BA's On Business allows Australian tax registered entities to sign up but BA will not allow people domiciled in Australia to join Executive Club?

How very strange....

I'm predominantly New Zealand based and i'm unable to join despite pretty frequent BA travel. From what I can gather it's due to some historic tie-up with Qantas which doesn't really appear to exist any longer (at least not sufficiently to justify preventing Australians and New Zealanders from joining, particularly the latter when Qantas is far from the dominant player locally).

It is odd.

I know during the QF/BA JSA both airlines had an agreement - Qantas wouldn't allow UK residents to join QF frequent flyer and BA wouldn't allow Australian residents to join Executive Club.

Since the JSA disolved QF now allows UK residents to join their FFP but BA still hasn't changed it''s policy which is hard to work out.  In fact ba.com says '

"For customers who would like to enrol in a frequent flyer programme in the South West Pacific region, we firmly believe our oneworld partner, Qantas, has an outstanding frequent flyer program. Members of the Qantas Frequent Flyer programme can earn and redeem Points when travelling on British Airways flights.

 Qantas Frequent Flyer programme offers four levels of membership above the entry level of Bronze: they are Silver, Gold, Platinum and Platinum One. Each membership level has particular privileges. The higher your status, the more Qantas Frequent Flyer Points you can earn, and the greater your privileges."

Plugging the ex basically :-)
