British Airways emailed an account update yesterday that had interesting update about HBO (Hand Baggage Only) fares that had allowed elite members to choose their seats without charge.
This all is changing for bookings made from March 26, 2015. British Airways will allocate seats when the check in opens unless the passengers wishes to pay for the privilege of selecting a seat.
There is no link on BA.com for this announcement, but you can access their general web page for seating here.
Here’s copy of the email that BA sent:
Just how low can British Airways really go? It is getting ridiculous if they are not willing to provide complimentary advance seat selection for their elite members and Oneworld ones.
