Reply To: When, where and who gets business class company travel?

Back to Forum


Is it based on title / grade? – No, the travel policy applies to all. Bit embarrassing when I went to Madrid recently and I was in business as the ticket was cheaper than economy, and sat behind me and the curtain was our (ex) chief executive!

Distance travelled – over 5 hours, 7 hours, 9 hours… when is business travel granted – if at all? – If travel is over 5 hours then we are entitled to the next class of travel. So if flying BA I get PE rather than E, but Air Canada (for example) gives me business rather than Economy. Clever booking is required, and a good story to tell over times of flights etc.
