BA Reveals Staggering ‘Load’ For Aircraft
Ever wondered where air stewards and stewardesses conjure up those items you ask for, mid-flight, without so much as a blink? Then wonder no more!

As the summer holidays reach full swing British Airways has released data revealing exactly what, and who, is on one of the airline’s 850 flights a day.

A Boeing 747 operating from Heathrow to JFK is loaded with over 7,000 items - many of which have to be unloaded and re-loaded before each flight. Included in the inventory are 101 full bottles and 388 quarter bottles of wine, 293 headrest covers, 350 bags of pretzels, 78 toilet rolls, five first aid kits and up to around 800 items of bedding

The study also looked at how people fly. In an average year one in two (47 per cent) are solo travellers, while 27 per cent travel as a pair. Around 70 per cent are travelling for leisure, while 28 per cent are flying for business.

So far in 2018, 26 per cent of cargo flying in the hold has been made up of priority goods such as fashion products and the latest smartphones or tablets, while five per cent of the cargo was specialist things like live animals or high value artwork.

Some of the year’s most interesting shipments includes Cognac from Bordeaux to Kuala Lumpur, emergency lettuce from Los Angeles in response to the UK’s heatwave vegetable shortage and royal wedding special magazines from the UK to the US!
