Laugh along to British Airways' clever safety video


About Rachel

Ys social influencer and roving reporter, avid foodie and devotee of the grape.


Featuring Rowan Atkinson, Gordon (f***ing) Ramsay and Gillian Anderson in partnership with Comic Relief.

All your favourite UK actors are auditioning for a part in the new British Airways safety video - and it’s kind of awesome.

You’ll find award-winning stars such as Sir Ian McKellen, Jim Broadbent and Chiwetel Ejiofor strap in to play their part in this star-studded demonstration.

British Airways safety video - director's cut


Particularly entertaining, is Gordon Ramsay reading out lines written for Joanna Lumley of Absolutely Fabulous fame, and Jim Broadbent being particularly pleased with his performance placing his tray-table upright.

There’s also Rowan Atkinson stealing the show in his usual fashion without even having to say a word.

The video will raise money in supporting Flying Start, a global charity partnership between Comic Relief and British Airways. The charity helps raise money for underprivileged children in the places that British Airways flies to.  

According to the airline, you’ll be able to see this onboard from September, and I have a feeling attention rates will spike!
