British Airways yesterday launched a collection of comedy videos for ‘Red Nose Day’ (Friday 24 March), starring David Walliams, Emma Bunton and Tom Daley dressed as British Airways staff, surprising customers in support of Comic Relief – the airline’s charity partner.
David Walliams assumes the role of customer service representative ‘Dave’, amusing customers at London Heathrow Terminal 5, and asking them to pose seriously for security photos. Spice Girl and UK radio presenter Emma Bunton spices up the ‘check-in-kiosks’, while Olympic medallist Tom Daley swaps his swimming trunks for luggage trunks, greeting customers in Terminal 5,.
Troy Warfield, British Airways’ director customer experience, said: “This year Red Nose Day is going back to its comedy roots, and we’re delighted to be supporting it with these great films from some of the nation’s favourite personalities working a shift at British Airways.
“The video is our way of saying ‘thank you’ to customers and staff for helping us raise over £15 million over the past seven years.”
