Email from BA:
British Airways tries to get Executive Club members to book last-minute fall & winter travel, as this offer only applies to newly issued tickets.
Not sure how this works with possible passengers caps that Heathrow may have to reinstitute around the year-end holiday period, and is BA and its contractors adequately staffed to handle the traffic?
I have a long-haul BA flight coming later this month, but due to the ticketing date, it won’t earn any promotional Avios.
