Shock, Horror, BA crams 27 pax into First ClassBack to Forum
In reality, I think inaccurate reporting
But well done Team GB – fantastic performance.23 Aug 2016
From the look of the YouTube footage, Max Whitlock tried some of his gymnastics on the seats in first class. I’m flying First to Rio next month but suspect they won’t appreciate my doing likewise. Probably just as well…..
I echo FDOS’ comment- a remarkable achievement by everyone. Very well done.23 Aug 2016

Congratulations to a Great Team GB
Awesome performance and well done BA for entering into the spirit of team ethics, high performance and gold medal thinking!
Alas the rest of us, will need to be a bit more REAListic than RIOistic
Great clip on Sky Sports24 Aug 2016
A nice bit of publicity for BA, someone in their marketing department has done a very good job. I was fearful that Virgin would be doing the flight meaning the inevitable face to camera gurning from the bearded wonder.24 Aug 2016
Defcon – I should say I have no problem with Virgin as an airline, I don’t tend to use them but that is only because I find BA better on the routes they fly. I did however fear that should Virgin be the carrier of the GB Olympic team the photos would be dominated not by the winners but by Branson doing something “wacky” in the search for yet more free publicity. As might be expected BA acted in a more dignified manner.24 Aug 2016
The thing I found a bit odd about this story is that they apparently loaded 77 bottles of champagne. For +/- 350 pax that is less than 1.5 glasses per head. Is this another BA enhancement?24 Aug 2016
A very poor cheap effort again from BA. The £5 stick on posters to “Rename” the Aircraft, clearly can be seen against the faded old aircraft, and you can hardly notice the Gold nose.
KLM’s Orange painted 777-ER,fading into KLM Blue, took far more investment, thought and effort, including Dutch beers on tap facility! It has and will be flying around for many months, and is not stuck on for the day. Have seen it, it looks superb and very Unique and clever.28 Aug 2016
