Upgrading Qatar Flights at Easter with BAEC Avios….?
Love reading the blog and staying up to date with all things miles and hotels.
Anyway I have built up a nice 50K of avois recently, and already have a trip booked with Qatar at Easter……IS IT POSSIBLE TO UPGRADE SEATS ON QATAR WITH MY BAEC AVIOS? Man on phone at BA said yesterday said I couldn’t?……But from what I have learnt, I am right to say I can make a new booking though – through Avios Reward search etc.
Your help and knowledge, will be really appreciated.
Happy New Year
Is your existing ticket an award ticket or a cash ticket? If it’s a cash ticket you much have purchased it via BA and it must be in a fare class that is eligible to be upgraded.
Im not sure BA can use avios to upgrade a cash ticket booked for travel on a partner airline.
If you have an existing award ticket though, phone agents should be able to upgrade your ticket. Call again?
