    Anybody know what the check in times are for Heathrow T3 with British Airways? Are they open all day? Looking to do a T3 Lounge Hop next week & BA.com is not particularly clear!

    For Silver and above you can checkin any time on the day of departure from when checkin opens which I think is about 05:30.

    Thank you!

    There was a comment yesterday that the possibility of turning a 2-4-1 into a FTV for extending the expiry to Sept 2023 is now finished. Is anyone able to confirm this? Thanks

    Does anyone know if money transfer transactions such as on moneygram are charged a cash advance free or excluded from gaining points on the Virgin Atlantic credit card?

    Could someone provide a list of things to register before cancelling Amex Plat so to retain benefits for rest of the year? I am aware of Marriott & Hilton- is there a dedicated portal one uses or hotel program upgrade the membership once received your Amex Plat details? Anything else to register?

    The terms and conditions say they are treated as a cash advance.

    How Clydesdale’s IT actually deals with it may not reflect the T&Cs.

    BA apparently saying online that a voluntary cancellation no longer extends 241 vouchers to Sept 23…and they will expire on existing date

    Tbh I thought the cut off date was 31/12 for that method anyway. I thought I read it on here but maybe not.

    Rob, can you comment on this FTV detail?

    No, it’s news to me and I doubt accurate unless it is in the FTV Q&A.

    Thanks Andrew. I’ve been trying to phone them but can’t get through. It’s Heathrow’s own short term parking. But your experience is what worries me!

    You may be able to amend the booking online.

    “Merry Percymas” Percy Pigs reduced to 48p a bag, stacks of them in my local M&S

    Thankfully I bought a bag, it’ll take away the Filthy taste of the Melon Fruit Crisps (reduced to 17p a bag).

    Book on your BAPP to get x3 Avios and your Plat insurance is still valid.
