Peace of mind with Reservation Assurance

We know there are times when it's absolutely vital you make a flight. Reservation Assurance will provide you with an economy seat on your chosen British Airways flight, even if the flight is full, for some extra reassurance at those important times. To benefit you just need to:

  • book a full fare economy ticket more than 24 hours before the flight (Y class only)
  • check in at least one hour before departure

Unfortunately, we may sometimes be unable to offer this service, due to circumstances outside of our control. We are not able to extend this service to your travelling companions, nor can we ensure you are allocated a particular seat.
