Summary of the headline figures

In November 2005, passenger capacity, measured in Available Seat Kilometres, was
3.6 per cent above November 2004.  Traffic, measured in Revenue Passenger
Kilometres, was higher by 6.3 per cent.  This resulted in a passenger load
factor up 1.9 points versus last year, to 73.2 per cent.  The increase in
traffic comprised a 12.0 per cent increase in premium traffic and a 5.2 per cent
increase in non-premium traffic.  Cargo, measured in Cargo Tonne Kilometres,
fell by 1.9 per cent.  Overall load factor fell by 0.5 points at 70.1 per cent.

Market conditions

is required to deliver seat factors.

Strategic Developments

British Airways  announced plans to re-structure its business with a 35 per cent
reduction  in the  number  of its  1,715  managers  by March  2008.  The  figure
comprises a 50 per cent  reduction in senior  managers from 414 to 207, and a 30
percent  reduction in middle  managers from 1,301 jobs to 911 jobs.  This brings
the total number of job cuts to 597. The proposed management job cuts are set to
save the airline GBP50 million as part of its drive to achieve a GBP300  million
cost reduction programme by March 2007, announced in January 2004.

The company announced a pre-tax profit of GBP241 million (2004:  GBP293 million)
for the three months ended  September 30, 2005. The three month pre-tax  figures
took the result for the  half-year to GBP365  million  (2004:  GBP368  million).
Operating profit for the quarter was GBP261 million (2004: GBP245 million).

The  airline  said it will  invest  GBP100  million in a major  overhaul  of its
longhaul  business class. The enhanced changes will be introduced from mid 2006.
The  multi-million  pound  investment will build on the success of the airline's
existing  Club  World  flat  bed and  will set new  standards  for the  business

British Airways and The Tussauds Group signed a memorandum of understanding
agreeing the sale of the airline's entire interests in the British Airways
London Eye including its one-third share and its outstanding loan to the company
for GBP95 million. The airline plans to continue its brand association with the
attraction by extending its franchise agreement.
