British Airways is offering double miles on each member’s first 10 BA flight segments, or British Airways codeshares operated by transatlantic joint venture partners. Registration required.
Register and book by August 31 for travel through December 31. British Airways vacation packages are also eligible for U.S. and U.K.-registered members. Flights booked prior to registration will not earn bonus miles. Customers already loyal to BA aren’t rewarded, because the airline doesn’t want to spend for business it’s getting anyway.
In addition to British Airways’ own flights, BA codeshares on transatlantic joint venture partners are eligible as well (but an American Airlines flight with an American Airlines flight number is not).
The airline explains the reason for the promotion as celebrating the current good times. The global pandemic has sapped air travel demand. U.K. quarantine rules have limited travel further. So pop the bubbly by yourself in a socially-distanced way, fly to or through Heathrow if you’re able, 2020 is something to celebrate. Unless, of course, you’re a British Airways employee facing pay cuts or job elimination, or a Covid patient facing treatment by the National Health Service.
