28 Aug Airline Review + Discount Code – With British Airways in the Business Class to New York
because you guys love Airline Reviews so much I wanna introduce my flight with British Airways to NYC and back to Munich to you today.
I was able to test the Business Class of British Airways (called Club World) which I was super excited about beforehand. I was especially looking forward to the good food and great sleeping possibilities 🙂
And I’m super happy that I was able to organize a Discount Code for you guys (no, I don’t earn comission of it 😉 ): The promotion code is BAMADELEINE. With this code you receive 50€ discount at British Airways when you book a flight from Germany to the US in World Traveller, the Economy class of British Airways on long distance flights and/ or in Club World, the Business class of British Airways on long distance flights. In Germany British Airways approaches seven airports: Berlin-Tegel, Dusseldorf, Frankfurt, Hamburg, Hannover, Munich and Stuttgart. Hence, British Airways is very well established in Germany 🙂
Both flights were with the Jumbo Jet Boeing 747 which is one of my favorite aircrafts 🙂
One of the many advantages of traveling in Business Class is that you get lounge access. I really took advantage of that at John F Kennedy Airport in NYC as well as in London and spent some time at the British Airways Airport Lounge. Both are super cozy and offer free wifi, food, drinks, great possibilities to work etc.
At the Elimis-Spa at London Heathrow Airport I even received a 20 minute massage in order to relax after my long distance flight from NYC. I’ve never visited a Travel Spa before but it is really such a great idea as you arrive super relaxed and will be ready to get some work done at home 🙂
Both British Airways flights were really pleasant and I recognized many Extras on both of my flights such as:
- Amenity Kit consisting of socks, toothbrush, toothpaste, earplugs and even luxury cosmetics such as lipbalm etc.
- Handlotion in the restrooms
- Waterbottle at every seat
- Power outlet and USB port at every seat
- Free newspapers
- Easy to use remote control
- Comfy pillow and big blanket with lavender scent (so you can sleep better)
- Nice headphones
… and much much more 🙂
What was a bit surprising to me in the beginning but in the end even proved as very useful was that the seats in Club World of British Airways are ordered in different directions. If you travel as a couple I would select two seats in the middle of the airplane. If you travel as a single I can recommend you reserving a window or isle seat because you have a bit more privacy there. But how nice is it that at British Airways couples as well as singles have the perfect option 🙂
Of course I’ve also shot an Onboard Food Diary for you guys again:
Outbound Flight (Munich to London) – Meal 1: Snack
Already on my flight from Munich to London we received a super delicious cheese and ham platter. This was just perfect to me!
Outbound Flight (London to NYC) – Meal 1: Lunch
For dinner we were served even three courses which is one of the many advantages flying in Business Class. The entire food on all of my British Airways flights were exellent! Honestly, I’ve never even had such an amazing airplane food 😀 Even though I didn’t even order a Special Meal beforehand which is also possible at British Airways. You can choose among various categories such as vegetarian, gluten-free etc.
As a Starter we had the choice between various meals. I decided to go for the grilled veggies with salad. As a Main Course I ordered a big salad with grilled chicken. Both tasted really amazing and was exactly what I like 🙂
As Dessert you could choose among various dishes again. I’ve decided to try out the cheese platter and the fresh fruit. Really great that lovers of sweet as well as savoury things had a dessert option 🙂
Outbound Flight (London to NYC) – Meal 2: Afternoon Tea
Shortly before approaching New York guests in Club World were served an Afternoon Tea. Again there were totally yummy things offered including macarons 😀
Return Flight (NYC to London) – Meal 1: Dinner
Unfortunately on my return flight I missed dinner because I was so tired that I slept through until breakfast 😛
Return Flight (NYC to London) – Meal 2: Breakfast
Shortly before departure all Business Class guests fill out a card with your wishes for breakfast. You could also mark that you don’t wanna be waken up. I decided to go for breakfast. Hence, approx. 1 1/2 hours before arrival in London I was woken up very smoothly . This was a good idea because I didn’t want to land without having had breakfast before. Although I had some more food in the lounge in London later 😉
Return Flight (London to Munich) – Meal 1: Lunch
On my return flight to Munich we received a light lunch. As I don’t eat bread unfortunately I had to skip this meal but it also looked great 🙂
The Entertainment Program at British Airways in Business Class is also amazing! There is a huge selection of International movies, series, games etc. available. I’ve decided to watch “Modern Family” which I watched while enjoying the food on board.
What I also recognized immediately was the great Service of the British Airways employees. Everyone was super friendly and skilled. I always find service super super important when I travel and the service of the British Airways employees was excellent!
5 is the highest rating, 1 the lowest
Overall-Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ = 5 Stars
Hence, I can fully recommend the Business Class at British Airways. Of course not everyone can afford flying Business Class so I might test the Economy or Premium Economy Class from British Airways for you guys next time. For those who still have some travel budget left I can really recommend spending the extra amount for a Business Class flight though because you really look forward to your vacation this way and will arrive super relaxed at your vacation (and later back home) 🙂 With the Discount Code BAMADELEINE you receive on flights with British Airways from Germany to the US even 50€ Discount 😉
