The British Airways experience More than a flight

The British Airways Experience is more than a flight. For us, it’s about making every single journey special. For you, it’s about feeling fantastic from airport to boarding and beyond.

Welcome aboard

Relax and revitalise, wine and dine, or simply indulge – enjoyment comes as standard on board, from nose to tail fin.

Explore our cabins

Luxe lounges

Step away from the hubbub of the airport and into a spectacular sanctuary; indulgent spa treatments, stellar service and gastronomy.

What kind of lounge traveller are you?

Lounges with modern artwork, tea and cake and bespoke spa treatments, there’s never been a better time to treat yourself to that extra-special travel experience.

For… art aficionados

With over 1,500 pieces, British Airways’ art collection rivals the great galleries, including works by prominent British artists such as Damien Hirst and Tracey Emin. In Rome check out prints from English artist Patrick Caulfield’s bold Some Poems of Jules Laforgue series.

For… foodies

The bespoke menus at our lounges are packed with locally inspired dishes and drinks. But there are still nods to British heritage – yes, that means tea and cake. Flying early morning from Aberdeen? Try Rowies – a Scottish croissant-style roll known for its flaky texture and buttery taste.

For… pampering

From in-flight skin saviours to jet lag-busting treatments, we’ve partnered with luxury British skincare brand Elemis to help you relax before, during and after your flight. Travelling in First or Club World? Let us treat you to a complimentary 15-minute back rub or deep scalp massage at the in-lounge travel spas.

How to get the best night’s sleep on board

Start your journey right on your flight and you can minimise any travel-induced insomnia that follows. Here’s how to master the art of sleeping at 35,000ft.

Bed down in style

‘In Club World the pillowcase is made from 200-thread-count pure cotton so it feels really comfortable. We chose a super-soft hollow fibre filling to make it feel as close as possible to a luxury down.’ says Chrissie Rucker, founder of the luxury British brand.

Get in the (time) zone

‘The sooner you get on to local time, the better. Have a light, healthy snack when you arrive as low blood sugar can wake you in the night.’ says Sarah Wilson, nutritional therapist for British Airways.

Clear the clutter

‘Try adding a relaxation exercise to your bedtime routine. It doesn’t have to be long – even two to four minutes of seated relaxation techniques can help quiet your mind.’ says Dr Rebecca Robbins, sleep expert at The Benjamin New York. Continue unwinding in the air by tuning into High Life Entertainment’s Headspace channel.
