BRI­TISH AIR­WAYS’ UN­USUAL BOARD­ING PASS

Bri­tish Air­ways is su­per ex­cited about Eng­land’s World Cup win over Swe­den that has the Bri­tish team pro­ceed­ing to the semi-fi­nals with Croa­tia. To cel­e­brate the event, the air­line teamed up with Ogilvy UK to cre­ate a spe­cial “ticket” for a pas­sen­ger named “Foot­ball” who is trav­el­ing from Moscow to “Home.” More­over, soccer fans will surely be amused by the “Gate: South” pun, in ref­er­ence to team man­ager Gareth South­gate. The gate’s clos­ing time is also amus­ingly writ­ten as, “1966,” a re­minder of the last time the na­tional team brought home a win. The seat num­ber, “52H,” is the num­ber of years that have passed since then. Ogilvy UK has posted the board­ing pass to its Twit­ter ac­count with the hash­tag #Itscom­inghome.
