British Airways is adding some extra sparkle to customers’ journeys ahead of Prince Harry’s marriage to American TV star Meghan Markle.
To celebrate the Royal wedding this Saturday, 19 May 2018, the BA93 to Toronto – the city where their relationship took off – will be operated by an all-star crew of only Meghan and Harry’s.
The 10-strong cabin crew will be made up of two Harry’s, seven Megan’s and one Meghan. They will operate the flight that departs Heathrow at 1.10pm, an hour after the couple say ‘I Do’ at Windsor Castle, just seven miles from the airport.
Senior First Officer, Harry Blake, will be behind the controls of the flight deck, alongside the Captain.
To celebrate the Royal couple, any customer departing from Terminal 5 on the big day, who is called Harry, Meghan or Megan and their travel companions, will be invited to use the airline’s First lounge.
Megan Horsley, British Airways Customer Service Manager, who will lead the namesake crew, said: “Harry and Meghan’s relationship started across the Atlantic so it seemed fitting for all of us to take-off to Toronto on their special day. I’ve flown with another Megan once or twice before, but never seven so we might have to all call each other by our surnames during this very special flight!”
