From Green Book to Bohemian Rhapsody, British Airways now offers 'Award Worthy' in-flight entertainment
Customers can also enjoy a number of award winners from previous seasons including Three Billboards outside of Ebbing, Missouri, Get Out and cult classic The Godfather, said the British Airways.
How many times did you have to spend your precious time searching for quality entertainment content onboard a flight? You may have lost count! However, soon you will not face the issue, at least onboard most British Airways flights. To celebrate the 72nd British Academy Film Awards (BAFTAs) and the 91st Academy Awards ceremony (The Oscars) as well as to provide quality entertainment content to fliers, British Airways has launched a channel dedicated to award-winning and nominated films as part of its in-flight entertainment.
"The category, named Award-Worthy, features films that collectively won eleven BAFTAs and ten Oscars in this year’s awards season, as well as receiving 77 nominations across the two ceremonies. Films in the category include The Favourite, which was nominated for 12 Baftas and ten Oscars. The film scooped eight awards including the accolade of ‘Best Actress’ at both ceremonies for Olivia Colman, who also features in the British Airways safety video and in the airline’s most recent advert for BA100," it said.
Queen biopic and new release Bohemian Rhapsody, which picked up an impressive 12 nominations and six awards across the two ceremonies including ‘Best Actor’ for Rami Malek’s stunning portrayal of Freddie Mercury, is available to view on board.
Customers can also enjoy a number of award winners from previous seasons including Three Billboards outside of Ebbing, Missouri, Get Out and cult classic The Godfather.
Carolina Martinoli, British Airways’ Director of Brand and Customer Experience, said: “We know that for many of our customers watching the latest films when they fly is a real treat they look forward to so we make sure that we’re serving up the best the cinema has to offer. “This channel in our programming brings the industry’s award winners from the silver screen to the air.”
"The content is updated regularly, with categories often added for major holidays or key calendar events – a ‘Wonder Women’ channel is also available for the month of March to celebrate International Women’s Day," the statement added.
The special content forms a part of the 1,300 hours of films, top TV shows and audio programmes that customers can enjoy via their personal screen. The airline is also currently investing £6.5 billion for customers over five years, including new aircraft, new cabins, new catering, new lounges, WiFi, and new routes.
