I have been hearing rumors of a level above Gold for Exec Club members on BA. Wikipedia says that it is called "Premier." Does anybody have any information about what kind of priveledges this status affords you? I would be very interested to know how many people have it and what kind of services they get!!

Thanks


Mayotee- sounds like payotee but isnt.

It's not marketed & is an invitation only level of membership - you cannot "earn" Premier level.....they have BA Special Services at their beck & call, although few want the fuss. Most Premier members I have come across want discretion as much as recognition.

Not sure about numbers, as a LHR based short haul Purser I see maybe 1 a week/10 days.

I also believe that the invite has to be approved by the BA board of directors.

Premier cards are mainly given to people who influence a large amount of spending with BA, however this figure is not published. (I've heard figures in excess of £1M per annum).

From what I understand there are only around 300-400 Premier holders in the world which gives you an idea about the rarity of the card.

The few that I have met have been generally really nice people, however you do get the odd  tapedshut !!

I had a prem on one of my flights I boarded today they were very nice, they generally are. I dont see them too often as I never get allocated First class check in.

I know a guy who is on it. He ended up counting about 200 return trips on concorde plus hundreds of first class worldwide trips.

Makes my AA Platinum tier look pathetic!

that happens across every level of membership.

I deal with them on a day to day basis and 99.99% of them are very nice people. I dont think I have came across any one who I would concider to be a celeberty or any names that stand out.
Quite a few of them seam to have very few tier points or milage either so its not just a club for the top ff.

I think they have me on the invite list. oh boy do I influence a large amount of spending with BA. he he he



I wanna fly but they wont let me :( grr

Premiers are a fairly rare breed. I'm not sure I buy the 300-400 number, as for one I've seen a few of them on my travels and a BA Premier cardholder used to be a poster on Flyertalk and said the number was around 1200 or so.

Benefits are pretty much the same as BA Gold except with a bit more mollycoddling by Special Services as well as anytime use of BA lounges for yourself and two guests regardless of airline you may be flying that day.

There are a few famous ones...Andrew Lloyd-Webber is one for example.

The card itself is pretty smart looking. The last time I saw one was under spotlights and the card looked like it had no name or BA number on it. Then as the person moved they became visible, sparkly silver. Aesthetically it's a winner  Wink

like I said, I havent seen lots of famous people with them so thankfully its not something they just dish out because they are a house hold name.
