Free First Class Upgrade On British Airways


Isn’t this the dream? A free upgrade on British Airways into the exclusive First Class cabin. Most of my readers would consider paying for Club World but just can’t justify the extra expense of British Airways First Class. Well, you are in for a treat and can bag yourself a complimentary upgrade to first class cabin if you book a British Airways’ Club World ticket on flights booked between April 13 and June 26, for travel until September 6, 2015.

Eligible Club World (business class) customers can opt for a free upgrade on one leg of their journey. The top-tier travel class is available on selected international routes that are served with the carrier’s A380, B747, and B777 aircraft.

“By enabling Club customers to get free upgrades we are rewarding their loyalty and custom with a taste of the high life,” said Stephen Humphreys, BA’s head of UK & Ireland sales and marketing.

The first class experience starts with a dedicated check-in area, followed by a concierge service by Quintessentially Lifestyle, which offers 24-hour travel advice. Then it’s off to one of BA’s departure lounges, out of Heathrow this gives you access to the exclusive Concorde Room (don’t forget to prebook your complementary Elemis Massage) to relax with food and fine wines.

Onboard, customers were treated to a private “suite” with a fully flat seat measuring between 14 and 17 inches. It also comes with a personal suitor, mood lighting, a 15-inch entertainment screen, and a leather-topped writing desk. The fine dining experience onboard includes choices from BA’s signature a la carte menu, or from a range of lighter options.
