Now I don't see the BA option at all (see attached), probably down for maintenance.

We're sorry, but this reward is not available in the Membership Rewards program.

I highly doubt Amex dropped BA without any advance notice, though come to think about it they've dropped several other Chase partners, and Priority Club is ending their MR partnership as well.

Well, it's still not back, but I'd bet it's just maintenance.

Even though they dropped other Chase partners, they gave a pretty meaningful amount of advance notice (at least with CO). I'd be pretty surprised if they just cancelled the BA partnership out of the blue like that.

MR rep just told me that the promo was launched again, now June 1 - July 31.
And again with a 50% promo.

Not sure if she knows what she's talking about. Maybe she was confusing with last years promo that ran this time period. But would be very sweet if true.

Can anyone else try confirming this?

I can read, too :)

But you'll notice my comment was 13 minutes before Side Incomer's comment, and at that point BA was still MIA.

I would get her to notate my account.
