We will be hosting a mix of Instagram and Facebook live events. If you’re a TPG lounge member, you may have caught our first episode of TPG Lemonade where Loyalty and Engagement Editor, Richard Kerr, dove into Avios — the loyalty program of British Airways. Each week, Richard will host two sessions where he’ll teach you the ins and outs of various loyalty programs.
