On the plane
British Airways is known for its good and inclusive service: even Economy Class passengers can enjoy all offered in-flight services at no additional cost. That way, you will never face unpleasant surprises!
British Airways offers four classes: Economy Class, Premium Economy Class, Business Class and First Class. Economy Class flights within Europe are called Euro Traveller; non-EU flights are called World Traveller. Premium Economy Class also goes by the name of World Traveller Plus. In addition, British Airways distinguishes three types of Business Class: Club Europe (European flights), Club World (intercontinental flights) and Club World London City (flights between New York JFK and London).
If you travel Economy Class, you won’t miss anything: free drinks, snack and newspapers are included on both intercontinental and European flights. On intercontinental flights, you will also get a meal, in-flight entertainment on your personal screen, a pillow, blanket and some personal care products. Not fancy enough? Then you can travel Premium Economy Class, including more spacious seats, power supply and a more extensive menu. Business Class travellers enjoy even more seating space and a luxurious multi-course menu, produced by top chefs. On intercontinental flights, you can sleep comfortably in a lounger that can be adjusted into a flat bed. The ultimate travel experience is preserved for the First Class passenger: you will travel in your own private suite, featuring a completely flat bed with mattress. You will be treated to an exclusive menu and you can choose from various champagnes.
British Airways has a fleet of 280 aircrafts. The bulk of the British Airways fleet consists of Boeing aircrafts, including the very modern Airbus 380 and Boeing 787 Dreamliner.
