British Airways staff perform poem to Britain

British Airways has written a poem to its customers.

The poem was performed by members of the airline’s staff including cabin crew, ground handlers, pilots and chief executive Alex Cruz with a video compiled.

The video, which has been shared on its YouTube channel, says:

Dear Britain…

You’re an incredible bunch; how you’re coping with these difficult times

With so many going the extra mile to look after us; and all coming together by staying apart; while managing to keep your unique British sense of humour

You’re doing your bit and we’re trying to do our bit too; flying you home to your family and friends; and keeping vital equipment and supplies moving through to the people who need them most

Like you our colleagues are doing all they can to support the NHS; but we miss you too; and while you can’t yet start flying we know you’ll never stop dreaming of reuniting with your loved ones; of exploring new places; of creating new adventures and wonderful memories, dreaming of a day when you can look at the sky from a magical window

So we will do everything in our power to get you, Britain, flying again

And when we do, we will do it with pride, in honour of you all

We love you Britain.
