1.                          November traffic statistics


Summary of the headline figures

In November 2006, passenger capacity, measured in Available Seat Kilometres, was
0.7 per cent above November 2005.  Traffic, measured in Revenue Passenger
Kilometres, was lower by 0.8 per cent.  This resulted in a passenger load factor
down 1.0 points versus last year, to 72.2 per cent.  The decrease in traffic
comprised a 3.7 per cent increase in premium traffic and a 1.6 per cent decrease
in non-premium traffic.  Cargo, measured in Cargo Tonne Kilometres, decreased by
8.2 per cent.   Overall load factor fell by 0.3 points to 69.8 per cent.

Market conditions

Underlying market conditions are broadly unchanged, bookings are continuing to
recover supported by common European carry on baggage standards and improved
performance at Heathrow.

Strategic Developments

The airline has reached agreement in principle to sell the regional operation of
its subsidiary airline BA Connect to Flybe.

The airline purchased American Airline's remaining stake in Iberia for
approximately 19 million euros (or GBP13 million) taking BA's total share
holding from some nine to ten per cent.  The transaction is intended to preserve
British Airways' two seats on the Iberia board.

BA unveiled its next generation business class cabin which offers greater
comfort, more space and storage.  It is part of an GBP100 million investment in
the airline's products and services that includes its First Class cabin and the
introduction of an on-demand in-flight entertainment system in every cabin
across the longhaul fleet. The new Club World flat bed is 25 per cent wider with
a unique 'z' bed position that extends to six foot six inches.

A ten year funding plan to tackle the GBP2.1billion deficit in the New Airways
Pension Scheme (NAPS) was agreed in principle between BA and the trustees.  It
includes an increase in the company's one off cash injection from GBP500 -
GBP800 million plus cash payments of GBP50 million for three years and an
increase in annual contributions to over GBP250 million.

Following consultation with its trades unions the company proposed to increase
its annual contributions to GBP272 million and offered staff the choice of a
normal retirement age of 60 with increased staff contributions or retirement at
65 with a reduced pension.

Willie Walsh, chief executive, called for faster progress on plans to increase
runway capacity at Heathrow airport.  He urged the Government to set out a
step-by-step timetable for the introduction of mixed mode operations and a short
third runway, with clear deadlines for the necessary preparatory work by airport
owner BAA and the Civil Aviation Authority.

British Airways announced a review of its uniform policy to examine ways in
which the policy can be adapted to allow symbols of faith to be worn openly
while remaining consistent with the British Airways brand and compliant with
employment legislation.

A mini 'World Offers' sale to 36 popular long-haul destinations with savings of
up to 53 per cent was announced.

New routes from London Gatwick to Port of Spain in Trinidad and Tobago, Dresden
in Germany and Sarajevo in Bosnia and Herzegovina will start from March 2007.
The airline signed a codeshare agreement with Caribbean Airlines on British
Airways' services to Port of Spain, Barbados and Antigua.
