British Airways has been flying Down Under for 77 years. In April, they introduced their brand-new 777s to the Sydney-London route via Singapore. From New Zealand, the connections to Sydney on Qantas are precision-timed so that your layover is kept to a minimum.
Relax and unwind in your ergonomically designed seat, complete with lumbar support, adjustable headrest and recline. Personal in-seat power supply sockets are a feature of every row and class. The breadth and depth of BA’s movie options are particularly impressive.
You would have to be very hard-to-please, not to have your entertainment tastes covered. The in-flight food and beverage service is top knotch, whether you’re in Club World or World Traveller. What a joy to wake up to a full English breakfast, at 35,000 feet.
But it’s the British Airways flight attendants, so easy-going, effervescent and attentive, that gives the in-flight experience its winning edge. They’re very British, very classy, but always up for a laugh. An exemplary airline option to get to the UK and Europe. In London, you’ll arrive and depart from the award-winning Heathrow Terminal 5, with capacity to handle 30 million passengers annually. The glistening refurbished terminal is such an effortless, comfortable affair to navigate you way through, compared to the older terminals of the past.
British Airways is one of the few airlines in the world to offer 4 cabins on the majority of its long-haul flights. These are World Traveller, World Traveller Plus, Club World & First Class. Like most airlines however, there are different versions of the various cabins depending on the route and type of aircraft deployed to service it. World Traveller is BA’s economy class product and the cabin, alas, that most of us will never progress beyond. Before the flight, and from 24hrs before departure, you can check in online or via mobile phone, choose your seats and print off a boarding pass. For those who prefer to wait, it is possible to check in at the airport instead. World Traveller passengers are entitled to one piece of free checked-in luggage (max weight 23kgs), plus you can take 2 pieces of hand luggage onboard the aircraft. BA is currently in the process of updating World Traveller with a more contemporary look, brand new seats and significant enhancements to the inflight entertainment – a screen than is 35% bigger than before, a wider range of programmes, a USB & RCA combo port and in-seat power socket. This is now available on the Kangaroo route, to and from London Heathrow.
British Airways was the pioneering airline to introduce a dedicated business class cabin and, since then, its Club World service has won awards and admirers across the world. The whole experience begins at the airport with access to a variety of lounges providing complimentary food & drinks, internet access and somewhere to relax or work in peaceful, comfortable surroundings. Once onboard, work or relax in your own personal space, with a generous sized desk, in-seat phone and personal laptop power socket. The new AVOD Entertainment system offers over 200 entertainment options with crystal clear sound thanks to the noise-cancelling headphones provided. British Airways was the first airline in the world to provide seats that convert into entirely flat beds. Recent innovations to the Club World seats have made them more spacious and comfortable than ever. Club World allows you to dine in the airport lounge pre-flight, so that fater take-off, you can get straight to work or sleep. However, if you wish to dine inflight, the Club World Menu is designed and inspired by some of the world’s leading chef’s. For further info jump to www.ba.com
