Today, Sunday 25th, is British Airways official 100th birthday.

If you are flying today, you can expect bunting at check-in desks and Hotel Chocolat giveaways for short-haul passengers.

Children travelling through Heathrow and Gatwick today can also pick up a free BA backpack – see below for a 20% discount on buying a personalised one for your own child – as well as a special branded luggage tag and pin badge.

The August-long specials we have mentioned before – Tom Kerridge-designed menu options and the limited edition The White Company amenity kits (in white) – are also ongoing.

And if it’s also YOUR birthday today, whether you are flying or not, you may have received 9,000 Avios as a birthday gift!

Overall I think British Airways has done a good job with the 100th anniverary celebrations, especially the retro liveries.  And, of course, there may still be more to come.
