BA Charges Upgrade Fee

Jump to last reply

For those of you who are unaware, British Airways on transatlantic flights has started using these horrible new 3-3-3 configuration planes with tiny seat sizes. And I mean tiny. The "premium" seats consist of a pair in the very last row, which is the only double on the plane, and exit row seats, which are adjacent to the restrooms on this aircraft. They have the gaul to charge you an extra $75 to sit in these "premium" seats, which are ironically the worst seats on the plane.

When I discovered this, I decided to bite the bullet and upgrade to their "plus" seating section. I called them to upgrade, and they said it would almost double the cost of my ticket. OK, I was expecting something like that. But then they said that they would have to charge me change fee on top of that! A change fee to upgrade.

Moral of the story: avoid this aircraft. Better yet, avoid British Airways. Everytime you think that airlines have run out of ways to make travel miserable, they always seem to find more.
