Summary of the headline figures

In March 2007, passenger capacity, measured in Available Seat Kilometres, was
2.3 per cent above March 2006.  Traffic, measured in Revenue Passenger
Kilometres, was higher by 3.3 per cent.  This resulted in a passenger load

increase in non-premium traffic. Cargo, measured in Cargo Tonne Kilometres,

Market conditions

Underlying market conditions are broadly unchanged.

Strategic Developments

In the light of Iberia's announcement that it had received a bid approach,
British Airways appointed UBS to advise on how to use British Airways' 10 per
cent holding in Iberia in the best interests of British Airways shareholders.
The advice will examine all options, including a disposal of British Airways'

British Airways called on the UK Government to stand by its right of automatic
termination of traffic rights granted in the new aviation pact between the EU
and US if America stalls on negotiating further liberalisation.

The airline expanded its operations at London City Airport by more than 70 per
cent with the launch of its new subsidiary, BA CityFlyer which operates 250
flights a week to six UK and European destinations.  New direct routes include
Glasgow and Zurich.

British Airways completed the sale of the regional operation of its subsidiary
airline BA Connect to Flybe.

British Airways entered into exclusive talks to transfer its ground handling
operation at Aberdeen, Edinburgh, Glasgow and Manchester airports to Aviance UK,
an independent ground handling company.

The summer schedule includes four new routes from London Gatwick this summer
including Port of Spain in Trinidad and Tobago, Dresden in Germany, Sarajevo in
Bosnia and Herzegovina and Newquay.

The company announced three year contracts with global distribution systems
Galileo, Sabre Travel Network and Worldspan.

At its annual Investor Day British Airways released market guidance for the
financial year 2007/8. Revenue is forecast to increase by 5-6 per cent based on
capacity measured in available seat kilometers (ASKs) up 1.3 per cent, traffic
measured in revenue passenger kilometers (RPKs) up 2.4 per cent and yield
measured in pence per RPK up 3.4 per cent.  Fuel is forecast to be up by some
GBP100 million for 2007/8.  Total costs, excluding fuel are forecast to be up
GBP50 million.  This will leave the company on track to achieve a 10 per cent
operating margin in the year to March 2008.
