SQ A340-500 On BBC World: FASTTrack

Fri Oct 31, 2003 11:40 pm

For those of you fortunate enough to receive BBC World, SQ's A340-500 will be featured on BBC World's FASTTrack travel documentary at the following times:

Saturday 1st November at 0430 GMT

Repeated: Sunday 2nd at 0130; Monday 3rd at 2030; Tuesday 4th at 1330;
Wednesday 5th at 1630; Thursday 6th at 0130 & 0830 GMT.

Here's a brief description from the BBC World website:

"As Singapore Airlines launches the world's longest non-stop commercial plane journey, the next edition of FASTTRACK previews this Singapore to Los Angeles route and finds out how the 16-hour flight is possible. There are visits to Disneyland in Florida to ask whether its new multi-million dollar Mission Space ride will pay off in such a tough economic climate, and Yosemite National Park, where there's a delicate balance between attracting tourists and protecting the environment."


Happy Viewing!

I will definitely watch it - but the guy who presents FastTrack is such a knob - he clearly has absolutely NO CLUE about travel or the travel industry. He should be doing The Holiday Program, and they should get someone decent on who knows about travel etc. I volunteer my services.

Can you imagine Jeremy Clarkson doing FASTTrack? That'll be such a craker, I reckon. I can already hear him saying 'This airplane handles like a giraffe'. hahaha!

Damn it!

I wonder if someone can stream it on the internet? BBC doesn't give us UK viewers the opportunity of seeing this glamorous spectacle and BBC WORLD.
Anyone can fly, only the best Soar.

Hehe - yes, nice mental image there.

"The new Singapore Airlines First Class suite is pants-wettingly comfortable - and plenty of room for a bunk up with one of the lovely Singapore Girls phwoarrr " - he's a knob too, but at least he's funny.

I think BBC News 24 is the closest thing you can get to BBC World in the UK, they might screen the documentaries as well. There's a good chance, since while I was over in Birmingham a couple of weeks ago I saw Tim Sebastian's HARDTalk.

And Jonathan, that's a classic. You crack me up, mate!
