TPG U.K. Head of Video Jean Arnas flies
economy all the time. He says it’s not his personal
preference, but it happens to fit his budget better.
However, even when flying economy, he wants to enjoy some
benefits on those journeys. Think priority check-in, extra luggage
seat allocation at any time and access to first-class lounges,
even when booking the cheapest economy seat.
The key to these perks is status. And for Jean, who’s based in
the U.K. and flies with BA most frequently, that comes in the form
of holding a British
Airways Gold card. When you achieve Gold elite status within
the BA Executive Club after earning 1,500 Tier Points, you’ll get
said Gold card.
But for those not in the know, 1,500 Tier Points requires
flying. A lot of flying.
You can watch his full experience taking 20 flights in just two
weeks, and learn more about BA status, in the video below:
(Note that until June 2021, you only need 1,125 Tier Points to
reach Gold status, given the
25% reduction due to Covid-19).
