This upgrade offer is currently only available to companies who are registered On Business members and eligible for Business Bespoke fares – please do check with us if you are unsure.

It is also worth noting that this upgrade offer has been launched in advance of the main promotion to the general public; so get in early whilst the seat availability is good!

The upgrade offer is available from today (Tuesday 29th April 2014) and bookings can be made in the discounted classes (R, D & C) until 2359 on 23rd May 2014. All travel must be completed by 7th September 2014.

Please note that bookings cannot be made via BA.com and some routes/aircraft do not have a First Class cabin and, so, are ineligible.

Happy travels.
