British Airways staffs flight with couples to mark Valentine’s Day

British Airways celebrated Valentine’s Day by ensuring all cabin crew on a 14-hour flight were couples who work for the airline.

Five couples worked on board flight BA245 from London Heathrow to Buenos Aires, which touched down on Wednesday.

Their schedule meant they could enjoy a romantic getaway in the Argentine capital after their shift.

Cabin crew couple Carl Bloor, 37, and Nathan Weekes, 42, from Bristol, joined the airline four years ago and got married in November.

Mr Bloor said: “We’ve been together for 13 years and we work well together in every aspect of our lives, so working as colleagues on board is no different.

“We’re over the moon to be showing our customers some British Airways love on this very special flight.”

The pair have travelled all over the world together.

While working for British Airways they have visited New York, the Caribbean, Turkey, Spain and Florida.

Aimee Anders, 21, and Christopher Coyne, 26, met while working for the airline and got engaged in December.

They have worked together on 17 flights and enforce a rule of “no plane talk” at their home near Heathrow.

Ms Anders advised other couples who travel for work to stay in contact through video calls and “remember to make time for each other on your days off”.

She added: “We absolutely love working together and our jobs have afforded us some amazing opportunities.

“We’ve been on a horseback safari in Johannesburg, to Mardi Gras in New Orleans, to Niagara Falls in Toronto and wine tasting in Santiago.”
