British Airways cabin crew member Amy Hart will appear on Love Island

There is a British Airways cabin crew member on Love Island ….

We are probably barking up the wrong tree here in terms of what appeals to the HfP readership, but if you tune into Love Island on ITV next week you will see a Gatwick-based British Airways Customer Service Manager featured.

(EDIT: it seems that she may have left BA to do this, although Love Island talks about her crew role in the present tense.)

British Airways Amy Hart Love Island

26 year old Amy Hart, pictured below, is one of the new contestants trying to find love for the next two months.  You are more likely to recognise her from the photo below than the one above.

Given the shenanigans that happen on Love Island I’m sure the British Airways PR team are keen to keep this quiet, although they may be fighting a losing battle.  Amy has already told the tabloids about accompanying Piers Morgan on a flight and her Instagram feed includes a link to her agent ….

If you’re desperate to keep up (and I know you are) Love Island starts Monday at 9pm on ITV.

    Once again you’re looking for trash to fill out your website. This is not of interest to 99% of UK points collectors.

    Why didn’t you post something more relevant like Amex degrading priority pass instead?

    • Freddy says:

      I must be in the 1%. Bit better than the amex apocalypse

      • jimA says:

        yes I’m in the 1% as well – not very interesting but a lot better than endless posts about lost opportunities to work the system

        lighten up – while not world shattering news – if it didn’t appeal to you then pass it by

    • Rob says:

      Because UK PP is not changing AFAIK.

      Any more questions?!

  • v says:

    Love Island is degenerate garbage.

  • Simon says:

    I’ve never seen love island but in her cabin crew picture I think she looks lovely. I wish her well.
