To celebrate the Royal wedding, the BA93 on May 19 to Toronto - the city where their relationship took off - will be operated by an all-star crew of Megans and Harrys.
The ten-strong cabin crew, made up of two Harry’s, 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.
Additionally, on the Toronto celebration flight, the ‘Royal Crew’ will give every customer on board their individual celebratory wedding cake.
Carolina Martinoli, director of Brand and Customer Experience, British Airways, 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.”
Megan Horsley, customer service manager, British Airways, who will lead the namesake crew, said, “Harry and Meghan’s relationship started across the Atlantic so it seemed fitting for all of us to take-off to Toronto on their special day. I’ve flown with another Megan once or twice before, but never seven, so we might have to all call each other by our surnames during this very special flight!”
Throughout May, customers on long-haul flights will be able to watch episodes of the Toronto-shot TV series Suits, enjoy documentaries and podcasts about how Harry and Meghan met.
