An 11 hour transatlantic flight from San Francisco to London in a passenger configured BA aircraft may not seem the most conducive environment for 100 thinkers to come up with solutions to the world’s problems, but BA thinks otherwise with the launch of Ungrounded.
Here, somewhat belatedly, are details of terminal changes for flights departing from London Heathrow from 31 March 2013.
Our archive collection and commentary of British Airways’ most memorable TV advertisements over the past 40 years.
British Airways has a long history of producing some of the most memorable TV advertisements with the aid of its advertising agencies, formerly Saatchi & Saatchi/M&C Saatchi and more recently BBH.

It’s approaching one year since the parent company of British Airways, International Airlines Group, officially completed its purchase of bmi from Lufthansa. bmi’s former Heathrow operation has been fully integrated into BA for nearly six months. Of the two other airlines acquired from Lufthansa, bmibaby has been shut down and bmi regional has been sold to Sector Aviation Holdings.
The merger represented a significant milestone in BA’s history and a once in a lifetime chance to grow at a capacity constrained London Heathrow, so it’s worth looking at what has happened to former bmi routes and the current state of play at Heathrow.
British Airways has announced that it will increase its flights from London Heathrow to Seattle from 7 to 10 weekly from 3 April 2013.
British Airways has this evening confirmed that it has converted 18 of its 28 options for Boeing 787 aircraft into firm orders for delivery between 2017 and 2021.
The airline currently has 24 Boeing 787 aircraft on order for delivery from this year and this takes the total number of 787s to be delivered to BA to 42, meaning that the 787 will represent a substantial part of BA’s long-haul fleet. This is a clear vote of confidence by BA in the 787.
