British Airways sponsors Brighton and Hove Pride

Pam Ann

British Airways will be flying with Pride in Brighton on Saturday August 13 teaming up with comedy airline icon Pam Ann

The world-renowned spoof air stewardess, played by Australian comedienne Caroline Reid, will be at the helm of the British Airways float in the ‘Pride in Brighton & Hove’ parade.

British Airways is a sponsor of Pride in Brighton & Hove 2011 and the theme for this year’s festival is ‘Out of This World’.

British Airways staff and crew will walk alongside the aircraft-themed float giving away goodies to the crowds.

There will be a DJ playing music on board and a running commentary from Pam Ann.

Pam Ann last worked with British Airways four years ago when she starred in a tongue-in-cheek viral film campaign to highlight British Airways’ brilliant cabin crew service. In the first week of release the clip had over 160,000 hits and over 500 sites linked to it.

Silla Maizey, British Airways managing director Gatwick, said: “Brighton Pride is a fabulous opportunity for us to demonstrate how proud we are to have such a diverse workforce at British Airways, and to show our commitment to the wider community around us at Gatwick.

“I’m delighted that legendary performer Pam Ann, who has a long association with the airline industry, will be appearing on our float. I know that she’ll keep the crowds entertained and that Brighton Pride will be a huge success for everyone involved.”

And a word from the lady herself. Says Pam Ann: “I never got to fly BA’s Concorde, I never got to fly BA with HRH Wills and Kate, I never made it as BA cabin crew, BUT I made it onto BA’s float for Brighton Pride! I am so excited to be doing a full BA First Class service with my British Airways sistahs! See you in Brighton on August 13th! Love Pam Ann x”
