Everyone loves Christmas movies, right?
Well, British Airways has taken four lucky children away for a weekend in New York City, where they got to follow in the footsteps of Kevin in Home Alone 2.
And you can watch how it all went down!
‘A Very Kevin Christmas’ represents British Airways’ biggest and best BA Magic surprise so far and has been captured in two films released this week, showing New York in all its festive splendour. The first film is a movie-style teaser. The second, a longer chronicle of their adventure, includes interviews with parents revealing the inspiring and moving background stories of each of the young people in the group.
The three-day trip included a VIP flight, a stay at the world-renowned Plaza hotel and surprises delivered by a selection of popular celebrity faces including Pixie Lott, Harry Maguire, Maya Jama, Jodie Whittaker, Millie Bobby Brown and Jon Culshaw as President Trump.
The kids (plus one parent each) got to go ice skating in Central Park, visit the Rockettes show at the Radio City Music Hall, go toy shopping in the newly re-opened FAO Schwarz and have an ice cream feast in The Presidential Suite of the Plaza.
This special trip kicks off #BAMAGIC100 which will see the airline thank its customers by surprising them with 100 acts of kindness (big and small), throughout its Centenary year.
Alex Cruz, British Airways’ chairman and CEO, said that the children had all been through difficult situations recently, and couldn’t be more deserving of this BA Magic surprise.
“New York is a magical destination to visit at Christmas whether you are a child or an adult, so it was the perfect place to stage our most ambitious BA Magic surprise yet.
“As our films reveal, the children have had to cope with very challenging circumstances and their stories are moving and inspiring in equal measure. We wanted to give them and their parents a magical start to Christmas they will never forget,” he said.
“As part of our centenary celebrations in 2019, we’ll also be launching BA Magic 100 when we’ll look forward to surprising many of our customers with special treats which will make their flying experience even more special.”
