British Airways does Man vs Plane

British Airways have set the challenge – Man vs Plane.

After South African rugby player, Bryan Habana raced the new A380 aircraft and won last year, BA have decided to extend the challenge to anyone who thinks they can beat the plane.

Celebrating the launch of their direct flights to Johannesburg on 12th February 2014, BA are offering five people from around the world a once in a lifetime opportunity to prove they have what it takes to race the A380 super-jumbo on the runway in South Africa next month.

The runner with the quickest time on the day will receive two return tickets (in Club World) on one of the direct A380 flights. Winners could be jetting off to London, LA, Hong Kong or Johannesburg.

What do you think? A more fun marketing tactic from BA, possibly inspired by the amount of comments saying they could smash Bryan’s time and easily beat the plane. I definitely couldn’t.
