Upgrading paid BA economy ticket using avios
« on: June 26, 2016, 03:17:34 AM »
Hi,

As per BA website, if there is an award set available then you can upgrade using miles. The amount of miles would be the difference between economy award (20-30K) and business award (50-60K) = 30K to upgrade form econ to business.

My question is - can you upgrade using another persons miles or it needs to be coming from flying passenger?

AFAIK, you can't upgrade economy to business, only to economy+, as BA only allows one-class upgrades.

You also need to be booked in an upgradable fare class.

But yes, you can use another person's miles.
