About bl00dy time too, I fly BA a fair bit, but I pay so want to do it cheap! .. I received this in an email:
We’re delighted to tell you that as of 18 August 2009, you’ll be able to earn Tier Points on every flight* you take with us and our oneworld® partners. This even includes flights on discount economy tickets, for which you’ll receive 25% of the Tier Points you’d earn on fully flexible economy tickets.
It’s a programme change that has been frequently suggested in the feedback we’ve received from our members. Now you’ll have even more opportunities to earn the Tier Points that enable you to move up through the different levels of the Executive Club and enjoy the additional benefits each tier brings.
I hope this programme change will benefit you and that the next time you fly you choose to fly with British Airways.
