Can I use business class check-in with a British Airways Bronze card?

As you are probably aware, access to business class check-in can sometimes save considerably time when at the airport, since you can skip the economy queue. In general, British Airways does well at its Terminal 5 facility at Heathrow, but for flights from other destinations having priority check-in can be a big boon.

The good news is that as Bronze member, you can use Club World, Club Europe or the equivalent oneworld business class check in regardless of what class you’re flying. This means that, even if you are flying economy, you will be able to jump the queues when checking in and dropping your bags off.

Remember that priority check in is not your only benefit as a Bronze member. You can see a full list of all the British Airways Executive Club Bronze benefits here, as well as an article about what it takes to become a British Airways Bronze cardholder.
