The Guest List is an enhanced travel experience which offers elements of our fantastic ground-based Upper Class service, and is available to book for flights departing before 1 May 2016.
The Guest List package is available when travelling to/from:
London Gatwick, London Heathrow, Boston, New York (both Newark and JFK), San Francisco and Washington.
All you need to qualify is to have booked your flights at least 21 days before departure and be flying before 1 May 2016.
To book the Guest List just call us on 0344 874 7747 (UK) or 1 800 862 8621 (US), up to 48 hours before your flight.
Chauffeur driven car
With a chauffeur driven car, you can travel stress free and look forward to a stylish entrance on arrival. Choose from one way (home to the airport) or two way (home to the airport on departure and from the airport to home on your return), and you can also choose three and four way, if both ends of your journey offer the Guest List package. Whatever you decide, our chauffeur is at your service.
Door to door service
If you liked being chauffeured from your front door, you'll love stepping out into our Upper Class Wing at London Heathrow. It's an oasis of calm that lets you effortlessly check in and head directly to our Private Security Channel.
Baggage taken care of
When you're checked in, even your baggage gets the Guest List treatment as it's tagged as Upper Class.
Fast track security
When flying from London Heathrow, you'll zoom through our fast track Private Security Channel. Travel out of London Gatwick, Boston, San Francisco or Washington and you'll be fast tracked through immigration & security. Either way, that's more time to indulge at our Heathrow or Gatwick Clubhouses.
With your name on the Clubhouse guest list you'll enjoy the ultimate preflight experience. Bite into some gourmet food or sip a cocktail at the bar. Rather not do anything? Simply relax in style, or take relaxation seriously with a complimentary spa or hair cut treatment.
Earn Flying Club miles
We’ve now made the experience all the more rewarding. We’re offering 5,000 bonus Flying Club miles with every Guest List booking, taking you to your next upgrade or reward that much sooner.*
So why not treat yourself (or a friend) to a taste of the champagne lifestyle? Price of entry to the Guest List starts at just £240. And, as you'd expect, spaces are limited.
Call us on 0344 874 7747 at least 21 days before your flight to book. You can purchase the Guest List package for flights departing before 1 May 2016.

The Guest List package is available when travelling to/from London Gatwick, London Heathrow, Boston, New York (both Newark and JFK), San Francisco and Washington.
Please note: If you initially book a package for e.g. two people for two car rides costing £500/$800, and then you are unable to travel together, further costs will be payable if you need to split your journey, and both still require the Guest List.
2 people travelling together and requiring 2 car rides = £500 / $800
2 people then splitting their booking and travelling separately = 2 x £400 / $640 = £800 / $1,280
In this example you will be charged an additional £300 / $480
