An A380 by the looks of it too.

Not a movie but I have been watching all the Extreme Fishing programmes with Robson Green and he has been shown flying in BA F a few times. Got an upgrade to new F in the last programme I watched.

Good programme. He certainly enjoyed BAs CW in the previous series.

I forgot about Perfect Friday (1970) where there are some nice scenes inside Terminal 3 and Ursula Andress escaping with the loot on a BOAC 707. Another film with Stanley Baker, so perhaps he had some sort of deal.

Don't forget the fantastically 80's 'We'll take more care of you' billboard in Rio in Moonraker. Okay-not an aeroplane, but still a great piece of BA nostalgia.

In 'Frost/Nixon' Michael Sheen flies BA from LHR to LAX - there's quite an extended scene in the nose and upper deck bar of a 747-100.

I remember an episode of Bergerac....might even have been the very first one. Showing John Nettles flying back to Jersey on a Trident.

Remember the famous Cinzano ads with Leonard Rossiter and Joan Collins?

Rossiter is reading from a BA First Class menu in the one they did on a plane.

It was Joan Collins reading the menu.

BCal appears in Local Hero, MacIntyre (Peter Riegert) flies into Scotland where he is met at the airport by a young Peter Capaldi.

You can see the inside of First aboard a BOAC 747 about half way through this clip:

Things have come a long way since those days!

Yup - not BA at all - United, IIRC.
