FirstClass vs Economy: Channel 5 TV show, 2nd April

"Nigel Havers and Sally Lindsay receive the full British Airways experience as passengers and crew in economy and first class on a flight to Washington."

Now this will be interesting!

Would be good to have Club and WT+ thrown in for a good comparison. That way the differences won't appear so big. First to WT - Huge difference. First to Club, WT+ to WT - is there enough of a difference to make someone pay for it?

"Celebs' doing amateur CC doesn't exactly inspire me with confidence that it will be a 'meaningful' programme. However, I will give it a whirl.

From a channel which I notice was showing ‘Britain’s Favourite Crisps’ last night, I don’t have high expectations

Nigel Havers likes driving Mercedes cars, gets very grumpy signing autographs whilst demanding a discount.

You beat me to it!!!

This will be more 'chewing gum for the eyes' and a complete waste of airtime.

Maybe the aircraft could land at Yeovil Aerodrome and all the passengers could attend the Millennium barndance hosted by Jet from Gladiators.

I did enjoy rewatching the first series of "I"m Alan Partridge" on the IFE the other week!

I have sat next to Nigel Havers and partner quite a few times in a Local pub/restaurant in Wiltshire. He seems he just wants to enjoy dinner and never noticed him being particularly DYKWIA.
