If you are traveling on British Airways and booking business class tickets then here’s important information that might bring you worries. UK’s national carrier has decided to change rules pertaining to checked baggage allowance, particularly for its business class customers.
According to the present rules, the customers traveling in Biz Bed and Club World on transatlantic routes are currently allowed to carry three pieces of checked baggage, each weighing up to 32 kg, free of cost. This rule is however being changed now. From May 10 onwards the checked baggage allowance on all flights has been reduced to two pieces. British Airways has said that the existing checked baggage allowance would be honored for all the bookings done before May 10 irrespective of the date of travel.
Those who want to check in a third baggage would be required to pay extra fees. There’s however another rule for Gold cardholders traveling in British Airways’ Executive Club scheme. They are entitled to check in an additional free baggage, and thus allowed to check in three baggage instead of the earlier four baggage on Biz Bed and Club World flights.
Meanwhile, British Airways had earlier this year launched its new lounge at the newly constructed Concourse D in Dubai International Airport. According to the reports, the new concept lounge would be featuring a special Concorde Bar for first class customers. The modern lounge would be offering separate spaces to dine, relax and work to its customers. The premium customers would also be able to make their choices of hot and cold food from a wide selection, in addition to premium beverages available at the Deli Bar. The first class customers can also entertain their guests in an exclusive meeting area in the new Concorde Bar within the lounge. The airline’s first class and Club World (business class) customers as well as gold and silver executive club members would be able to gain access to the lounge.
