British Airways Brings Shakespeare Onboard


British Airways is featuring some of the best of the Bard on board its long-haul flights with a special line up of in-flight entertainment to help celebrate the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death.


Customers flying on the airline’s long-haul flights will be able to listen to some of the world famous playwright’s most iconic plays as well as watch content unique to British Airways.


This includes a recording of a special live performance of ‘Much Ado About Nothing’, performed at


Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre, on London’s Southbank, which was first published in 1632.


Troy Warfield, British Airways’ director of customer experience, said: “We have been waiting in the wings for some time to raise the curtain on our Shakespeare-themed in-flight entertainment content.


“Shakespeare needs no introduction, but a long-haul flight with British Airways is the perfect opportunity to become reacquainted with some of the world’s best and most engrossing plays by the world’s best playwright.”


As well as being able to watch the live recorded performance of Much Ado About Nothing, filmed at The Globe Theatre, customers can also enjoy watching acclaimed actor Michael Fassbender’s incredible performance in the iconic roll of Macbeth, in the latest film version of the unforgettable play.


Other productions available through the airline’s on-Bard High Life entertainment’s audio selection, include The Tempest, Julius Caesar and Hamlet.


Locations which feature among Shakespeare’s plays also appear throughout British Airways’ global route network; from Windsor, close to Terminal 5 at Heathrow, the airline’s customers can wing their way to Athens, Cyprus, Denmark, Florence, Milan, Naples, Paris, Rome, Scotland, Venice, Verona and Vienna.


British Airways customers can enjoy over 1,300 hours of programmes, films and music, which includes audio books for language learning, as well as TV box sets and the very latest movie blockbusters on the airline’s High Life entertainment system.

Wow! Stunning! Hilton seems to be taking Africa by storm. Just a couple of years back, they opened the first ever in Eswatini.

I am really tempted to book the next ethiopian airlines ticket and relive your journey. The pictures shared with the post also reflect that you truly enjoyed the travel. Great post! I also like the fact that you have covered nuances about the food and entertainment service through the pictures. It helps people know what to expect on their travel by this airline.
