Reply To: Book’n upgrade

Back to Forum


Just to clarify for any readers considering using BA miles for upgrade (MFU) – discounted/non-flexible premium economy (World Traveller Plus) and business class (Club World) tickets may be upgraded to one class higher in this way, but not discounted/non-flexible economy (World Traveller) tickets.

In the latter case, only flexible economy tickets may be upgraded with miles which, not unexpectedly (though arguably illogically), usually renders an ‘economy-upgraded-to-premium-economy’ ticket more expensive than a ‘premium-economy-upgraded-to-business’ ticket.

A sample UK-US MFU itinerary, for example, prices up at £771 for travel in premium economy, but just £661 in business class – in both cases with the addition of 25,000 BA miles.
