Our guide to a smoother jour­ney with Bri­tish Air­ways Sil­ver Club Card

Fly­ing any­where for more than 12 hours is al­ways a te­dious task for those fly­ing Econ­omy—from pack­ing just enough bag­gage to be al­lowed to check in, with that bit of room for ex­tra overseas pur­chases; get­ting to the air­port early to avoid queu­ing for way too long, to the ac­tual travel ex­pe­ri­ence on board. For a smoother travel ex­pe­ri­ence, get­ting on­board a fre­quent flyer mem­ber­ship club plays a cru­cial role. With Bri­tish Air­ways, it is safe to say that the treat­ment for Sil­ver ben­e­fits of the Ex­ec­u­tive Club are more than suf­fi­cient—and I speak from first-hand ex­pe­ri­ence.

The has­sle of check­ing in and board­ing has­sle are a thing of the past with pri­or­ity given to Sil­ver ex­ec­u­tives. From easy trans­ac­tions by check­ing in at the Busi­ness counter to com­pli­men­tary bag­gage on top of what you are al­ready given, along with di­rect ac­cess to en­joy the tranquil en­vi­ron­ment pro­vided at their busi­ness lounges; one can def­i­nitely count on hav­ing a stress-free jour­ney as a Bri­tish Air­ways Ex­ec­u­tive Club Sil­ver mem­ber.

Any over pack­ers (guilty!) can breathe a sigh of re­lief be­cause, with the Sil­ver ben­e­fits, you get to bring an ex­tra bag with you! I was to­tally ec­static about not hav­ing to dou­ble or even triple check my bags, and pon­der­ing on what to leave be­hind. When on­board a plane, I al­most al­ways pre­fer to get the win­dow seat. I get claus­tro­pho­bic in the mid­dle, and can’t stand hav­ing the tray ta­bles oc­ca­sion­ally bump against my el­bows while it is be­ing pushed down the aisle, so it was great to know that another great ben­e­fit of be­ing a Sil­ver mem­ber is the abil­ity to choose my own seat pref­er­ence the mo­ment I make my book­ing. No more ag­o­nis­ing over seat choices dur­ing flights—this en­sures a pleas­ant ex­pe­ri­ence, 35,000 feet in the air. Any­one guests trav­el­ling along are ex­tended the ex­act same priv­i­lege!

Lounge to your heart’s con­tent while in tran­sit and when wait­ing to board your flight in not just a Bri­tish Air­ways club lounge, but also the lounge of

sis­ter air­lines listed as part of the One World Al­liance group, in­clud­ing Malaysia Air­lines, Ibe­ria, Amer­i­can Air­lines, and Ja­pan Air­lines. The priv­i­lege doesn’t end there—part­ner priv­i­leges in­clude room up­grades at Man­darin Ori­en­tal, so you can en­joy ex­tra priv­i­leges when you land too! With all of these con­ces­sions and al­lowances, who wouldn’t want to be a Sil­ver card sta­tus holder at Bri­tish Air­ways?
