I don’t know how accurate this website is, but seems to have a handy reference table to determine which (if any) 261 regulation applies.5th December 2023 at 09:33 in reply to: Denied by Dufry – how to get from LHR T3 to T4 airside?Skywalker 540 posts

Luxury escapes, spend £1k get £200 back, seen on Amex Plat.
Not sure if accumulative spend counts.29th November 2023 at 11:18 in reply to: Just had 96,000 Nectar points stolenSkywalker 540 posts
It would take an article in a major newspaper before they take any action.
Already appeared in a few – nothing much done so far:28th November 2023 at 17:00 in reply to: Just had 96,000 Nectar points stolenSkywalker 540 posts
Amateur hour at Nectar:
I contacted Nectar to enquire as to whether or not my account had actually been closed, since I had received no email confirmation.
They confirmed it had indeed been closed.
I asked why I hadn’t received an email or text confirming this. They said no such process exists, and that only Nectar can deactivate accounts after customer verification on the telephone << not true.
Nectar really couldn’t see the issue here.
Easy account deactivation + no customer notification = scammer paradise27th November 2023 at 18:57 in reply to: Just had 96,000 Nectar points stolenSkywalker 540 posts
I don’t use Nectar in any meaningful way, so my personal preference is to close my account.
Nectar didn’t send an email or a 2FA to verify, or even an email to acknowledge that I had closed my account.27th November 2023 at 10:32 in reply to: Just had 96,000 Nectar points stolenSkywalker 540 posts

@davedent, did you do this run in the sweet spot of the TP collection year (as in, the part of the year that gets you almost 2 years of status)?22nd November 2023 at 06:12 in reply to: Black Friday deals?Skywalker 540 posts
Saw this text on the BA website when looking at BAH:
Offer 1: Black Friday Offer: £50 Saving incl. Book by 27 Nov
Offer 2: Black Friday Offer: £100 Saving incl. Book by 27 Nov
I don’t know what the threshold is as to which point the offer changes from the £50 to £10021st November 2023 at 21:52 in reply to: Does Amex offer airport transfers?Skywalker 540 posts
thanks @executiveclubber19th November 2023 at 12:57 in reply to: Black Friday deals?Skywalker 540 posts
The Melia BF website doesn’t tell you when the applicable/qualifying dates are (or at least, I can’t readily see it), so it seems you have to search and search until the website throws something up.
On the home page, in the Black Friday banner at the top, click ‘learn more’.
On the next page click ‘see conditions’
In addition to the list of participating properties it states:
“Booking period: 17/11/2023 – 26/11/2023
Stay period: 17/11/2023 – 20/12/2024*”
That’s great! Thanks!19th November 2023 at 10:00 in reply to: Black Friday deals?Skywalker 540 posts

Signed up for BAPP card with the 70k bonus point.
Specifically used the Amex website link.
They are now saying they’ve no record of me using that link.
I 100% did.
They are at it.
Anyone else having this issue?
I thought people had to use the link on the BA page to get the 70k offer?
Or did they change this?3rd November 2023 at 18:49 in reply to: Onyx Priority Travel – scam?Skywalker 540 posts
If you are going to lie at least make it credible for those of us here.
the use of all three major alliance logos side-by-side on the website cannot possibly be legit. Then again, there’s a free trial… anyone want to take one for the team, and try with a disposal card number?
Off you go then, @memesweeper 😉
I wonder what @Rob & co make of this?
This would make a great exposé article if it turns out to be scam (or indeed, a future partnership in the making if not)!2nd November 2023 at 21:26 in reply to: Onyx Priority Travel – scam?Skywalker 540 posts
It looks like there is only now one review?!
The negative one has been removed.2nd November 2023 at 18:09 in reply to: Onyx Priority Travel – scam?Skywalker 540 posts
2 reviews: one from an extremely satisfied customer who has never reviewed anything before, and the other from someone who thinks they’ve been scammed.2nd November 2023 at 11:54 in reply to: Post new Amex statement credit offers here!Skywalker 540 posts

Ah, that’ll be it – so BA IT is not to blame (and therefore off the hook today 😀 )
Thank you – I will try AA.1st November 2023 at 05:43 in reply to: BA customise trip – USA domesticSkywalker 540 posts
I’ve tried again.
Mission: Price up NYC area to LAX or SFO or even SEA for next year.
“Sorry there are no flights”
I would prefer BA, but their limited website means I am now considering defecting to another airline.
