British Airways European Economy Class Flight Reviews


In this trip report, I include all my British Airways European Economy Class or Coach Class flight reviews. If you travel around Europe on British Airways, you have the choice of flying in Coach or Economy, or European Business Class. At the moment all the BA planes offer these two classes.

It is worth noting that Economy is not the same on all British Airways planes. On most current planes the seats recline and are relatively comfortable. On most planes the Economy seats are 3×3 across the plane, the Business Class seats are 2×2 as British Airways have wedged a small into the middle seat. On the new A320 Neo Plane, the seats are thinner and do not recline, Business Class does not have a centre table. On the B767, the Economy seats are in a 3-3-3 arrangement, so take a look at the plane you are flying on, as this will affect which sort of Economy Class layout and seat that you will experience.

Food-wise in Economy, you can take a look at the paid British Airways Spring menu. You can buy food and drink with credit card or Avios.

For me, the reason to fly Club Europe rather than Economy or Coach, is to get access to the British Airways airport lounges which are very good when flying out of London Heathrow and London Gatwick. Out of Heathrow you get access to the Heathrow Galleries Club South Lounge or the Galleries Club North. Out of Gatwick you get access to the British Airways Business Lounge. All three lounges are excellent and are used by travellers flying Club Europe and Club World. For me, the use of these lounges makes it worth flying Club Europe on outbound flights from London.

Below you will find my most recent flight reviews of British Airways European Economy Class or Coach (Named Euro Traveller), you can draw your own conclusions.
