Flying British Airways Club World was an experience in and of itself. Known for its esteemed reputation, British Airways still ranks as one of the best airlines to fly with worldwide. Headquartered in the United Kingdom, the airline offers routes globally across all six occupied continents. The airline typically offers four classes onboard: Economy, Premium Economy, Business, and First. Within the British Airways Business Class, it’s important to note that there are two fares. Fly short-haul through Club Europe, or worldwide through Club World.
Different Fares in Business Class
Club World and Club Europe both fall under the Business class of British Airways airlines. Both offer generous baggage allowance. Included in the fare passengers can bring one full-sized carry on onboard, as well as a personal item. You’ll also be able to check in two standard checked bag with both. If you upgrade to first class, your checked bag allowance jumps up to three.
Lounge Access with British Airways Club World
Flying in the Club World or Club Europe Business Class, grants you immediate access to over 30 of British Airways lounges worldwide, and more than 100 partner lounges. To remain on par with British elegance, lounge decor is modern with a touch of grace. Food & beverages are available to guests looking to relax and unwind before a flight.
What to Expect On Board with Club World
I flew the British Airways 777 from London to Boston in their Club World Business Class. I was extremely satisfied in the club suites to say the least. Seats in a herringbone layout offered extendable dividers if you wanted a little more privacy. Each pod has a door which was to stay open for takeout and landing, but could close during the remainder of the flight.
There is ample shelving/table space for storage during the flight, including a closable compartment for belongings next to the seat. The club suites offer sufficient leg-room, with a small foot-stool for tired legs. Lay-flat seats are a luxury on flights, especially when they come with your own privacy door and blankets. You’ll no doubt get a well-deserved sleep on board British Airways.
British Airways has proudly partnered with luxury lifestyle brand, White Company, to provide top-of-the-range amenity kits for passengers. A soft eye mask, cozy socks, and woven blanket are among some of the many treats you’ll find inside.
Dining in Club World Class
British Airways Club World is 5-star dining in the skies. The flight began with a complimentary glass of champagne: which is always welcome. After takeoff, the cocktail menu was open with an array of flavors. I opted for the whisky-based cocktail free of charge for Club World guests.
In Club World guests can choose between a selection of main course options. On some routes, British Airways signature afternoon tea is available. The first course consisted of an assortment of breads and a small bowl of cheeses from around the world. I chose the creamy gazpacho to accompany these. It was surprisingly extremely fresh and plated aesthetically.
Changing their menu frequently, British Airways prides itself on providing guests with excellent service and offering a new experience each time. My main course was a British staple: chicken pot pie worthy of being served in a restaurant. It was absolutely delicious- and I did finish it all. Saving the best for last. Dessert was a chocolate mousse with an added bonus: a piece of dark chocolate carefully placed on top.
