In case you missed it, British Airways is having a 100th anniversary and launched their ‘100th birthday’ advert on Friday. Take a look at it here. It is very “British”, plus a moment of it has been filmed in the exclusive “The Wing” which routes you from First Class check-in at Heathrow Terminal 5 straight through to the Concorde Room and First Class British Airways lounge, so it is worth a peak if you can get beyond the sheer number of British celebrities they have paid to be part of the advert.
As part of its 100-year birthday, British Airways will also be painting a Boeing 747 in the much-admired design of its predecessor British Overseas Airways Corporation (BOAC). The livery from the 1964 – 1974 BOAC era will adorn a B747, reg: G-BYGC. The aircraft will leave the paint shop in Dublin and arrive into Heathrow on February 18, before entering service the following day. This coincides with the 50th anniversary of the first Boeing 747 flight only a few days earlier.
British Airways Vs Virgin Atlantic
British Airways adverts are undoubtedly “British” but nothing beats Virgin Atlantic’s 25th birthday ad IMHO. Love the phone, love the hairdoos, it’s both classic and hilarious:
Oh and in case you missed it, the bikini airline has also recently launched a bikini girl video that has had almost 5 million views in an effort to generate more business. It makes their iconic bikini girls look classy when compared to the real-life version on their planes.
