"To celebrate the climax of one of the most thrilling Ashes test series in history, British Airways is offering hundreds of flights to Australia for the price of an innings.
On Thursday 8th September, British Airways will offer seats on its routes from London to Sydney and Melbourne for the equivalent price of Australia’s first innings in the Ashes decider at the Oval.
British Airways commercial director Martin George said: “We have been bowled over by the interest from customers and staff alike and we want to show our support for the England team.
“We’re hoping for a great match on Thursday, with Australia bowled for a low score and great prices for our customers into the bargain.”
