With the British Airways sale in full swing at the moment, the airline has also announced it is offering free one-way upgrades from Business Class to First Class.
The First upgrade promotion will be available to customers who book return tickets in Club World, however the upgrade will be available on one leg of their journey only, so they must choose between the outbound or the return leg.
Bookings cannot be made online through ba.com – instead passengers must book through a travel agent or over the phone by December 10th. Upgrades are available for outbound travel before December 23rd and inbound travel by December 31st, and are valid on any fully flexible J class or semi-flexible C, D and R classes in Club World.
Upgrades are also possible on American Airlines operated flights on eligible routes to the US, Canada and Mexico when booked with a BA codeshare flight number. The offer is always incredibly popular, so it’s important to book early to avoid missing out on the opportunity to fly First.
Passengers who collect frequent flyer miles with BA Executive Club will also be pleased to know that if they qualify for the promotion, they will be awarded Avios and Tier Points for the cabin they actually fly in.
To book your free upgrade to First Class, call SkyClub on 020 255 1234 before December 10th. Upgrades are subject to availability and must be made at the time of booking. The BA Sale continues until September 26th, so there are two weeks left to take advantage of cheap Business Class fares.
