Baggage not included in Premium Economy booking?

    Hello all!

    I have a reward booking coming up (2-4-1 amex voucher), we’re flying to Las Vegas in business class on the way out which I booked online, all is fine this side. I called up to book the return coming back from San Jose CA in premium economy.

    When I go to the manage my booking area on the website it says we don’t have any check in bags included for the premium economy flight back, I thought premium included checked bags? It gives us the option to add them at £50 each, is this correct?

    We also have no option to choose seats before check in, not even to pay, is this normal? The business flight out allows us to pay to choose the seats or get them free 24 hours before the flight. Blue member only at the moment!

    Thanks so much!

    All premium economy on BA includes bags and in fact all Avios economy bookings do too.

    Often happens if the flight hasn’t been ticketed yet, if it’s a while a way then give it a week and if you don’t have 125- ticket number then give BA a nudge.

    You get bags, even with partners. Aer Lingus throws in a bag on Avios redemptions, for example, which doesn’t happen with standard cash tickets.
