Special flight for royal wedding
British Airways is adding some extra sparkle to customers’ journeys ahead of Prince Harry’s marriage to Meghan Markle.
To celebrate the royal wedding, the BA93 on 19 May to Toronto - the city where their relationship took off - will be operated by an all-star crew of only Meghan and Harrys.
The 10-strong cabin crew, made up of two Harrys, 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. 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 five on the big day, who is called Harry, Meghan or Megan and their travel companions, will be invited to use the airline’s exclusive lounge.
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 19 May.
Extra champagne has also been loaded on to the Toronto celebration flight and the ‘Royal Crew’ will give every customer on board a personal bottle of Castelnau Blanc du Blanc to enjoy alongside their individual celebratory wedding cake.
