British Airways Brings London Symphony Orchestra Onboard
There is now music to the ears of British Airways passengers, as the airline has added tracks from the London Symphony Orchestra to its in-flight entertainment system.
A selection of great music from 10 London Symphony Orchestra albums are now available on board the airlines flights, spanning the classical, opera and choral genres.
The Orchestra performs tracks from world-renowned composers including Mozart, Verdi, Haydn, and Debussy among others.
Customers will also recognise a number of tracks from Prokofiev’s Romeo and Juliet, the 1984 film Amadeus and Holst’s The Planets, one of the most popular and widely recognised musical works of the 20th century.
Adding music from the London Symphony Orchestra to British Airways entertainment system gives customers even more choice on what they want to listen to or watch on board.
The London Symphony Orchestra has a mission to bring its music to as many people as possible. Having a selection of its live recordings on flights is an excellent way to give British Airways customers the chance to explore great music.
The latest change to British Airways’ in-flight entertainment system is just one of a number of ways that the airline is looking to better-serve its customers.
Earlier this year a renewed food offering was rolled out in World Traveller including, on longer flights, a full second meal. In Club World, new dining and White Company bedding is being rolled out across the network.
These changes come as part of the airline’s £4.5 billion investment for customers over the next five years which also includes new cabins in its Boeing 777 aircraft operating out of Gatwick.
British Airways passengers on long-haul flights have free access to over 1,000 hours of films, TV shows and audio programmes via their personal seatback screen.
