It is confusing isn't it. And to make matters worse they have recently changed the fully flexible UK Dom fare code to "J" - so now if you get a print out from Checkmytrip it says you are travelling Club World.

Even though BA make it quite clear that UK Domestic Flights are economy - I have never understodd why they use a Club Class fare code for full fare economy rather than "Y"?

It can't be because of lounge access as that is a recent thing.

It causes all sorts of confusion and I have noticed that even the Fare Explorer booking engine refers to full fare UK Dom as "Business (Club)" now they have adopted "J" as the full fare code.

But the bottom line is that fare code or not you get 20 tier points and 500 miles for a UK Dom flight booked in J (and also for the cheaper B and H fares - which are not Business UK).

I hope this helps a little.
