First is your ticket to exceptional comfort and impeccable service in our most elegant surroundings. It’s the finest way to travel:

  • your own private, spacious suite
  • a fully flat bed with mattress and duvet
  • delicious and indulgent dining
  • access to luxurious lounges and spa treatments
  • exclusive and attentive service
  • board first so that you can settle in at your leisure

My first BA First – how do I maximise it?

Immediate actions – booking your seats

First, you need to know what aircraft type you are on. J is travelling on a B747 and a B777-200.

Booking seats in First class is still thankfully free, unlike Club World on British Airways. Your choice of seats depends on whether you want to sit together and be able to talk or would rather have window seats. If you have a window seat there is a buddy stool where you can join your other half for the meal, but you wouldn’t want to sit on it for much longer than that.

Row 1 will be blocked off for Gold Card Holders from BA’s Executive Club and VIPs which is another option for couples who want to sit together but still have the window seats. It is possible to talk between the seats but you aren’t within touching distance. However, they do have the advantage of being the most private seats and also still have windows. If you are not BA Gold you can sometimes still snag them at on-line check in or even closer to the flight. Remember when you do on-line check in, don’t download your boarding pass or print it unless you are happy with your seats. Until you do this you can keep checking for a better seat to switch to.

Assuming you aren’t bothered about the window and would rather sit together, I would go for the middle seats in row 4. I would avoid row 5 as it is close to the galley and you can often hear the crew talking and plates clattering when you are trying to sleep.


What if you could pay for Club World but enjoy the luxury of First?

The First cabin allows you to relax in exclusive First lounges and enjoy complimentary spa treatments before your flight. Once onboard, you can unwind in the comfort and privacy of your own spacious suite with fully flat bed and dedicated service.

Your free upgrade to First is available one-way on either the outbound or the inbound part of the journey; simply purchase an eligible published semi-flexible R, D, or C class, or a fully flexible J class Club World fare by 7 October 2018.

This offer is available on as many flights as you like when you travel outbound by 23 October 2018.

Upgrades are subject to availability on selected flights.
