I went and updated my address and got this - and yet the details have stuck in my account.

Sorry​


According to the new information you have attempted to give us, your preferred address is no longer within the country to which you are currently registered. As this requires us to transfer your membership to another region, you will need to contact your current Service Centre in order to make this change.
We therefore have not updated your profile with other amendments you may have requested. If you wish, you can go back and review your original profile to make any changes that do not require a transfer of membership.

They don't want to let me move from Wales to Australia.
And yet when you click "Continue", the details do stick. I'll give them a call on the GGL line to check.

Called the UK GGL line - the online update happened and there is nothing more to do - you can safely ignore the alert as long as your updated account shows the correct address.

So I can move back home from Devon.
Now only have to move my AA billing address back home from Maine.

.I have one of those Scottish titles (a gift from a friend who obviously recognises class when she sees it) so I may have to update my address and add my title.
One way to get a UK address, and you get to help an environmental cause, is to 'gain' yourself a Scottish Title - ignore what that @TonyHancock chappie said.

Sign up to Highland Titles (Highland Titles | Become a Laird, Lord or Lady of Glencoe), get yourself the right to a square foot of land (MrsK pictured standing on our estate) and use their office address. And you can select 'Lady' from the drop down titles when setting up a Qantas booking.

I've changed my address to Coffs Harbour and added my scottish title so the BA site now addresses me as Lord J...

Looks good; can't wait to see the reaction when it appears on my next BA boarding pass.

Given BAEC has a 3 year addition or your points expire rule, does anyone have any suggestions for adding a minimum 1 avio from Australia to keep your Avios alive ?

Well now I believe in Faries. I just logged into my BAEC account and magically one Avio has been credited under
“Avios Reward Flight Saver Activation“, thus extending the balance validity for another 3 years. Apparently this is being done randomly. Thank you BA. 😄

Wow, that's great. I need activity before the end of this year and wasn't one of the lucky ones to be credited one Avios. Out of interest, is your address listed as AU/NZ and when were your miles due to expire, if you don't mind me asking?

Address is located in the UK. I have no BA status and Avios were expiring in August 22. Search “Avios Reward Flight Saver Activation” and there’s a discussion on FT.

Have never really bothered with them in the past but definitely something to think about especially with QF continuing to punish us for flying out of ADL with other OW members
