Free upgrades to First class on British Airways

  • September 10, 2016

Fancy a free upgrade to First Class? The British Airways’ ever popular free upgrade to First promotion is back. If you hold a Club World (business class) seat for travel between September 7 and December 11, 2016 you can avail the opportunity to upgrade to First Class for no additional cost.

Guests will receive all the extra benefits of First from the bespoke lounges to the comfortable suites on-board and personalised service. Guests can expect to be whisked through fast-track before making their way to the First lounge or Concorde Room (outbound from Heathrow Terminal 5). Once on-board the sophisticated cabin they can settle in to their suite with its 6ft 6inch 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-inch 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.
