    BA status
    Advice please.

    BA Executive club membership date 09 Dec.
    Flew first class from Syd to LHR on 05 Dec 2022.
    On 07 Dec 2022 awarded 360 tier points.
    On 09 Dec 2022 all tier points removed.

    I really can’t imagine you keep newly earned points for only two days. Can this be correct?

    If your BAEC year ends on 8 December which is implied in your post, yes, on 9 December you are in a new collection year and your tier points reset to zero.

    Yes. TP’s are reset at the beginning of every membership year. Any status you have achieved by those TP’s in the previous membership year will then be carried over.

    Don’t worry, you’ll get better at TP-earning strategising 🙂

    Out of interest, is there a known record of the speed to reach 35k TP’s? I’ve been a member for years (although only doing serious business travel for the last 15), have been Gold for 10 yrs and I’m still miles away!

    If you collect other TPs and gained status during your membership year, that would carry over to the following year, so until the end of Jan 24 in this case.

    But I am just wondering now – you have only just noticed that the TPs were removed 6 months later?

    35k divided by 1500 TPs per year for Gold = 23+ years (this does not take into account the reduced threshold during pandemic)

    On the other hand if you’re consistently going for GGL it would take you 10 years. Some people do get 5k TPs a year so that would be 7 years.
