Experience ultimate comfort and luxury as you fly onboard British Airways Club World (Business Class).
I recently flew with British Airways from London to Mumbai as a Club World Passenger and enjoyed every bit of my experience with them.
From the quick, smooth check-in process to the spectacular lounges, fully reclining spacious seats to the fresh gourmet meals, engaging in-flight entertainment to impeccable, personalized service, the British Airways Club World offers a grand experience.
After a hectic trip around the United Kingdom, a smooth and comfortable journey back home made for the perfect end to my month-long solo trip.
Club World blends high-level comfort with flexibility and privacy, making for an unforgettable experience.
1. Check-In & Baggage:
British Airways Club World passengers have access to a seamless, quicker check-in process.
There are separate counters for checking in and a dedicated separate security + boarding process for Club World members at London Heathrow Terminal 5.
In under 20 minutes, my bags were checked in, boarding pass in hand and I was free to explore the magnificent Heathrow Terminal 5, one of the world’s busiest and best airports.
Being a British Airways Club World passenger, you have a generous baggage allowance of up to 32 kgs of checked-in baggage and a considerable hand baggage allowance, perfect to store all your holiday shopping.
2. British Airways Galleries Club Lounge:
As a British Airways Club World passenger, you have access to the British Airways Galleries Club Lounge that offers a rejuvenating and opulent experience complete with a full-fledged Elemis Spa, 24/7 fast WIFI, elegant velvet studded upholstery, fine wines, global liqueurs, delicious gourmet food, an exclusive work centre and a 20-seater cinema.
The British Airways Galleries Club Lounge makes for an incredible pre-flight experience.
After a delicious vegetarian meal at the lounge, I treated myself to a 15-minute complimentary facial at Elemis Spa. I spent some time relaxing in the Galleries lounge after a rejuvenating facial before it was time to board my flight to Mumbai.
3. Boarding and Seats:
Being a British Airways Club World passenger, I had the privilege of being one of the first few passengers to board the spectacular Boeing 787-9 aircraft.
After a priority boarding where I was graciously welcomed on board, I was politely directed to my fully reclining Club World seat, complete with an incredible leg space, high-quality bedding from The White Company, a modern in-flight entertainment system and an automated privacy window.
Offering the highest levels of comfort and flexibility, the Club World seats fully recline into a cosy flatbed, giving you a snug, good nights sleep.
The seat also has a fully adjustable lumbar support and headrest.
The well designed, high-quality bedding specially designed by The White Company as well as the handy amenities kit ads to the beauty of the experience.
The automated privacy window gives you the freedom to work, sleep in peace or interact with your fellow passengers at your convenience.
The Club world seat has an incredibly spacious leg space where you can easily stretch out comfortably.
4. Meals and Entertainment:
A. In-flight dining:
Pamper your taste buds with the delightful, handcrafted, three-course meals served in British Airways Club World.
The gourmet meals offer a wide range of local and international flavours suited to your dietary requirements, which you can pre-book up to 24 hours before boarding.
Th well balanced, high-quality meals are exquisitely presented in fine cutlery, served with impeccable flair.
Pair your food with one of the many fine wines, international liqueurs or some local British tea.
I thoroughly enjoyed devouring a scrumptious, warm Indian vegetarian breakfast before landing in Mumbai.
B : In-Flight Entertainment :
Every Club World seat comes with a 12-inch, modern flat screen and noise-cancelling headphones.
The inflight entertainment system is well equipped with a large variety of latest movies, shows, ebooks and games.
After a hearty meal and a nice movie, I laid down for a good nights sleep in the comfort of my Club World seat.
5. Landing in Mumbai:
After an incredibly luxurious and comfortable flight experience with British Airways Club World, I smoothly landed at CSIA Airport Mumbai, India.
I collected my bags and headed home with unforgettable memories.

I always travel business class by various airlines but never tried the British Airways one. Looks really good, especially the seats and the lounge access. I like how it’s a direct flight to London too. Gonna try it soon.
Yes it is really good. Do try it the next time you fly to London.
