Flying, Hollywood style
The skies were graced by a magnificent aviation marvel—the British Airways A380—on September 25 on its maiden flight from London to Los Angeles. Leaving a trail of glamour in its wake, the flight has been dubbed the ‘red carpet route’ owing to a star-studded passenger list including Thandie Newton, Gemma Arterton and South African rugby player Bryan Habana. The flight’s inaugural kicked off with live performances from Melanie C and Matt Cardle at Terminal 5 and even afforded a chance glimpse at Daniel Craig, Angelina Jolie and George Clooney lookalikes who checked in early. The onboard service pampers VIP guests with Sunspel pajamas, boutique toiletries and a five-course tasting menu.
