t British Airways is launching its new TV advertisement today. It is the first campaign for the airline, as opposed to BA Holidays, since the 100th anniversary campaign in 2019.

It will premiere during Gogglebox tonight. I’m not sure what that says about BA’s view of its customer base …..

There is no need to watch Gogglebox, however, as you can see it here (or click here if you are reading this via our daily emails).

There is also a ‘behind the scenes’ version which you can watch on You Tube here.

    Only have the £30 offer on my Platinum card 😭
    I would like to know if it will stack with the £175 Waitrose Amex offer I still have saved too ??

    Anyone know ?

  • Russ says:

    Qatar along with Hawaiian airlines perhaps being first carriers to install these seats #justsaying

  • Baggins Surrey says:

    Don’t know why BA ad made me tearful! Might be the signature music that evokes BA’s best times. So glad that they used actual staff, and still had some! I know from personal experience in the past, how proud and hopefully now and in the future, people were to work for BA. Let’s hope that is still valued. Hopefully we will be able actually fly our booked long haul with them in October.

    • Lady London says:

      Trying to remember where that music comes from. Italian?

    • VINZ says:

      I second this. They made me emotional and also laugh out loud at the end. Can’t wait to be able to fly again, freely… and no matter what, I still love BA.

  • Ernie says:

    “It will premiere during Gogglebox tonight”

    No it won’t.

  • James says:

    The to fly to serve BA advert from 2016 (I think) was the best one they’ve ever made. Literally gives me goosebumps even now
