British Airways and Iberia launched a new booking option
With this new option online, available at time of booking, customers will have plenty of time to take care of the details of their trip before you buy your ticket. If within 72 hours you decide to buy your ticket, the amount deposited to secure the booking will be refunded in full and the ticket can be purchased.
The ability to lock on booking shorthaul flights will cost 5 Euro per passenger, and 10 euros for long-haul flights.
"It is extremely frustrating trying to find an affordable flight, without the ability to buy it at that time, why you'd want to think a little’ or because you have to deal with friends and family, and discover, When you return to purchase it, There are no more seats available, or that the price has changed ", Drew said Crawley, British Airways Sales Manager.
"Now our customers can find the best offers and, for a small sum, block their posts up to three days. The feedback from our customers makes us confident of the success of this new service, that allows them to have time to book the flight when they want and makes sure to buy at the best price found.”
