British Airways: Business vs. Premium Economy... thoughts?

Jump to last reply

yes, of course, Business (ie. Club World)!

But, at what cost?

We are flying from PHL - LHR next spring. Using miles (transferred from other sources - happy to use them) to go, but we have to pay taxes and fuel surcharges. Right now, there is a bonus if you using Avios - flights are 25% less (points, not $).

We had planned on booking PE (ie. World Traveller Plus), but with the incentive, are considering booking Business. Will spend about 100K more in miles (somewhat immaterial, since I believe miles are getting harder and harder to use), and about $1,350 more in cost (we are a family of 5, so things add up quickly).

Is that a slam dunk? It IS a relatively short flight, but we try to "go" on day 1, so more sleep would be a good thing... Also, on the way back, we are connecting through Heathrow, so we would use the lounge when we connect. Also, has anyone used the lounges at T5? It would be nice, upon arrival, to go and shower and clean up - or at least the thought of that sounds appealing.

thoughts? I know... go for it. But you aren't paying. But you only live once. Right?
