British Airways was formed in 1974 and is considered to be the flag carrier of the UK. It was privatised in 1987 and from that date grew very rapidly, coining the phrase ‘The World’s Favourite Airline’. Until 2008, it was also the largest airline in the UK in terms of passenger numbers but, since 2008, this mantle has  been taken by Easyjet.

British Airways merged with Iberia Airlines in 2010, forming International Airlines Group who would go on to take-over Aer Lingus in 2015. The International Airlines Group is the third largest airline in the world.

British Airways operates 290 aircraft to pver 179 destinations world wide. It employs 40,000 staff including 15,000 cabin crew. BA flies over 40,000,000 passengers a year  and serves an eye watering 100,000 in flight meals each day.
