Nashville is gaining First Class.
Back in October we reported that British Airways was moving the Nashville service, launched in May 2018, to daily operation from the Summer 2019 timetable. There are presently five flights per week, increasing to seven from 19th April.
The service has now been switched to a Boeing 787-9 from a Boeing 787-8. This means that Nashville is getting First Class from 31st March.
If you have Avios seats booked for Nashville after 31st March, you might want to consider upgrading one or both legs to First Class if seats are showing.
As well as additional Avios, you will need to pay the £35 per person change fee and any extra taxes. The taxes difference could be noticeable given that BA hiked its surcharges late last year.
