Solved: mystery of plots against BA's Flight 223

At last the mystery of who is plotting to bring down BA's flight 223 has been solved by an anonymous observer who wrote to the airline to reveal all. "The intelligence services act on intercepts of communications, eavesdropping, etc." he begins. "What's important to people when they travel outside the EU? The duty free, naturally.

These repeated references of "you must get the duty free" are probably being interpreted as "you must get the 223". Even a foreigner will say the words duty free in English. That makes it sound more threatening. I'd suggest that you consider changing the flight number."

BA seem to be going all out on the web advertising front. Did you see all the 'Club World' watermark underneath all that text. They've also got a thing going in the Times Online


As for the BA223 story:

Well, crackpot story or not, BA have changed the flight number - it is now, or soon will be the BA 293.
