Update On British Airways Executive Club Earnings Error For Japan Airlines: Adjusted Booking Classes Now Live!
For about two months now a reader is seeking remedy for an obvious error in British Airways Executive Club earning structure for Japan Airlines on the Helsinki-Narita Route in Business Class.
I wrote about this in early January and even contacted BA to show them the issue, just to receive relies from them that make absolutely no sense whatsoever, now they have realigned booking classes.
When I was going through the British Airways First Wing tonight, Terminal 5 check-in area for BA first-class and Oneworld Emerald members, I noticed something that hadn’t been there previously.
I was surprised to see bolted in credit card readers in the check-in desks that just displayed a message
“Amadeus – Welcome.”
British Airways was celebrating its 100th anniversary in 2019, and some Executive Club members received gifts from the airline (read more here).
BA also remembered employees by gifting them a luggage tag/keyring that was made of decommissioned 747-400 (and we bought one off eBay).
A friend of mine recently flew on British Airways from Helsinki to Denver and, due to availability issues, ticketed the return DEN-LHR flight on Finnair codeshare.
The first two segments posted just fine to her Executive Club account, but the return did not. I said to her that she would need to do a retroclaim with the airline (BA), and this is when the issues started.
