from Jakarta and I will travel back on original ticket from Singapore. Sadly he didn’t like my suggestion of flying via CMB and AUH with Sri Lankan!
