Enjoy Economy

Three ways to fly, and the best crew in the sky

Economy doesn't have to be one-size-fits-all. In fact, we positively encourage you to be choosy, with three different ways to fly. Pack light and pay less in Light, take a checked bag with more flex in Classic, or treat yourself to Premium check in, priority boarding, and a lovely extra legroom seat in Delight.  ​

Whichever you go for, there'll be a warm welcome waiting when you get onboard, along with deliciously different dining (that you can order up in advance) complimentary drinks and snacks, your pick of world-class entertainment, kid's packs for the little ones, plus all the little touches that make your flight that bit more special. It's all included. Now you're flying.

Choose Economy Classic for the great value service you know and love, including 50lbs (23kg) luggage allowance, plus hand luggage and free seat selection. If you'd rather speed through the airport using Premium check in desks and priority boarding (to get first dibs on overhead storage), Economy Delight offers all this, plus extra legroom on board. Of if you're happy to pack less, choose Economy Light - You'll still get everything you'd expect on a great flight, but at a price you wouldn’t.

 

 

All our Economy services include delicious food, entertainment and irresistible personal service.

Be choosy

Prefer an aisle seat? The best way to guarantee your favourite spot on the plane is to select your seats in advance. You can do this when you book, or at any time in manage my booking.

Dining in Economy

Fabulous food and drink is always included in Economy. Quality, tasty hot meals served with a starter, your choice of wine, spirits, beer or soft drinks – and pudding, of course. 

And if you’re flying with the little ones, we’ve got them covered too.

Economy Light doesn't include checked bags or advance seat assignment, so if you need them, go for Economy Classic or Delight. If you change your mind after you've booked, you can pay to choose your seat in advance from £30 each way in My booking, or take a checked in bag from £45 each way. More on extra luggage here.

*Passengers flying to or from Delhi, Mumbai, Lagos and Johannesburg have a different luggage allowance.
