Celebrating one man's confidence, thanks to British Airways

BA's helped over 50,000 people in the last 30 years conquer their fear of flying and we were keen to capture Ronnie's story.

A new British Airways video, produced0 by Starstruck, shows 73-year old Ronnie Leach, who has suffered from a lifelong fear of flying, talking shortly after his first ever flight.

In the video Ronnie explains how, having never stepped on a plane before in his life, he was able to face his fears and fly from Johannesburg to Heathrow on a British Airways A380 super jumbo to visit his daughter who lives in London – with a little help from the airline’s Flying with Confidence course for nervous flyers.


Starstruck CEO Adrian Dicksons said: 'We were keen to capture this fantastic story for the airline, which we filmed at London's Heathrow airport. It was great to see Ronnie's new-found confidence so he could be together with his daughter, 8,000 miles from home!'
