OT but I (regrettably) watched "A Bunch of Amateurs" the other day and VS had clearly paid for some very overt product placement in there, trying to highlight their 'glamour' image.

A poor decision on their part as it was truly one of the worst films I've ever seen. Horrifically bad. BA did well not to feature in that one.

Watched the new film "Spooks: A Greater Good" last night and T5 is featured in a few scenes. Discrepancies with real-world T5 were there however, T5B is accessible without going through Security to name just one. Fairly sure I saw Little Red as well - perhaps a heyday to when it was filmed sometime ago?

Still a pretty good film though!

Not BA, but a BEA Viscount G-AMOF in The Man Who Knew Too Much.

Bullseye had a trip to the West Coast of the USA on BA as the Star Prize hiding behind Bully.

Footage of a BA 747 taking off appears in the sequence before Michael starts his trip in Michael Palin: Around the World in 80 Days.

Currently halfway through watching a film called Hijacked. Made in 2017.

The airline is called Speedbird and they are wearing quasi BA uniforms. The Flower Duet music was playing in the background.

It's billed as a thriller but it's in the 'so bad it's good' camp.

In "Jumbo: The Plane that Changed the World" a TV documentary BA had a few minutes as a customer for the plane.

In The Professionals: Close Quarters the episode starts at Heathrow and there is a shot of a BA Concorde taxiing and then a BA advertising poster a couple of minutes later.
