During a recent BA flight from Miami to Heathrow, passengers were treated to a recorded announcement explaining the plane was about to crash. Just for fun, it was played a second time! Passengers didn't see the joke and were apparently screaming in fear of their lives.
A short time later, an announcement instructed passengers to ignore the warning as it had been mistakenly aired.
Just in case passengers didn't appreciate the joke, they were issued with written apologies as they left the plane.
Apparenly there was a similar inclident on another BA flight from Heathrow to Hong Kong last year.
To maximise the effect of the prank, maybe BA should screen an airline disaster movie before these announcements!
