BA's New Advert: 777 Driving Through London


With 38 days until the start of the London 2012 Olympic Games, British Airways, official airline partner of the games, has launched a new television advert promoting its "home advantage." The airline is encouraging UK residents to not fly for a change: "Don't fly, support Team GB" is the slogan.

The advert shows a Boeing 777 taxiing from Heathrow through the streets of London to the Olympic stadium in east London. You can watch the advert on YouTube by clicking here
