This is possibly one of the best-known British Airways commercials, directed by Hugh Hudson. A group of swimmers in red arrive on the shore, while a group in blue comes from the city, and a group in white is on a field. "Every year, the World's Favourite Airline brings 24 million people together", the announcer says, while people from around the world embrace. The last frame shown above this description does not give justice to the beauty of this commercial's ending. The music is Malcolm McLaren's "Aria on Air", which resembles both Yanni's "Aria" and the so-called "Flower Duet". Perhaps this commercial was so beautiful and is so well-known that in 2007, it was spoofed in a Silverjet TV commercial directed by none other than Hugh Hudson again!
