Welcome to our 100 part series on the history of BA and its predecessor airlines.
Rosalind “Roz” Hanby was the face of British Airways through much of the 1970s and early 1980s.
Roz joined BOAC as cabin crew in the early 1970s and worked for BOAC and BA on the Boeing 707 and VC10 aircraft, as well as Concorde, before taking up a full time role promoting BA.
Roz appeared in numerous print and TV advertisements all over the world, including a BA billboard that featured in the James Bond film “Moonraker”. Roz left BA permanently in 1982 to pursue a career in television.
