BA Gold - never on BA
. So far my only travel on other OW
airlines has been in F. I did a couple of times as a BA
Silver when travelling in WT
+ though. As a Gold I've only ever flown in CW
(or F) where you've got more Golds so less chance of upgrade.
Gold - The best was my a Y-C upgrade on United flying LHR
with my wife last summer. We'd booked fairly late and couldn't get anything reasonable so chose to slum it in E- hoping to pay for E+ at the airport or OLCI. It wasn't available on the way out. On the way back the agent at LHR
said we'd been upgraded as I had 'good mileage with us'. Although not really upgrades I have had a number of E- to E+ bumps since UA
changed the rules whereby *A Golds cannot get E+ gratis. Had one last weekend TPA
on Ted, went to OLCI and pay to upgrade and found we'd already been moved to E+. Sometimes gate and RCC agents have proactively done it, I guess when they see a *G in the very back.
Senator - Only the once when travelling with my BD
Gold father LHR
. He was moved up to C at the lounge (we were on separate tickets) and turned it down as I hadn't got the move. The agent asked to see my boarding card and seemed happy to move me since I was *G too.
