    Hi I have just completed 4 flights with Qatar that got me 560 points which I thought was enough for silver status but my account says I need 2 more flights to achieve it so can I just do the cheapest possible return flight say Manchester to London return on the same day or am I missing something? I live up this way hence the suggestion.

    Do they meet the requirements to count as qualifying flights ?

    From the BA website –

    Eligible flights are defined as those flights marketed or operated by British Airways and those flights marketed and operated by Iberia.

    ‘Marketed’ means the flight will have a BA flight number (in your itinerary or on your ticket).

    ‘Operated’ means the aircraft that you travel on is a British Airways aircraft (including franchises and BACityflyer).

    ‘Marketed and operated by Iberia’ means the flight will have an IB flight number and the aircraft you travel on is an Iberia aircraft (including franchises).

    And yes doing a couple of the cheapest flights you can will get you the qualifying flights.
