Say hello to comfy flatbeds with upgrades on British Airways!
Booking on a BA flight isn’t quite as simple when you are looking for the cheapest flight that works for you. And even if you find cheap flights well in time, the best one is always the upgraded class that allows you more relaxed seating that helps you stretch in comfort and get the luxurious experience of traveling in the higher class without spending a lot of money.
British Airways come up with unbelievable travel deals especially to Europe, LA, and San Francisco.
Recently they made a very popular change of allowing all fares (except the three very lowest economy fares Q, O, and G) to be upgraded to the next class. There are many upgraded business class seats that are advertised for an upgrade and you can even upgrade any premium economy ticket to score a win.
However, these upgrades are available one notch above the class you originally booked. So if you’re in economy, premium is as far as you can go and similarly from premium to business or business to first. However, even if advertised, these paid upgrade to the next cabin are no guarantees as they are subject to conditions.
The cost of these upgrades is based on the cost difference whether it is in terms of the Avios points or whether you are paying in cash. As a thumb rule, upgrading with British Airways is cheaper using the Avios points. However, if you book through Avios points only, British Airways won’t allow you to earn miles or tier points. If there are seats available that can be booked using Club World miles, you can go for upgrading easily as well.
If you are looking for the cheapish upgrades, its best to contact booking services like Faremachine which sell unbelievably cheap airfares, come up with regular deals, and also have special unpublished prices not available elsewhere. Also understand that like all the other airlines, howsoever the airline may claim to follow an open practice, they don’t advertise many lucrative upgrade offers for the fear of higher class tickets getting unsold. Baring this, proactive upgrades do reflect on their MMB page.
