BA’s Club World taxes, fees and recently increased carrier charges will apply.

Carolina Martinoli, British Airways’ Director of Brand and Customer Experience, said about this promotion:

“It’s exciting to be able to make more than 50,000 extra reward seats available, giving more members a chance to travel paying just taxes, fees and carrier charges, or upgrade their cabin. With these seats spanning a vast array of long-haul routes across a number of continents, we’re hoping it will give members plenty of options for their next getaway.”

    Just for reference there is a lot of Club and First availability to Mumbai for next May if anyone was looking for that (we have to attend a wedding out there so it’s worked out very well)
