In Economy we focus on offering you good quality food, done consistently well. We like to work with simple, seasonal ingredients presented elegantly. And of course, served with the warmth and flair we're famous for.

We'll hand you a bottle of water as you settle in to help you keep hydrated on your flight. We will also be along with a pre-dinner drinks service offering a good selection of beers, wines and spirits, as well as soft drinks.

Premium economy

There’s more space to relax, because your leather seat is one of the biggest in its class. It’s up to 21in (over 53cm) wide, with a footrest, headrest and 38in (over 96cm) seat pitch.

As a Premium Economy passenger, you can choose from our selection of three delicious main courses – and decide whether you'd prefer a red or white wine to complement your meal.

Upper Class

Stretch out and enjoy every minute of your flight in Upper Class. It’s a luxury experience with a business class price tag.

Whether you're with us for business or pleasure, Upper Class makes your journey something to really look forward to.

First off we take the stress out of travelling to and from the airport with our chauffeur driven car service at both ends of your journey.

If you're flying from London Heathrow T3, you can enjoy a streamlined serene start to your journey from our unique Upper Class Wing. After the personalised, dedicated check in, you'll beat the queues and whizz through our Private Security Channel. Which means there's more time to make the most of our award winning Clubhouse.

Whichever of our worldwide Clubhouses you're enjoying, when it's time to fly we'll let you know. Then you can just take your place onboard. With a generous leather seat that flips niftily into one of the longest flat beds in any business class, plus the space to relax, talk and enjoy delicious food and drink, we've got your next few hours covered.
