    Don't believe so. Think you have to commit and if you change your mind you are hit with the cancellation fee.

    No. If you cancel online, it's a $40 cancellation fee, which is reasonable considering other airlines charge as much as $150 :eek:

    Also, if you use Cash + Avios to make a booking and cancel a ticket, make sure you get the Cash portion back. BA owes me $65 from a C+A booking and it's in their 2-week pipeline to get reviewed :rolleyes:

    GGL members can put Avios bookings on hold for around 72 hours. I believe they may hold bookings for Gold Card Holders, possibly for 24 hours. But then we could book and cancel without fee.
