BA Crash Landing Survivors to Receive Free Holidays

When a British Airways flight crash-landed at Heathrow in January this year, passengers were eager to praise the pilot for their escape. The miraculous landing resulted in only a few minor injuries and was attributed to the skill and presence of mind of the pilot who managed to divert the plane onto the grass inside the airport after the aircraft lost power on approach to Heathrow.

Now, British Airways has announced a small token of its regret for the anguish that passengers suffered — all 136 passengers on board BA38 will receive a two week vacation at a destination of their choice from a selection of 300, and can bring their family members along.

That’s not all. Passengers will also receive a free membership to BA’s Gold Card club for a period of five years, along with a host of other privileges.
