After my rough trip to Europe in Lufthansa economy class on the way out, I’m trying something new on the way back: World Traveller Plus on British Airways.
Compared to a middle seat in the middle section in the last row on Lufthansa, this should be a nice upgrade.
With the (now finished) transfer bonus from American Express, the flight only cost about 23,000 American Express Membership Rewards points (32,500 Avios). I will be connecting from another city, so the taxes/fees are under $250.
I’m to the point where I am more interested in trying new products than revisiting luxury. I could have flown home in Lufthansa First Class…the space was there. But I’ve reviewed it so many times and so I figure 1.) this review will be more helpful to more people and 2.) it should be tolerable for the daytime journey from London to Los Angeles.
British Airways recently updated its World Traveller Plus (premium economy) soft product, to include upgraded meals, better blankets, and new amenity kits.
I’m interested in seeing how World Traveller Plus will compare to Lufthansa’s Premium Economy, Norwegian Premium, and United’s Premium Plus; the only other three premium economy products I have reviewed on a longhaul flight. Over time, I hope to add Air France, SAS, and others to that list of reviews.
I always get excited at the opportunity to try a new product. Let me know if you have any tips for maximizing my experience in BA’s World Traveller Plus.
