Good news from British Airways today (via Business Traveller), all BA Executive Club Gold Card holders will now receive two upgrade vouchers for one person when they hit 3,500 tier points rather than just a single voucher for two people.
As many Gold Card holders frequently travel alone (whether on business or for pleasure), this new voucher arrangement is much more useful:
At 2,500 Tier Points we will award you with a voucher that you and a companion can use towards an upgrade to the next cabin of your choice subject to availability. If you earn 3,500 Tier Points we will award you 2 Gold Upgrade for one vouchers which you can use for yourself or to travel with a companion.
The other Gold Card upgrade benefits remain the same as in the past:
At 5,000 Tier Points, you will receive the Concorde Room Card, your key to the most luxurious and well-appointed lounges at London Heathrow Terminal 5 and New York JFK Terminal 7, the perfect setting for both relaxation and business.
At 5,000 Tier Points, you will also receive two Executive Club Silver Partner Cards and one Gold Partner Card, so that you can share your benefits with those who matter to you most. Alternatively, you can receive this benefit by earning 3,000 per year in two consecutive years.
It’s good to hear that BA is listening to the views and feedback from its loyal frequent flyers.
