Travel News Asia Videos Podcasts Latest Travel News Asia Thursday, 16 October 2014

British Airways is treating its Club World business class passengers in Hong Kong to a complimentary one-way upgrade to its First class cabin on one sector of their long-haul flight to London, the UK and Europe.

The limited offer is available for booking until 4 November 2014 and is valid for travel from 20 October 2014 to 31 March 2015.

Club World return fares start from HK$43,890.

We wanted to reward our loyal premium customers with the opportunity to experience the unprecedented level of comfort and service our First class cabin has to offer, at the price of business class fares, said Tracy Dedman, British Airways regional general manager, Greater China and the Philippines. The long travel window allows our customers to enjoy the wonderful autumn period in the UK or enjoy the magic of wintertime in the UK.

Each individual suite in the First cabin features a 6ft 6", a personal wardrobe and a 15" inflight entertainment screen. Taking inspiration from the private jet industry, each First customer has their own personal electronic window blind, to enhance their ownership of the space and control the amount of light flooding into their suite. A Turndown Service is offered by cabin crew who will lay out a 200-thread count Egyptian cotton mattress accompanied by a 400-thread count duvet and pillow.

Customers can also freshen up at any time with the range of premium skincare products in the new First amenity kit developed by Aromatherapy Associates and The Refinery.

British Airways is the only airline to fly the Airbus A380 non-stop between Hong Kong and London, with all flights landing at British Airways home at London Heathrow, Terminal 5.

All premium customers can enjoy the facilities at the Arrivals lounge, which includes showers, breakfast and complimentary Elemis spa treatments. Customers can also enjoy bubbling champagne at the exclusive Galleries Club lounges on their departure.
