    Hi, if I book flights via Amex Travel Platinum, can I pay with any Amex card, such as BAPP?

    Well with hotels, the amex travel page forces you to pay with platinum to get platinum benefits (FHR).
    Airline portal will be similar – you select which card you are using for the service. Does it matter for flights though? I didn’t think there were any ‘platinum’ benefits for flights, so why not just use BAPP if wanting to charge to BAPP?

    Also – you can find out for yourself by going through to the last page of the checkout!

    Amex Travel will know if you call them to ask.

    Thanks. Itinerary cannot be booked online, as mixed classes. Call Centre was a long hold, so was hoping somebody knew.

    Again – Amex Travel agency is not a “platinum” thing, you can use it with your BAPP. Is there any ‘platinum’ benefit you were hoping to get on amex travel flights that I am unaware of?
