Welcome to our official Google+ page. We hope you like it, as we’ll be doing things a little bit differently here.
Throughout our 90-year history, we have delivered products and services to make travel easier for you, our customers. We always seek inspiration and explore completely new ways of improving your travel experience. This has led to us being one of the first airlines to introduce both a fully flat bed in our Club World cabin (1999) and a frequent flyer programme, Executive Club (1982) to reward you every time you choose to fly with us.
We haven’t stopped there. More recently, we were among the first airlines to introduce an iPhone app (2008) and by listening to you we now have a mobile app for Android, iPhone, Nokia and Blackberry mobile phones.
Inspiration comes from many places and by sharing this, we’ve been able to develop unique products. For example, our Club World cabin was inspired by the early days of BOAC and Saville Row tailoring, we also collaborate with fashion and textile designers to explore and deliver contemporary new looks that maintain a British style.
Your contribution has been invaluable in improving the travel experience. As such, our Google+ page will be where you can share things that inspire you every day. We’ll be creating circles you can be part of and reveal exclusive content where we hope you’ll give us your honest opinion.
