    Default British Airways Executive Club

    GENERAL QUESTIONS
    Can I pay part cash and part miles?
    Yes, select the appropriate option when booking online. Though this is not the best use of BA Miles.

    Do BA Miles expire?
    Yes. If your account has not been used to redeem or earn BA miles within three years then the balance will be reset to zero. You therefore need to keep it active.

    Please see the (soon to be added) section on earning BA Miles elsewhere for ideas on this. You can also purchase BA Miles direct from BA up to a maximum per annum.

    Do flights with GB Airways earn BA Miles?
    Executive Club members also earn Tier Points and can earn and redeem BA Miles with the following airline partners which operate as British Airways:

    BMED
    British Airways CitiExpress Ltd
    Comair Pty Ltd (South Africa)
    GB Airways Ltd
    Loganair Ltd
    Sun–Air of Scandinavia A/S

    Benefits of British Airways American Express Premium Plus Card
    The BA American Express Premium Plus card also gives double miles (3 miles/1) for any spend direct with British Airways, including onboard shopping.

    Fees
    The Premium Plus American Express card costs 120 per annum but this can be reduced to 30 if you have a standard American Express Blue card as well. It is possible that you may need to have the American Express Blue card for six months before you get being eligible for the reduction.

    What is the American Express 2-4-1 Voucher
    British Airways American Express card offers all holders the chance of a free ticket once they hit a certain spending threshold within their cardholder year. These thresholds are 10,000 for the Premium Plus, 15,000 for the Premium and 20,000 for the stand. The ticket can then be used when making a booking one person will pay the fare and taxes the other will theoretically travel free but will still need to pay taxes.

    The Premium Plus BA American Express is 1.5 miles per 1 with an annual fee of 120*.
    The basic BA American Express is 1 mile per 1 with no annual fee.
    The number of miles are doubled for spend with BA (using BA.com, BA telesales or onboard shopping)

    *By holding an American Express Blue card which has an annual fee of 15 but reduced to 0 if you spend 500 on it, you get the Premium Plus BA American Express for 30 instead of 120.
