It’s been a slightly bizarre week here at Head for Points. When we found out last weekend that British Airways was going to be selling off its First Class crockery, we knew it would be of interest to the mainstream media and we sent out a couple of quotes.
Little did we know how it would take off. Last Monday was our biggest day ever for page views by a substantial margin.
We’ve been quoted in many newspaper stories including BBC News (where it was the most read story on Monday), The Telegraph, The Guardian and the Daily Mail. We’ve done a couple of radio interviews too.
I never expected that Rhys would end up, admittedly briefly, on NBC’s ‘Today’ breakfast show in the United States, however!
As its a quiet Sunday, I thought you might like to see the clip. It you are reading this via email, you need to visit the NBC website here.
We also did English-language Chinese TV!
Here is the clip, which you can also find on our (slightly neglected) YouTube channel here.
