Fly Free On BA On Avios
I love to fly British Airways in European Business Class and I love booking Club Europe for free on Avios accrued on by my FREE Amex Gold Card. Contact me for a referral which will get you 22,000 Amex bonus points, 2,000 more than the usual offering (when you spend 2,000GBP in your first three months). You can collect other airline miles too.
The UK British Airways Amex Card is also a great way to collect Avios (you can apply for both this and the Gold card at the same time). You will receive 26,000 Avios if you spend 3,000 GBP in the first three months on the Premium card and get a 2-4-1 free flight after spending 10k GBP. Our referral gets 1,000 more than the usual 25,000. Again, Contact me for a referral.
If you are US based you can find out about a brilliant way to load up on a massive bonus of airline miles in this easy guide.
Is British Airways First and Business Class Any Good?
British Airways First Class is excellent. Business Class or Club World is a disappointing product compared to competitors. The seats are lie flat but they are quite thin in both width and also in terms of padding. Not all seats have aisle access so you have to climb over other passengers to get to the loo if you are in certain seats, and in the others, you get climbed over!
Big Advantage Of Flying First Is Lounge Access
When flying in First you get access to the British Airways iconic Concorde Room. You can only access the Concorde Room if you are travelling in First. You can alternatively get access to the British Airways First Class Galleries Lounge at Gatwick or the Galleries First At Heathrow if you are travelling out of London.
The Concorde Room is only available at London’s Heathrow Airport and New York’s JFK Airport (with smaller, less extensive Concorde bars at Dubai Airport and Singapore Airport). This lounge can only be accessed if you’re flying First Class on an airline in the Oneworld alliance (one guest is welcome as well), or if you hold a Concorde Room card, given out for earning 5,000 tier points in a year.
