Are YOU called Harry or Meg(h)an and flying this weekend?

If you are, but you’re not flying, and want to check out BA’s Galleries First lounge you may want to book yourself a quick weekend break.  Or perhaps just a quick there and back to Manchester!

Any British Airways passenger flying out of Terminal 5 this Saturday, the day of the wedding, who is called Harry, Meghan or Megan, will be allowed to use the First Wing private security channel and the Galleries First lounge.

This offer applies to everyone travelling with Harry or Meg(h)an too.

That is the good bit.  Here is the silly bit.

BA93 (13.10) to Toronto on Saturday will have a 100% Harry or Meg(h)an crew.  Oh yes.  Given that these are not hugely common names I can imagine it was tricky to get that many rostered given the strict rules on flying hours and gaps between flights.

There is some upside for passengers on this flight though.  Every passenger will get a personal bottle of Castelnau Blanc du Blanc champagne and an individual celebratory wedding cake.
