Don’t Pay an Arm and a Leg for Extra Legroom With BA

Posted October 30, 2008 by BookingBuddy

Airbritishairwys777 Ever been about to check in, and then decided, at the very last minute, that you want to live the high life and get a seat upgrade? It used to be that you had to be famous or own a company before the airline deigned to allow you that sort of privilege.

But recently, British Airways came up with a better idea—you’re able to spend your hard earned cash and splurge on an upgrade, even right up to the very last minute. Unless you’re Heather Mills, this sounds like a pretty decent idea.

The service was first offered at Gatwick Airport last year, and has proved so popular that BA is also introducing it to Heathrow Airport. Passengers will have the choice of paying extra during check-in to move their seats to the Club Europe business-class cabin or the World Traveller Plus premium-economy cabins.

And just in case you think it’s going to end up costing you an arm and a leg (which you probably would have lost when someone sat on top of you in economy class anyway), fear not, the service only costs £100 for European flights and £180 for flights further ashore. When you think about it, it’s not a lot of dosh to shell out to avoid a sweaty neighbour sitting on your lap during a long-haul journey.
