Does anyone ever travel using British Airways miles?
What a bunch of complete MUPPETS!
I travel to the UK average once a year to visit family and friends, and as I have a BA credit card with RBC, decided to use my miles to pay for the flight ...
Upon transferring 50,000 miles to BA following the advices of a BA rep on Monday, I have been told in many different way over several hours this morning, that I should get lost. I wanted to travel in mid May 2010 ... and apparently the "miles" seats have been booked up since December 2008!!
Of course, the BA rep on Monday did not feel it was necessary to advise me to check on this ... although they of course use the failsafe of "subject to availability" ...
I ended up checking the website in greater detail and it did in fact confirm that people are booking up approx. 1 1/2 years ahead of time on the BA miles .... being single, 30 and a Mooseman, I have absolutely no idea when or where I will be in that time ... not even God knows that!!
So basically, I have been shafted by BA's corporate banditry.
50,000 BA miles sitting there rotting away ... great.
What a great rant ... I love rants ... but most of my best rants are about women ...
Anyways, Mooseman out.
