That was a phenomenal ad. Do you remember the one that showed the island of Manhattan coming into land at LHR? It went something like "BA flies more people across the Atlantic than live in Manhattan" or some such thing. Very cool, high-tech. Believe it won some award(s) as well.

Quoting LongHauler (Reply 3): One thing I noticed for the first time ... the face turns into a globe at the end.
Yeah I had forgotten that also . I just love the bit with all the nationalities and the British flag in the background. I think those were much better days and the BA prodcut was better then IMHO. But I guess its down to personal prefference.

Yes that was a cool ad. I couldnt find it on youtube though . Anyone got a link???
WOW , thanks for that , I typed in Manhatten BA ad and nothing came up . I was 8 when that was on TV !!! God another lifetime ago. Was that filmed in West London??? The houses seem familier like Chiswick or Ealing . Its amazing to see the Twin Towers !!!!!
