BA launches online upgrades from LHR

7 Oct 2008 by Mark Caswell

BA passengers can
now purchase “before they fly” upgrades on European and long-haul flights
departing Heathrow.

Customers can now
buy upgrades online after they have purchased their tickets, to Club Europe on
European flights, or World Traveller Plus on long-haul routes. The upgrades
cost between £100 and £150 one-way for European routes, and between £150 and £250
on long-haul flights.

This option to
upgrade after having bought your ticket has been available to Gatwick
passengers since March 2007, but up until now the opportunity to upgrade for
those departing Heathrow had to be taken at the point of purchase.

Passengers can
access the upgrade option for their flight at, or via
the email alert sent by BA before the flight. Note that unlike Gatwick flights,
where passengers can opt to upgrade at
check-in, Heathrow customers can only do so online.
