BA Household Accounts
« on: June 01, 2011, 05:56:20 PM »
Does anyone know if using a BA Household Account, if booking is limited to only the members of the account?
I have a household account and it is only letting me choose a passenger from the family members.

That is weird. If BA hold bookings, maybe try holding it online and then calling to book.

What airline (metal) are you booking with BA miles?

Yup, that's how I understand it.

Correct, once its a family account, tickets can only be issued to those names.
However, families can grow...

Recent Exp:I had a household account setup with BA when i found a customer for my BA Miles i simply went online to my excecutive account and removed each one by one then just gave the customer my user name & pass,
He had no issues using my miles for tickets.

I read somewhere recently that BA only lets changes be made to a household account every 6 months. is this true? does anyone have experience with this?
From BA.com  16.1.7Once a Household Account is established, new member(s) may not be added or existing member(s) removed more than once every six months. A Household Account may not be dissolved or re-established more than once every six months.

If my family "breaks up", will a previous members contribution be removed from my household account balance?

Yes of course.

So say I have 4 members in my household account with a total of 150k avios, how can I then book a ticket for s/o else? Is the only way to add said person to my family? How about canceling a few of my family members avios accounts, will the avios remain in the household account?

Your question was answered, not sure why you're asking again:

If you cancel any member, then the household will lose that members miles.
So, if you want to book a third party you have to add the reservation.
