Win British Airways flight tickets to world's 'Highest Stand-Up Comedy Gig'

On March 12 British Airways will team up with Comic Relief to change their dinner menu from “chicken or fish” to chuckles and fits of laughter ... and tickets for the in-flight fun fest are still up for grabs.

BA will kick off a year long partnership with Comic Relief by setting a record for the 'Highest Stand-Up Comedy Gig in the World' on a flight over the UK.On the bill are stand up comics Dara O'Briain, Jack Whitehall and Jon Richardson, who will have passengers rolling in the aisles as they help raise money in the run up to Red Nose Day.

To be in with a chance of winning a ticket for the comedy flight, text 'Fly1' to 70300 or visit

Watch them talk about the event here:

Texts cost 50p and you can make a donation to Comic Relief at the same time (in multiples of £3). To enter the competition for tickets without donating, visit the BA website.
The record breaking event is part of a wider campaign by British Airways called 'Flying Start', which aims to transform the lives of disadvantaged children at home and abroad.

British Airways said:“All donations received from the public through Flying Start will go directly to help transform children's lives. In fact, we aim to raise up to £6 million by 2013 to improve the lives of hundreds of thousands of children living in the UK and in some of the poorest countries across the world.”

For example, BA’s ‘Fying Start’ project supports The Busoga Association in Uganda. The Association's work helps people living in the urban slum of Jinja to find work and better housing, to have access to basic health care and to enable children to get a good education.
