British Airways Offers ‘J’ Passengers Free Upgrade to ‘F’

British Airways Offers ‘J’ Passengers Free Upgrade to ‘F’

British Airways customers who book a Club World seat between 5th April and 14th June 2016 are being offered the opportunity to upgrade to First one-way for free if they are travelling between 5th April and 28th August 2016.

Sara Dunham, BA’s Head of Marketing, Retail and Direct, said: “Unsurprisingly, these upgrade offers are extremely popular with our customers. For no additional cost, they can enjoy all the extra benefits of First, from the bespoke lounges to the comfortable suites onboard and personalised service. It is a really nice way for us to recognise our customers and give them something back as a thank-you for their booking and their loyalty.”

Customers booking can expect to be whisked through Fast-Track before making their way to the First lounge or Concorde Room (outbound from London Heathrow Terminal 5). Once onboard the sophisticated cabin they can settle into their suite with its 6’6″ bed, personal blinds and wardrobe and  experience a personalised service, complete with an a la carte menu, fine wines and champagne.

Customers flying on one of British Airways’ new Boeing 787-9 Dreamliners will experience the airline’s very latest First class, introduced in late 2015. The cabin is a very private eight-suite space, with four additional storage areas around each seat, including an ottoman, a personal suiter, a locker for small personal effects and a device stowage space complete with device powering capability. In-flight entertainment is shown on a 23″ fixed screen and a smart ‘jog-dial’ manages the seat’s recline, headrest and lumbar inflate and a ‘global’ lighting control to set both ambient and reading lighting.
