    I think having some of the BA heritage Collection (currently on display at Waterside) on display in a special area in T5 (and ideally T3 too) would be nice, perhaps with certain art pieces/vintage posters displayed in one or more of the lounges. Educational, fun and presumably not that expensive!


    Apart from British Airways celebrating its centenary in 2019, another celebration of greater importance should be given voice like no other.
    John Alcock and Arthur Whitten Brown made the first direct transatlantic flight in a twin-engined Vickers Vimy bomber, June 14 -15, 1919 from St.John´s in Newfoundland to Clifden in Ireland. They took 16 hours 12 minutes to fly the 1980 miles.
    Let us hope something worthy of the two pioneers will be prepared and celebrated from the housetops.BA should play a big role in this especially as the years coincide.
