British Airways “Business Class Only” Flights Begin

September 30, 2009 | Posted in: Europe

It might not seem logical, given the economic slump we’re in, but British Airways is optimistic that its new, twice -daily service from London to New York – business class only – will make money by the first of the year.

And just to be clear, that’s London City Airport – which may be a plus for some passengers who want to avoid the busy behemoth that is Heathrow. However, this means a refueling stop is required in Ireland, but one can now clear customs for the U.S. in Ireland – and it could actually make for a shorter overall trip (the flight back to London is non-stop).

Cost of a roundtrip ticket on the all business class service is about $3,000. I will say, business class travel on British Airways is something special.

    It would be nice if they offered an introductory rate on OpenSkies for the London trip priced comparably to that of the current Paris trip. Beofre I give up my Delta miles I would like to know what I am getting………..
    I see BA/OpenSkies having the potential to be a great flight, but 3k in this economy is a little much for small business owners or those wanting a weekend getaway. There is definately a market for this flight, just getting the interest of potential customers is the trick to be successful!
