British Airways Mixed Fleet Second Strike

Was researching flight options using various tools such as ITA Matrix, Kayak and Skyscanner, when I saw some weird anomaly on British Airways flights that were considerably cheaper on Ctrip than on BA’s own website or other OTA’s. I thought that their inventory would be just off and the purchase simply wouldn’t go through. How wrong I was.

Update: Original Routing Credit From British Airways Executive Club For Malaysia Airlines Flight Disruption

3 Comments

A few weeks ago I wrote about a bad experience with a delayed Malaysia Airlines flight and that I was rebooked to a Star Alliance direct flight instead, leading me to claim original routing credit with BAEC.

British Airways responded positive to my request, however they required to check directly with Malaysia Airlines in order to verify my claim which was done in the past two weeks.

Original Routing Credit: Why It Can Pay Off To Ask For A Different Airline When Experiencing Irregular Operations

10 Comments

Every so often travelers experience interruptions in their travel plans when flights are delayed or cancelled and then people might find themselves rebooked on a different airline than originally booked.

Even if the new flight is on a different alliance that doesn’t partner with your frequent flyer program there is still a way you can not only get the miles for your original booking but also double dip and earn miles at a second program.

REMINDER: British Airways Blocks Cathay Pacific Online Award Availability Approximately Within A Week Of Departure – May Be Available Calling

9 Comments

British Airways started selectively blocking partner awards from close in online bookings last year and merely returns a message that no awards availability exists when that is not the case.

Cathay Pacific

The airline that is mostly affected with this is Cathay Pacific (S7 was briefly too) and its routes within Asia-Pacific that are almost all blocked within a week of departure. British Airways claims that this is to combat “fraud” but I would assume that the real reason is cash.
