To celebrate Valentine’s Day, a British Airways‘ (BA) service from London to Argentina was staffed entirely by five cabin crew couples. British Airways Flight 245 arrived into Buenos Aires from London’s Heathrow Airport (LHR) on Wednesday after a 14-hour flight.
In a statement, the carrier confirmed that all of the working couples would be able to enjoy the sights of Argentina’s capital city after the long-haul service. The airline also revealed that three of the couples met while employed with BA, with one pair recently getting engaged and another recently celebrating their nuptials.
A newly married pair, crew members Carl and Nathan began working at BA more than four years ago. Commenting on their working relationship, Carl said, “We’ve been together 13 years – we work well together in every aspect of our lives, so working as colleagues on board is no different. We’re over the (honey)moon to be showing our customers some British Airways love on this very special flight.”
Together, the couple have seen the Caribbean, Spain, Turkey, Florida and New York.
Offering an insight into the nuances of their relationship, couple Aimee and Christopher explained that they have a ‘no plane talk’ rule outside of work and offered advice to couples who frequently have to travel separately.
Their top tips include using FaceTime to keep in touch and, if possible, traveling within the same time zone to make communication easier. They also reminded couples to create time for each other during spare moments.
Offering her comments, Aimee said, “We absolutely love working together and our jobs have afforded us some amazing opportunities – we’ve been on a horseback safari in Johannesburg, to Mardi Gras in New Orleans, to Niagara Falls in Toronto and wine tasting in Santiago.”
