British Airways – Record Breaking Fun in the Sun

If cruise lines can tag themselves “The Fun Ships”, maybe British Airways can become the airline equivalent. On March 10, Great Britain’s flagship carrier set not one but two Guinness World Record titles by holding the “Highest Concert” as well as the “Highest Harlem Shake” dance.

To commemorate the 25th anniversary of Red Nose Day, an annual Comic Relief fundraiser, a red-nosed British Airways Boeing 767 at 43, 000 feet treated 128 lucky passengers to a concert in the sky. English pop singers Tony Hadley and Kim Wilde performed in the air while Go West and Bananarama entertained on the ground, all finishing up with a boisterous, sky-high rendition of the internet craze, The Harlem Shake. In great fun, over 4.5 million GBP was raised for the Comic Relief charity Flying Start.

In other fun news, British Airways has announced new, non-stop weekend service between London’s Heathrow airport and the Spanish Mediterranean island of Ibiza, beginning April 27, 2013. While hugely popular in Europe and the UK, this news should also be of interest to North Americans, as long gone will be the days of having to change airports in London or a flight and ferry option from the Spanish mainland to make a same day connection.

The new Saturday service will depart from Heathrow at 11.20am, arriving at 2.45pm, with return flights at 3.30pm arriving back at 5pm. The Sunday flights will depart Heathrow at 7.05am, arriving at 10.30am, with the return flight departing at 11.15am, arriving back in London at 12.45pm. In addition to this new service, British Airways will still operate flights from London’s Gatwick and LondonCity airports.
