To be honest I am BA silver at the moment. If I understand it right, all Silver status holder are exempt from paying those surcharges/fees for Club World/Club Europe–EuroTraveller/Domestic—World Traveller/WTP (exluding exit row seats). Personally as a status holder it is still okay and as I prefer to travel with BA in C cabins, it does not hurt me( probably at the moment untill BA thinks of scrathing those privileges for Silver holder as well—God forbid..!!) but for pax who aren’t status holder and paying a prem.cabin fare without pre assigning privilege–it will be really P****!!
I will be full honest here. I think I am bias about this subject as I am personally not concerned.
