Harrods takes to the skies with BA

British Airways hooked up with Harrods to celebrate their new route between London and Johannesburg by hosting a unique in-flight runway.

Yesterday, 30,000 feet over the South African City, the aircraft was transformed into the longest runway in the sky to highlight the best of British.

The 200 on-board guests enjoyed a very special Champagne high tea (created specially by The Saxon and South Africa’s top chef, David Higgs) as the aisles were taken over by a curation of summer collections from Jenny Packham, Victoria Beckham, Mathew Williamson, Ralph & Russo and Temperley.
