Free upgrades to First

For a limited time, enjoy a free one-way upgrade to BA’s most luxurious cabin when you book selected Club World return flights. And in case you need any persuading, here are six reasons to fly First

1. An exclusive lounge
Recharge your batteries before your flight in a BA First departure lounge stocked with drinks and snacks, plus handy business facilities. You can also use the Concorde Room at Heathrow Terminal 5 and New York JFK Terminal 7, where you’ll find discreet dining booths, full waiter service, private cabanas and a business suite.

2. Onboard comfort
Whether you’re looking to unwind or work, you’ll find your First seat equally well equipped. This means a power supply for laptops, wellbeing essentials for freshening up, and an impressive 198cm (6ft 6in) fully flat bed, with a luxurious quilted mattress, crisp white cotton duvet and pillow. There’s also entertainment to view on your 15-inch screen, including the latest films, documentaries and television, as well as music, audio books and games.

3. Height of good taste
Raise a glass to BA’s delicious inflight menu, designed with some of the world’s top chefs. Breakfast, lunch, dinner and afternoon tea are all available when it suits you, plus there are Champagnes, wines, spirits and soft drinks.

4. Speedy check-ins 
With dedicated check-in desks for First customers at most airports, and priority boarding, you’ll fly through the airport. There is also Fast Track security at Heathrow, Gatwick and New York JFK, and Fast Track arrivals at Heathrow for non-EU passport holders.

5. More baggage than you can carry
With First you can travel as light – or as heavy – as you like, thanks to an ample baggage allowance that includes one cabin bag plus a laptop or handbag on board, and up to three bags in the hold.

6. Your own private concierge
The exclusive complimentary concierge service from Quintessentially Lifestyle is your passport to 24-hour expert travel advice, insider access to restaurants, events and more. You can use it whenever you travel in First through Heathrow Terminal 5 or New York JFK.
