If you get downgraded do you still get the original tier points or are they downgraded as well?8th May 2023 at 08:24 in reply to: How early can you get into the First Wing before flying?Omegaman
Does the same apply to GC as a Silver member?
I’m sure it does, we checked in 7hrs before our flight due to hotel check out times on Saturday and visited all 3 lounges.22nd March 2023 at 12:42 in reply to: Adding positioning flight to companion redemption from MadridOmegaman
I’ve done pretty much what u are trying to do.
Booked return Madrid to Santiago on iberia using 2-4-1 (400 pounds and 75000 all in off peak)
Separate reward flight saver from UKto madrid for 1 pounds. And I know I’ll have to collect bags and check them in.
As for the return, it’s probably cheaper to get a cash ticket.
I guess in theory I could add a reward return leg to voucher, but with cash flights as little as 35 quid for one way from madrid to the UK it’s not worth it for me,(I am BA silver) when factoring in tier points and avios on cash ticket.
Sorry to jump in but are those flights business or economy ? I’m looking at doing something similar
Thanks25th February 2023 at 07:53 in reply to: How to book Buenos Aires on Avios points?Omegaman
It may only be showing flights via London because the IB has no business availability. If you start in a Spanish city other than Madrid, you may find better availability. Recent successes for booking flights otherwise full from Madrid to Mexico City, Montevideo and Buenos Aires were A Coruña, Ibiza and Bilbao.
Is there an easy way to find availability ?14th January 2023 at 12:21 in reply to: BA Amex companion voucherOmegaman
£10k is roughly were we are up to. I’ll look into changing it.

Thanks for the reply. I didn’t realise the free card was only economy. Maybe we should have read the small print…😊1st January 2023 at 10:52 in reply to: BA Holidays – Bangkok Airways tier points ?Omegaman
Thanks for the reply. I wasn’t sure, especially as it’s a BA holiday. I was hoping for the double tier points on the second leg as well as the first. Might have to see what else is available.12th December 2022 at 09:39 in reply to: Upgrade questionOmegaman
Thanks for your reply , I thought it would be.21st July 2022 at 18:46 in reply to: Clarification on tier points to renew BA Silver – 300 or 450 tier points?Omegaman
I just had my silver renewed with 380 avois last week. Not sure of the finer details but I definitely got an email a few months back stating it wouldn’t mention it on the app but I would get it.27th June 2022 at 06:45 in reply to: Iberia not recognising BA silver status on bookingOmegaman
@VickyTM – just tested on my booking. So what I did:
1. Login to Iberia MMB (make sure my FF number is correct)
2. Go to select seats – it’s quoting me £11 per person, it’s 2 of us so the total is £22, choose my preferred seats and click Confirm. Now the change is in the “basket” pending the payment.
3. I just close the browser – login back to IB MMB and I can see the new seats confirmed – behold Iberia’s IT. This was an IB flight booked via BA, but I’m pretty sure I did the same steps back in April when I had pure IB booking.
Hope it helps and works for you too.
I did the same thing a couple of weeks ago. Worked for me, booked the exit seats.18th June 2022 at 20:35 in reply to: Reward flight tax ?Omegaman
Ok maybe there wasn’t a free flight but I’m sure there was a cheaper one with more points. We paid around 90,000 plus £500 for two of us.18th June 2022 at 19:33 in reply to: Reward flight tax ?Omegaman
Booked it, Heathrow to Cape Town. £250 each ( we didn’t have the points for a free flight ). Only in WT but not complaining. Think it was classed as a “Reward flight saver”11th June 2022 at 08:03 in reply to: Lon-Doh with BAOmegaman
We’ve just had our Qatar flight changed to BA in September to LGW. Hopefully they will be flying then ?22nd May 2022 at 19:02 in reply to: Who gets the points ?Omegaman
Thanks for the replies. I will make sure we book all future hotels in the same name then.24th March 2022 at 21:20 in reply to: Doha loungeOmegaman
Just to update, we have arrived at Doha and got directed to silver lounge south near gate B1. Looks quite new. A lot better than Gatwick this morning.
Nice upgrade on the BA flight to WTP was a nice bonus…😊23rd March 2022 at 06:17 in reply to: Can’t check in online for flight tomorrow to Phuket via DohaOmegaman
We land at 12:35, hopefully have them back in time for the evening.
Thanks for the reply22nd March 2022 at 19:06 in reply to: Can’t check in online for flight tomorrow to Phuket via DohaOmegaman
Just wondering how quickly you got your results after arriving. Did the hotel make you stay in your room until you got the all clear ?22nd March 2022 at 05:53 in reply to: Can’t check in online for flight tomorrow to Phuket via DohaOmegaman
I might be wrong but I think it’s down to covid paperwork. The airline need to check it personally before check in.
Hope that’s all it is, me and my wife are taking the same route on Thursday.21st March 2022 at 05:42 in reply to: Doha loungeOmegaman
Thanks for the reply. Very mixed reviews recently hopefully we catch it at a quiet time.6th February 2022 at 07:01 in reply to: Spain entry rulesOmegaman
The 270 day vaccination is important. Most people will need to have had a booster jab.6th February 2022 at 06:53 in reply to: Extensions – not yet processed?Omegaman
Is this the last of the extensions do we think ? I just missed the date on the last one.
