BA compares fares

BRITISH AIRWAYS has launched its fares comparison guide which really does show up some of the additional costs that competing airlines charge.  BA claims passengers pay no extra for a variety of items that can be very expensive with the so-called low price carriers.  Richard Tams, Head of UK & Ireland Sales at British Airways, said: "With BA, the price you see is the price you pay.”  You can book your seat 24 hours ahead.  And then move it if needs be.  Credit cards are not charged for, or airport check-in or bags up to 23kg and carry-on items are up to the full size approved by the Department for Transport.  Food and snacks are with the compliments of the airline, although what is on offer does depend on the time of day and length of flight.  Unfortunately the BA web site is laid out in such a way that you need to be an internet detective to find that the guide it is part of “flights and holidays” on www.ba.com
