British Airways Update – Short Haul Economy Fare Structures

British Airways Update – Short Haul Economy Fare Structures

Effective March 08 2016, British Airways has announced that is simplifying its short haul economy fare structure.

Previously the airline had two types of fares, ‘Hand Baggage Only’ or ‘with Checked Bag’. Each of those could be bought with three levels of flexibility – standard, semi- ex and Fully Flex – depending on whether the customer needed the ability to change their flights. This created six fare type options.
Following customer feedback, the airline will be streamlining to just three fare types, each with increasing levels of exibility; ‘Hand Baggage Only’, ‘with Checked Bag’ and ‘Fully Flex’.

British Airways

Hand Baggage Only:

• Standard hand baggage allowance (no Checked Baggage allowance)

• Seating allocated at check-in or paid for seat selection

• Flight changes can be made for a fee plus any difference in fare

With Checked Bag:

• Includes a 23kg Checked Baggage allowance, plus the standard hand baggage allowance

• Free seat selection from 48 hours prior to departure

• Free flight changes on the day of departure, up to one hour before scheduled flight time

• No change fees (a fare difference may apply if flight is changed before day of departure)

Fully Flex:

• Fully refundable

• Includes a 23kg Checked Baggage allowance, plus the standard hand baggage allowance

• Free seat selection at time of booking• Free flight changes on the day of departure, up to one hour before scheduled flight time

• No change fees (a fare difference may apply if flight is changed before day of departure)

These fare products are only available on short haul point-to-point A-B or A-B-A journeys, i.e. excluding transfers.

On UK domestic routes, Fully Flex fares will be branded ‘Business UK’. These fares include access to British Airways’ lounges and Priority Boarding.
Club Europe fares are unaffected.
