For all of us history buffs out there - there is a video on YouTube on the History of British Airways that was used when we started up the Phoenix - London flight in 1996, which back then was an old BCAL DC-10-30 4 times a week into LGW. Today the flight is 6 times a week into LHR on a 747-400.

Hope you enjoy. The title of the movie is "The History of British Airways"

Cheers,
BP1

Was this a BA video for the PHX start-up or the city of PHX doing this. When the word 'privatized' (as opposed to 'privatised') came up, I knew it had to have been a US-made video.

I never saw this living on the air here in PHX.

Great video, though. Love the (I am assuming) purser tell the captain he is "quite the whip in the galley, Sir". That'll happen now.  rotfl

He actually says "I'll crack the whip in the galley, Sir", referring to the female stewardesses!

Blasted middle-aged hearing. Still just as funny. Now days the response from the females would be "get it your own g-d self".

The video was made for the three of us on the BA Sales Team in PHX to promote the flight in 1995 and 1996. Regardless, the video is a nice tribute to the World's Favourite. It was edited in New York by a colleague of the airline and I believe with some Satchi and Satchi assistance. We used the video at major sales events but it never did air here in Phoenix.

Regardless, I hope you enjoy as I have been wanting to get this on for many years now.

Cheers,

Well as an employee of the airline and a strong supporter of the brand I feel that the current management are more intent on narrowing cost and losing its emphasis on the customer and personal touch, examples such as the poor seating policy, baggage policy, removal of experienced crew from certain cabins and a handful of other changes that are currently taking place are good examples!!!!

It has long lost its identity as "The worlds favourite" and has a hell of a long way to go before it can be even considered such again.

I feel that in as little as 3 years the airline we know and love will be no more than a beefed up longhaul loco which happens to have a few fancy cabins!!!!

T5 is not the golden chalice they are making it out to me....just another shiny new mall!!!!!!

I'd love to see a list of all destinations worldwide which were ever served by BOAC and/or BA.
