  • Overall Traveler Satisfaction Rate:

British Airways ( BA ) is the flag carrier airline of the United Kingdom and its largest airline based on fleet size, intercontinental flights and worldwide destinations.

British Airways’ tiered loyalty program , generally known as the Executive Club, features access to exclusive lounges and dedicated “fast” queues. BA additionally invites its top corporate accounts to become a member of a “Premier” incentive program. British Airways manages airport lounges for passengers travelling in premium cabins, and these are available to particular tiers of Executive Club members. First class passengers, as well as Gold Executive Club members, are entitled to use First Class Lounges. Business class passengers (referred to as Club World or Club Europe in BA terms) along with Silver Executive Club members may use Business lounges. At airports in which BA does not operate a departure lounge, a 3rd party lounge can often be offered to first-class or status passengers. In 2011, due to the merger with Iberia, British Airways announced adjustments to the Executive Club to maximise integration between the flight companies.

Club Europe is the short-haul business class on all short-haul flights, not including those within the United Kingdom. This class allows for having access to business lounges at most airports. Club Europe offers seats in a 2–2 configuration on narrowbody airplanes, with the center seat not used.

First is the long-haul first class service on British Airways, available on all Airbus A380s, all Boeing 747-400s, certain Boeing 777-200s, and all Boeing 777-300ERs. You will find fourteen exclusive “demi-cabins” per airplane, each one with a 6 ft 6 in sleeping area, a 15-inch wide entertainment display, and in-seat power.

Club World is the long-haul business class on Boeing 767, Boeing 777, Boeing 787, Boeing 747-400, and Airbus A318 and A380 aircraft. The cabin features perfectly flat beds.
