British Airways Gives Cancer Survivor Unforgettable Surprise
26 year-old Hannah Smith from Aberdeen had booked a holiday to the party town of Las Vegas to celebrate being cancer-free, after falling ill with cancer at the age of just 24.
The rare illness, which saw Hannah undergo painful treatment for a year, left her with difficulties walking.
But she and her pals were astonished when they arrived at Heathrow’s Terminal 5 to find they had been upgraded to ‘First’ with all the perks that come with it, including free Champagne, flat bed suites and access to plush lounges.
After a luxurious First class flight, Hannah and her friends were whisked off to Las Vegas’ most iconic resort – Caesars Palace – where they were upgraded from their standard rooms to the Nobu Hotel’s glamorous Hakone Suite. The stunning suite in the luxurious boutique hotel within a hotel included a living area, its very own bar, two separate bedrooms fit for celebrities, and a sweeping panoramic view of Las Vegas Boulevard.
Hannah, said: “Being ill makes you realize that life is for living - and Las Vegas is certainly a place to feel alive!
British Airways is also inviting customers who have booked a trip with them in 2017 to email their stories in, in the hope of making another person’s trip #unforgettable.
