British Airways: British Airways was founded in 1974 by the British Government as a consolidation of four UK airliners. This UK airline operated as a state company for almost 13 years before becoming privatized in 1987, before expanding further by acquiring a number of smaller regional British airlines including British Caledonian which at the time was considered the second airline of the UK. It is a founding member of the Oneworld airline alliance, which includes other large airlines Cathay Pacific, Qantas and American Airlines. With its impressive fleet and recognized standards of service, British Airways remains one of the most popular airlines both in the UK and worldwide. British Airways is the largest British airline, coming second only to easyJet in terms of the number of passengers carried annually. British Airway's base is at London Heathrow Terminal 5 and it travels not only domestically, but throughout Europe and across the globe.
British Airways not only flies within Europe and the UK but it also has many long haul flights across the world. For these flights, British Airways class fares or ticket types vary from the options available for short-haul flights.
As British Airways main hub is at Heathrow, all routes are from London to neighboring cities. However, you can also get flights to London from outside of Europe including New York, LA and Boston.
If you have a basic fare then you will need to pay for checked baggage. If you have a plus, plus flex, club Europe or Club world then you have a checked bag included in the original ticket price.
