British Airways’ fare structure gives you a choice of three economy fares when you fly within Europe: Basic, Plus and Plus Flex. This gives you greater flexibility and allows you to pay for only the benefits and services you need.
Basic fares are ideal when you want the lowest possible fare. You’ll still have an allocated seat when you check in and it includes our generous hand baggage allowance. With Basic fares, you have the option of paying to add a checked bag, choose your seat, or other extras via Manage My Booking.
Plus fares offer a suite of benefits to make your journey simpler and easier. You can take more with you, choose where you sit and make free flight changes on the day of departure.
Plus fares include a generous checked baggage allowance on top of your hand baggage allowance. You can choose your seat up to 48 hours before you fly, and if your plans change last minute (a meeting ends early, or you want to stay longer) you can change your flight for free on the day of travel, up to one hour before your scheduled departure time. Changes at any other time can be made for a fee + the fare difference. Just make the change via ba.com, the BA mobile app or via your travel agent. Conditions apply.
Plus Flex fares are ideal if your personal schedule is likely to change. They bring you the greatest flexibility and you can even cancel your flight for a full refund if you need to. In addition, you can choose exactly where you sit when you book and even switch for free to a more convenient flight up to one hour before your scheduled departure time. Conditions apply.
