The dedicated flight (BA9230c) took place yesterday (Saturday March 12), flying over the UK for two and a half hours, with comedians Dara O Briain, Jack Whitehall and Jon Richardson performing at 35,000 feet for 45 minutes.

There were a total of 180 guests and prize winners on board, and the gig has so far raised almost £100,000 for Red Nose Day.

Among the jokes were Whitehall’s quip: “I was looking forward to today - after all it’s the only gig where people can’t walk out. If you want to heckle you’ll have to press the call button.”

BA has raised a total of over £700,000 for Comic Relief since its partnership began in June 2010. This year’s Red Nose Day takes place on Friday March 18.

Coverage of the record-breaking gig will be posted at youtube.com/britishairways, and BA has also painted seevral of its aircraft with red noses to mark this year’s event.
