Reply To: BBC2 to Air “Airport Live” from Heathrow in JuneBack to Forum
Perhaps the BA A380 could have done both and been seen by an additional 2.5 million interested viewers at what is BA’s home airport.
Oh, the numbers for the airshow; . According to Gifas, the 2011 Paris show attracted 151,500 professional visitors and 204,000 members of the general public, and 3,250 journalists from 80 countries.
I don’t really understand why its current owners wouldn’t want additional free publicity on a prime-time TV show – even if only to advertise the fact that the Paris Airshow is on.
