Once again British Airways staff have decided to strike, but this time to try and reduce the disruption BA have agreed to ‘wet lease’ 9 of Qatars A320/321 aircraft. These planes would have been otherwise grounded due to the issues they have locally in the Middle East.
As of today these planes are in the air operating BA routes around Europe and will definitely offer a much improved seat in Club Europe and service by Qatar cabin crew should also be an upgrade.
We are currently trying to confirm what routes these are being operated on as the Avios program offers very good value redemptions in Club Europe so it could be a very good time to go for a last minute redemption to try out this product. The problem BA will have is that their customers might enjoy this a little too much and won’t want to go back.
Update to follow soon.
