World Traveller is our economy class on flights beyond Europe, packed with all the comfort and benefits you expect from British Airways at an affordable price:
Your seat is ergonomically designed and comes with an adjustable headrest, lumbar support and recline.
Your World Traveller experience also includes a few extra features to help make the journey as enjoyable as possible, including a comfy cushion and blanket — plus flight socks, an eye mask, toothbrush and toothpaste on request.
We offer a choice of two economy fares when you fly in World Traveller: Basic and Standard.
The World Traveller experience is getting a makeover. We're giving the cabin a stylish new interior, luxurious seats with greater recline, 35 per cent larger flat entertainment screen, in-seat power supply and more.
The new cabin is available now on our newest aircraft; A380, Boeing 787, Boeing 777-300ER and we're busy refurbishing many Boeing 777-200 and 767 aircraft to the same standard.
