    I have an Iberia account which was opened in 2015 . Had dribbles of avios in it over the years but never anything more than 200 or zero!
    I suddenly find that ( silly me) I have 3000 avios in it from an Accor transfer of points.
    Trying to get them over to my BA account is proving impossible. First my name didn’t match and passport details had to be sent to get it sorted( they had my middle name as surname).
    Now, the BA site states I’m ineligible to transfer and I don’t know why. The Iberia site wants my PIN and it’s not recognising it and nowhere to find out. Iberia are not understanding and keep sending me emails on changing my password!
    I’m thinking it’s bye bye to my avios! Any ideas?

    Can you transfer from Iberia to Aer Lingus avios.com account? Might be a work around? Then from Aer Lingus to BA?

    Thanks. Managed to get it to work . I had been trying that and kept getting error for the PIN. What Iberia actually mean is password!!!! Which I tried on the off chance and Hey presto . Am I the only one who didn’t figure that out?
    Thanks again

    Why they can’t just use the word password instead of pin everywhere is weird but glad you sorted it.

    I imagine it harks back to when the password for Iberia had to be a 6 digit pin and they haven’t invested in changing the wording on the website 🙄

    I had a password AND a 6 digit pin. Hence all the faffing about and cursing !
