Up until now there hadn't been any signs that the third day of British Airways pilot walkouts (set for 27 September) wasn't going to go ahead and the airline had already started canceling flights ahead of time to try to limit its liabilities.

Toronto No Longer The First Destination To Get British Airways’ Club Suites

The new British Airways Business Class seats (officially called “Club Suites”) are one of the most highly anticipated upgrades to the airline’s offering in years. This is partly because the new suite promises to be very nice indeed, but it’s mainly because the seats that it will be replacing are so out of date they’re in danger of being considered retro.

British Airways Quietly Changes How It Charges For Business Class Seat Selection

One of the more heinous ways in which British Airways gouges passengers for yet more money is by charging for seat selection in the Business Class cabin.

British Airways Pilots & Crews Move A Lot Closer To Industrial Action

American Airlines & British Airways Are Offering “Low Fares To North America” (UK)

The British Airways Black Friday sale will launch tonight at midnight (UK) time but the airline is already promoting a series of transatlantic Economy Class fares in conjunction with its partner American Airlines. As if to show just how closely British Airways and American Airlines are now intertwined the BA press release discussing these fares actually links to an American Airlines web page (here).

Hold Off Buying British Airways Fares (Especially For UK Departures)

There are plenty of reasons I can think of for warning people against buying British Airways fares (your credit card details could appear on the dark web, international Business Class is outdated, short-haul Business Class is a joke etc....) but none of those are the reason I'm suggesting you hold off buying British Airways fares today.

An Often-Overlooked Downside To How British Airways Manages Club Europe

In the US we’re pretty lucky when it comes to domestic premium cabins. The First Class cabins of all three legacy carriers are almost always a significant step up from Economy Class (admittedly this is not a difficult achievement) and it’s relatively easy to make the case for paying a premium to sit up front. In Europe things are different. The premium cabins found on most European short-haul aircraft are mediocre at best and the Club Europe cabins offered by British Airways epitomise the mediocrity on offer.

British Airways Announces Details Of A Club Europe Catering Upgrade

I’ve long said that I don’t see the value in European short-haul Business Class fares because the offering usually isn’t compelling enough to warrant the considerable premium charged over Economy Class. British Airways Club Europe (what the airline calls it’s short-haul Business Class product) offers a very good example of why I generally don’t see the point of booking a short-haul Business Class fare – it’s an all-round mediocre experience.
