How to listen to our website
Some operating systems also have built-in accessibility features that can read text aloud, or magnify parts of the screen. If you have your own screen reading software you should find it works well on ba.com. We suggest if your software has a ‘forms mode’, that you do not turn it on.

Screen resolutions
Our site is designed for optimal use at resolutions between 800×600 to 1920×1024.

Speed of the website
We recognise that a fast website is important to you and we work hard to make the site as fast as possible, but there are factors which impact the response speed which are outside our control. They include your connection speed, the performance of your Internet Service Provider, and the amount of traffic on the Internet at the time.
