British Airways reduces business class checked luggage allowance

British Airways is making changes to its checked luggage allowance for business class passengers. Customers in Club World and Biz Bed (business class on the carrier’s Openskies transatlantic service) can currently check in three pieces of luggage, each weighing up to 32kg. But for any flights booked after May 10 this will be reduced to two pieces. The existing allowance will be honoured for any bookings made before May 10, regardless of the date of travel. Gold cardholders in BA’s Executive Club scheme are entitled to an additional free bag, effectively meaning they will be able to check in three bags instead of the previous four on Club World and Biz Bed flights. Under the changes business class passengers will also be able to check in a third bag where required, at a cost of £120 ($180 or €140) if pre-booked online, or £140 ($200 or €150) when purchased at the airport. Full details of the changes can be found on BA’s website here. Mark Caswell
