Experience with complaint cases?

    Wondering what in your experience the typical time is to wait for a reply after opening a complaint with BA. Over two months ago (wait, make that three by now), I went on a BA Holidays trip. Still haven’t gotten the double tier points. Tried calling, emails, etc. Eventually gave up and used the complaints form.

    I so far got one mail that my case has been logged. That alone took two days. In classic BA fashion, there’s of course no way to track your issue ticket online or in any other way. You just have to wait.

    Think I’ll get a reply before my membership year ends… in November?

    Same here. Tried all the email addresses inc duty office, made a formal complaint, all ignored. Nearly 3 months now since I got home from that trip.

    I put in a complaint in early January about an onboard issue.
    10k avios received after about 4 weeks max.

    I literally don’t know anyone who did a BAH booking and got the double TPs without chasing. If you can get an agent from the chat, they’ll be able to help. Alternatively, email [email protected] with a small note that you didn’t get your TPs. Include booking ref, BA membership number, date of birth, email address and postcode for each passenger in the reservation.

    They’ll turn it around.

    Datapoint – reply from [email protected] after 6 days crediting the tier points after emailing all other addressed inc a formal complaint over 2 months brought no reply.

    It’s almost exactly 4 months since I returned from the trip. So basically i’ve lost a quarter of the silver status year due to BA’s incompetant running of the promotion.

    Adding…. they’ve made a balls up and added the TP as of today and not 2nd Dec when I took the flight, so the extra Avios I would have earned from the back credit on the real date are missing.

    I complained about a January 2022 double tier point holiday that at the time was 30 days I chased and waited 56 in the end however I had another holiday in the mean time and that was also credited within 15 days. I am currently on my next holiday that will qualify for double, I see how long that takes to process. If I honest I would have thought BA would have sorted this out by now it’s been nearly 6 months of complaints regarding this subject.

    Was caught up in the IT melt down. £700 out of pocket and beyond the confirmation of receipt nothing since. There needs to be a requirement to settle such issues within 14 days, built into complaint handling and U.K. 261 legislation.

    I am 5 weeks in to a complaint, submitted by “Resolver” website. It is for re-routing for a cancelled avios flight that they only want to refund. It received a acknowledgement and complaint reference number, but never heard anything more.
    I will simply book said replacement flight, and take to CEDR for the £££ amount if they don’t respond by 8 weeks.

    I spoke to BA today as I had similar issue and raised the complaint 8 days ago and they told me today that currently it’s taking them 22 days to look at them.

    I wish…I am currently on day 28. after the IT meltdown of Feb 25th.

    22 days my ***. Had no reply at all to mine logged via the online form on 13th Feb. So what’s that, 45 days now.

    BA today settled (or agreed to settle) my £1620 claim for two tickets (and taxi) I had to buy to get home from Austria at end of Feb. Story in another thread here. Ended up emailing some guy [email protected]. Settled quite quickly overall but you have to push it.

    Same here. Day 28 and nothing apart from my weekly automated “we haven’t forgotten about your case” email. YouFirst and Twitter team unable to provide any rough timescale.

    Well done. If you haven’t could you post the outcome there too,please? Always excellent when posters let us know of their successes as it helps protect against the odd Dementor or two.
