Next week, we’ll be celebrating the marriage of Prince William and Kate Middleton in style by holding onboard street parties for passengers flying on the day.

Flights leaving from the UK on the 29th April heading to the USA and the Caribbean will be transformed into a traditional UK street party to ensure passengers don’t miss out on the royal wedding fun.


Cake, Tea and Bunting

Passengers travelling in economy and premium economy will receive an afternoon tea of wedding cake and traditional English breakfast tea, served in a souvenir union jack lunch box, and the cabins will be decorated in bunting and union jack headrests to create a patriotic atmosphere. All passengers will also receive special Kate and William themed love hearts and ice-cream during the flight.

Upper Class passengers will also have the option to join in with the festivities as the cabin will be decorated in union jack bunting and wedding cake and wedding favours will be available at the Upper Class bar. Each flight will also have a royal wedding themed dressing up box for the crew to take part in the onboard merriment.
