BA International Long haul fares to suit you

ritish Airways offers you a choice of two fare types when you fly in our long haul economy cabin (World Traveller): Basic and Standard. This extra choice gives you more freedom to select and only pay for the benefits and services you need.

Couple with hand baggage.


Basic fares are ideal for short trips when you are travelling light and want the lowest possible fare. You’ll still enjoy our new and improved complimentary food and bar service, you’ll have an allocated seat when you check in and your fare includes our generous hand baggage allowance of a handbag or laptop, plus a cabin bag. With Basic fares you have the option of paying to add a checked bag, choose your seat, or add other extras via Manage My Booking before you travel.

    Standard fares include a generous 23kg checked baggage allowance on top of your hand baggage allowance, plus you can choose your seat for free from 24 hours before you fly.
