How to get on board Comic Relief's celebrity in-flight comedy gig

If you thought in-flight entertainment couldn't get better than films on demand, get yourself onto BA's charity flight in March to watch a live stand-up comedy show in aid of Comic Relief.

British Airways is giving comedy fans an amazing opportunity to watch a special stand-up show by comedians Dara O'Brien, Jack Whitehall and Jon Richardson on Saturday 12 March for Red Nose Day.

The charity gig will also be an attempt to set a new Guiness World Records title for the Highest Stand-up Comedy Gig in the World.

The flight on a British Airways A321 aircraft will leave Heathrow's Terminal 5 and fly over the UK for two and a half hours holding 180 lucky passengers who will enjoy the special performance in the air while sipping Champagne.

Comedian O'Brien said: "I've performed in some unusual places, but never at 35,000 ft! I'm really excited to be involved in this unique event and raise money for Comic Relief."

There are 75 tickets to be won by entering British Airways' competition at or by texting FLY1 to 70300*.
