In theory, flying QF and crediting to someone else is good for QF. Less costly in points, lounge fees etcHmmm, I just confirmed this (I joined years ago with a UK address).
Seems odd. It made sense during the JV years, but now they are effectively a competitor for QF.
I wonder if they are worried Aussies will rack up status flying QF with little to no benifit to them?
Yes indeed and now my next batch of flights are booked I will reach that milestone on April 5th - 4 years, 3 months and 10 days after first crediting BA....not that I am counting. ........and no, LTGGL is not even a remote possibility for me...It also has LT (OWE).
I am no fan of BA's J product but the bed is one of the best I have slept on. The benefit of BAEC is the upgrade vouchers offered at 2500, and 3500 tp's and then optionally at 7000, 8000 and 9000 TP's. These allow automatic upgrades into F when booking J for all BA flights on a PNR,For those who have watched the videos from Dennis B in Adelaide, I have not forgotten his comments that the best J seat on a BA was window facing back at the rear of the cabin, but the best J seat for long haul was on another airline.
