1.                          February traffic statistics


Summary of the headline figures

In February 2007, passenger capacity, measured in Available Seat Kilometres, was
0.9 per cent above February 2006.  Traffic, measured in Revenue Passenger
Kilometres, was lower by 4.2 per cent.  This resulted in a passenger load factor
down 3.7 points versus last year, to 67.5 per cent.  The decrease in traffic
comprised a 6.3 per cent decrease in premium traffic and a 3.8 per cent decrease
in non-premium traffic. Cargo, measured in Cargo Tonne Kilometres, decreased by
10.9 per cent.  Overall load factor fell by 2.6 points to 64.7 per cent.

Strike dates were announced in January covering six days in the first two weeks
of February.  During these days we closed our systems to new bookings.  As
premium travel is predominantly booked two to three weeks pre-departure, premium
bookings during this period were significantly impacted.

Market conditions

Market conditions are broadly unchanged.

Strategic Developments

British Airways took the first step towards expanding its longhaul fleet by
ordering four Boeing 777-200 ER aircraft for delivery during early 2009, with
options on four Boeing 777-200 ER aircraft for delivery in 2010.

British Airways and the trustees of the New Airways Pension Scheme (NAPS)
formally agreed a ten year funding plan to tackle the GBP2.1 billion deficit in
the scheme. The plan, which was agreed in principle with the trustees last year,
includes annual company contributions of some GBP280 million, a one-off cash
injection of  GBP800 million and benefit changes to take effect from April 1. It
also includes an additional GBP150 million in cash over the next three years,
subject to the airline's financial performance.  The benefit changes deliver an
immediate deficit reduction of some GBP400 million and a saving of some GBP80
million a year.

The airline launched Easter breaks with up to 45 per cent off British Airways
business class (Club World) fares to 28 holiday destinations if booked before
March 8, 2007. These included return fares from London to New York starting from
GBP1349 (saving up to GBP983), GBP1349 to Baltimore, Boston, Philadelphia and
Washington (saving up to GBP1083 each) and GBP1749 to Seattle (saving up to
GBP1412). Los Angeles and San Francisco are available from GBP1649 (saving up
to GBP1337 each).

Certain information included in these statements is forward-looking and involves
risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially
from those expressed or implied by the forward looking statements.

Forward-looking statements include, without limitation, projections relating to
results of operations and financial conditions and the Company's plans and
objectives for future operations, including, without limitation, discussions of
the Company's Business Plan programs, expected future revenues, financing plans
and expected expenditures and divestments. All forward-looking statements in
this report are based upon information known to the Company on the date of this
report. The Company undertakes no obligation to publicly update or revise any
forward-looking statement, whether as a result of new information, future events
or otherwise.

It is not reasonably possible to itemize all of the many factors and specific
events that could cause the Company's forward looking statements to be incorrect
or that could otherwise have a material adverse effect on the future operations
or results of an airline operating in the global economy. Information on some
factors which could result in material difference to the results is available in
the Company's SEC filings, including, without limitation the Company's Report on
Form 20-F for the year ended March 2006.

The estimated impact of the averted strike in Quarter 4 reflects the direct
costs of the measures and the estimated revenue impacts, both direct and
indirect. The estimate of GBP80 million is based on assumptions the company
considers reasonable, but are judgemental.
