Thought you may find this amusing.

If a flight leaves T5 more than 15 mins after scheduled time you get 5,000 BA miles courtesy of WIllie Walsh.

I am currently in the First Lounge waiting for BA444 to AMS Scheduled dep 20:00 - for the last 30 minutes showed as a 20:19 departure which would give me 5,000 miles - hurrah!!!

By some miracle the board now shows a departure time of 20:15  Wow!

Surely not a coincidence????

Yes all the info is updated from BAs systems and Heathrows ATC system. The change was almost certainly triggered when it came off the stack early due to below average holding.

Theres no manual intervention until a dispatcher starts work at around -40 mins.

The estimate doesnt matter anyway, its what time it actually goes that matters.

Unlucky lol Big grin


Not a bad idea from BA. One hell of a confident move and one that I hope won't turn round to bite them on the arse.

I think it is a good idea, with the punctuality figures at the moment being very high it might not be used too much. But if a flight goes late then it is a good reward for the regular travellers.

It was in BA's UK website some time ago. I can't find it now so it may have had an expiry date. I believe it was restricted to BA Executive Club members living in the UK.

And I guess BA's ontime performance will grow during winter with less flights to operate...
