After the recent flights to Los Angeles and Sydney I’m no longer a Blue but rather a Bronze Member of the British Airways Executive Club. I now have a real membership card, the Blue Membership card is a virtual one on the BA app, and a couple of rather nice luggage tags.
Every time you book a flight with BA you earn a number of tier points. The number you get varies on the following: How far you are flying, What class of cabin you fly in and the flexibility of the ticket. The more tier points you collect during your membership year the higher up in the Executive Club you climb.
So what does being a Bronze Member mean? Well I can now use priority business check in, free reservations of seats 7 days before the flight rather than 24hrs and a higher priority when boarding the aircraft even if I book World Traveller [Economy]. As a Bronze Member you also get 25% more AVIOS loyalty points to spend on flights, upgrades or in flight purchases if flying European short haul.
The most important benefit of all, I get to pretend to be Royalty whilst still being a peasant….
