to be honest? Not like they used to. I use my ba staff travel a lot to travel back and forwards to sydney (home). the only time I get upgraded to Club is if the CSD operating the flight has picked up (and taken sympathy of) my 'begging letter'.
World Traveller Plus has been our downfall as staff! Lol
generally pre WTP days you would get bumped from WT to Club if they had to upgrade. Now it tends to be from WT to WTP. They will generally only upgrade to Club if they really have to (ie down the back overbooked). This applies to both BA staff and other airlines.

Thank You again for the info, this will help out on my around the world trip starting next monday. I will be going from PIT-LGA on US. Take the train to JFK to catch a VS 744 to LHR. Spend the day in London and catch one of the BA flights to HKG that night. We are spending the night in HKG and catching one of the CX flights the next afternoon. When we get to LAX we are either going to take the redeye on US back to PIT or take HP to LAS for a night or two. I was really hoping to get upgrading on at least one of the longer legs just to make to trip a bit more bearable.
