Thanks for finding my video and pressing play!
British Airways have one of the most accessible, but least aspirational First Class products on the market. My return fare (Stockholm-London-Houston and return) cost a shade under £1000, in business class - I upgraded into First using Avios.
This will be the last in a series of videos featuring BA First Class. That said, my flight was very pleasant, despite the obvious corner-cutting now endemic at British Airways. I’ve just spent the last of my Avios on a Cathay Pacific First Class ultra long haul between Hong Kong and JFK, and that will mark the end of my relationship with BA and Avios.
Going forward there will be a lot more focus on non-aligned and unusual airlines.
In this video though, enjoy the simple pleasure of travelling smoothly and calmly across the Atlantic, with three course meals and a flat bed.
Enjoy the report.
Do you have any ideas for future trip reports? Something you've never seen on AR-too before? Why not suggest it to me in the comments? I read every single one! 👍🏻
Enjoy the video, and thanks for watching. If you subscribe, then thanks for being part of the channel!

  • 10/10 to BA for serving a pork sausage rather than one of those chickenshit things loved by many airlines but it looked under-cooked. In fact for First class, that English breakfast (a misnomer if there ever was one) looked disappointing as I could get much better in my local greasy spoon.

  • I flew first class on BA once from Johannesburg to London. It was part of a trip from Canada to South Africa. The other three legs were in business class with BA. Unfortunately the first class leg was a big disappointment. The purser told me that my special meal was inedible. Then she said that "she did not know what to do about it". From her age, she must have been a flight attendant for decades, and, should have known exactly how to rectify this. I asked to select a meal from business class. She did not think that that would be possible. I forced a smile, and, said, "Unless you plan on landing this bird in Nairobi, and, going to Pizza Hut, then I am selecting from the business class menu, or, speaking to the captain.". I ate from the business class menu. Later in the flight, she sheepishly approached me and said, "Mr. Elie, I notice from your itinerary that you are ONLY in business class on the next leg of your journey; therefore, I advise you to purchase your on-board duty-free now, because first class duty-free items are not made available to passengers in 'lower classes of passage'.".

    • Did you see the state of the two women before he got out of bed on the first one looked like she had just got out of bed the matts he filmed at the beginning were absolutely filthy I have seen the other company's staff and they are much better presented and make eye contact with you they don't just wave your ticket in the air and turn away the sad thing was they knew that they were being filmed.

  • Hi mate I once flew with British Airways First Class, during the flight I had a very small disagreement with a flight attendant about taking home with me the noise cancelling headphones and some of the crockery (salt and pepper shakers). After my three week trip I got back home and my dog who had been left at home was dead. At first I thought nothing of it but now I’ve connected the dots and think this was a message from BA. I’ve written in to complain about my dog and noting my suspicions but they claim to know nothing about it. In hindsight I could have left the dog some food and water but I’m pretty confident this was nothing to do with what happened. I shan’t be flying BA again, even Emirates didn’t murder my pets despite a similar disagreement about taking home the vintage cognac. Any thoughts?

  • Having watched a number of your videos, I would like to suggest that you invest in a blazer. For one thing, when you are reviewing first and business class travel, it would express considerably more respect for the people around you than the tee shirts in which you often appear. That is a two-way street. Being one to wear a blazer when I travel, I am treated better than I would be dressed otherwise, by flight staff and fellow passengers alike. It conveys a certain graciousness. Particularly in the higher classes of travel, it demonstrates a sense of occasion, even in the hyper-casual world of today. If I were to see you dressed as you often appear in your videos, I would think that you did not know where your are. Your attire borders on the rude. This is not even to mention that a blazer or suit jacket is the most practical piece of travel attire possible, with four or more pockets for phone, passport, wallet, and so on, none of which need to be dug out of a backpack, and none of which dig into part of one's body if stuck into pants pockets. Give it some thought!
