BA Silver Status (Oneworld Sapphire) £642

Update: The Tier Point threshold reduction has now been extended to the end of the year, 31 December 2022.

British Airways is also running an excellent promotion for holiday bookings. Executive Club Members that book a holiday (flights + hotel or flights + car) of at least five nights before 22 October 2022, earn double the Tier Points on BA flights.

This promotion is only valid if your journey starts from the UK.

However, this shouldn't be a big problem, you just need to do 2 separate bookings if you don't live in the UK.


450 Tier Points for British Airways Silver Status

Usually, you would need 600 Tier points (TP) and at least four flights with British Airways (BA) to obtain the BA Silver Status. Due to the pandemic, Tier Points (TP's) have been reduced to 450 for the Silver Status.

It was never so easy and cheap to obtain the Oneworld Sapphire status. All you have to do is book a holiday via the British Airways website that will give you 240TP‘s, and as they will be doubled you'll get 480TP‘s.

UK domestic business class flights with British Airways to London will get you 40 TP's already, so don't start your trip from London.

Instead, start from another airport in the UK and route via London.

For example, you could book Manchester to Athens via London Heathrow.

  • Manchester – London Heathrow 40TP
  • London Heathrow – Athens 80TP
  • Athens – London Heathrow 80 TP
  • London Heathrow – Manchester 40 TP

40+80+80+40= 240TP with BA Holiday Promo 2x240TP=480TP
