British Airways is bringing romance to the skies this Valentine’s Day with love-themed desserts, complimentary heart chocolates, hours of rom-coms available through the airline’s ‘Love is in the air’ inflight entertainment category, as well as romantic gift ideas from its High Life Shop.
In addition British Airways Holidays has launched a range of city break offers to celebrate the most romantic date of the year (the 14th day of the second month). Customers can choose from a range of options including Paris, Copenhagen, Dublin, Turin, Edinburgh, Nice, Prague, Stockholm, and Verona*.
Whether flying short-haul or long-haul, every customer travelling on 14 February from Heathrow and Gatwick will feel the love with a complimentary heart shaped chocolate upon boarding. Customers in First and Club can enjoy the following desserts:
Valentine’s themed desserts
- White chocolate mousse heart with passion fruit and mango: A red chocolate-coated heart with a white chocolate, mango and passion fruit mousse, complemented by fresh berries, exclusively for those travelling in First.
- Chocolate and raspberry mousse: An indulgent chocolate and raspberry mousse with a gingerbread crumble, complete with a chocolate heart on top, for those travelling in Club World and Club Europe (long and short-haul business class).
- Raspberry and rosewater Valentine’s macaron: As part of the Club Europe (short-haul business class) afternoon tea, customers can enjoy a raspberry macaron with a rosewater and raspberry filling, back by popular demand following its debut last year.
Long-haul: Rom-com inflight entertainment
British Airways has re-launched its popular ‘Love is in the air’ category on its inflight entertainment. Customers looking to soak up the romance on long-haul flights can watch a range of rom-com classics, including Marry Me, Along Came Polly and Music and Lyrics amongst others.
Anti-Valentine’s advocates need not worry though, as thrillers such as Birds of Prey, Nocturnal Animals and The Meg are being added for a limited time.
Customers relaxing before their flight will be able to enjoy heart-shaped gingerbread at the Heathrow Club and First lounges, plus beautiful fresh flower arrangements in both the airlines Heathrow and Gatwick lounges.
In addition, an exclusive wine tasting will take place at the Whispering Angel bar in the Club Lounge at T5B from 12:00 for rosé lovers who want to celebrate together.
For customers travelling from the USA, all British Airways lounges, including San Francisco, New York and Boston will be offering a pink gin-based cocktail called ‘Strawberry Aviation’ to make travelling a little bit sweeter this Valentine’s Day.
Short-haul: Make a flight more special with the High Life Café
For those customers who’d like to make their trip a little more special, or for those whose gifts got lost in the post, the High Life Café is offering a pre-ordered Champagne and chocolate celebration set. Customers can also call British Airways’ customer service team and include a complimentary personalised message in their order if they are treating someone on board.
There is also a range of Valentine’s gifts from the High Life Shop. From Tom Ford’s Café Rose Eau du Parfum to Hot Diamonds’ ‘The Romantic Pendant’, customers can purchase a selection of gifts from duty free for a pre- or post-flight treat.
