If you (or your company) are members of the Star Alliance Company Plus scheme they are offering a lucrative bonus:
Earn TRIPLE PlusPoints on ALL Lufthansa, Austrian Airlines, Brussels Airlines, Germanwings, LOT Polish Airlines, ANA, SWISS, TAP Portugal and United Airlines flights from Sept-Nov’13!
Take advantage of this fantastic offer and register today to earn 3x regular PlusPoints on all Lufthansa, Austrian Airlines, Brussels Airlines, Germanwings, LOT Polish Airlines, ANA, SWISS, TAP Portugal and United Airlines flights.
You must register with your company account login on the web site. Note: These are not Frequent Flyer Miles in to the flyers account, but SACP points in to the company account. They can be used for free flights, taxi’s, the Heathrow Express and goods from the Lufthansa Worldshop.
Also worth noting that United now offers SACP points on ‘P’ class fares.
Company Administrators received an email from Star Alliance Company Plus (the business earning scheme for certain Star Alliance airlines). This informs us that bmi tickets will no longer SACP earn points for bmi flights after 19 April. Many organisations will already have tickets purchased in advance which now will not earn points. It is clearly disappointing and I am not sure a very good move for BA.
More concerning is the last paragraph where BA informes SACP that bmi/BA ‘will endeavour to honour such bookings’. A little worrying if you are the passenger and BA endeavours fail to honour the booking!
BA has its own Company rewards scheme – OnBusiness which one might hope would earn us points for flights from the 20th. But no details on earning there of course!
I fear this really is a very poorly handled sale from the passengers viewpoint.
