Airline makes desperate publicity grab to coincide with Royal wedding

British Airways has taken advantage of the Royal wedding to grab some shameless publicity. 

Ahead of His Royal Highness Prince Harry’s marriage to Meghan Markle this weekend, BA has announced a "special" flight.



To mark the Royal wedding, the BA93 on May 19 from London to Toronto - the city where the couple's relationship took off - will be operated by an all-star crew of only Meghan and Harrys.

The 10-strong cabin crew, made up of two Harrys, seven Megans and one Meghan, will operate the flight that departs Heathrow at 1.10pm, an hour after the couple say ‘I Do’ at Windsor Castle, just seven miles from the airport. 

Senior First Officer, Harry Blake, will be behind the controls of the flight deck, alongside the captain.

To celebrate the Royal couple, any customer departing from Terminal 5 on the big day, who is called Harry, Meghan or Megan and their travel companions, will be invited to use the airline’s First lounge, accessed through the exclusive First Wing.

The celebrations won’t stop there as individual lemon and elderflower Victoria sponges; the same flavour as Harry and Meghan’s wedding cake, will be given out to customers departing from Heathrow on May 19.

Extra bubbly has also been loaded on to the Toronto celebration flight and the ‘Royal Crew’ will give every customer on board a personal bottle of Castelnau Blanc du Blanc to enjoy alongside their individual celebratory wedding cake.

Carolina Martinoli, British Airways’ Director of Brand and Customer Experience, said: “We are so thrilled for Prince Harry and Meghan so wanted to bring some added sparkle and make our customers’ journeys fit for a Prince or Princess to celebrate this incredibly special day.”

Right.
