    Travel around the world for fraction of cost. Amazing hotel discounts

    Staff travel compared to other airlines is not great. You have 2 nominees changeable every 6 months on your staff travel for a standby ticket in the first 5 years. This is only a standby listing and not a guaranteed seat. After 5 years you get a “free ticket” plus your standby tickets. A free ticket is not free. You still pay the tax to NYC and back is roughly £172 per person. However depending on seats available you will be confirmed so it is better than standby and rushing last minute. They are in the process of changing the pension which is having mixed feelings across the business however it is better for newer employees

    Fantastic benefit package, but flights are on standby. After 5 years working there, you get a perk of an annual business class ticket (taxes have to be paid still)

    There is nothing really outstanding about the benefits packages - discounts are similar to other companies and some discounts are not really discounts as you end up paying for them (in some form or another) via the exclusive clauses and related constraints of use

    The flight deals are good with longer service. Space available business class travel, just pay the tax. But, other airlines seem to have better fares or set up versus BA. The bonus is good, but is being set at a harder gateway each year. No scope individually to impact triggering the bonus.

    Best thing is the Annual Concession Flight - you get to travel (usually on Business Class) once a year on a trip of maximum three flights. You only pay 20% of the costs and the taxes (airport, fuel etc). After five years, you get to pay only the taxes which is almost nothing. You can receive additional Concession Flights if there is an annual bonus (they prefer to give flights to staff rather than cash).
