For flights purchased from May 10, 2016, the free checked baggage allowance for Club World customers will change from three to two pieces, with each weighing a maximum of 32kgBA will honour the existing allowance for any customers who booked before this date.

The majority of BA’s Club World customers no longer use the offer of a third bag and our new policy will bring the allowance in line with Atlantic Joint Business airlines, including American Airlines and Finnair.

Gold Executive Club members will still be entitled to an additional free bag, and Club World customers will be able to check in a third bag for £120 online and £140 at the airport (with the exception of flights from Brazil, which will be US$120 for each piece of luggage).
