Every year, amazing things happen when millions of people travel across the Atlantic with British Airways

Something amazing happened on my trip…

As well as broadening the mind, travel can transform lives – we want to hear your stories of life-changing trips

When Chloe Read and husband Jim took their first business trip from London to New York five years ago, they hoped those meetings might take their clock-making business stateside...

“That trip changed things. We met the right people, made contacts, got new ideas,” says Chloe. Now, Newgate Clocks are sold in more than 1,000 stores across America. “It’s crazy that Newgate is global now, particularly as we started out in our one-bed Shropshire flat.”

They aren’t the only ones. Every year, 40 million people travel all over the world with British Airways. And when they do, incredible things happen: from marriage proposals to new business ventures, meeting long lost family members or attempting sporting challenges. It’s the things that happen when we travel that make life more extraordinary.

So this July, we want to hear about the amazing things that have happened to you on your travels.

From 12-25 July 2016, we are inviting Club Members flying in that period to join us in the BA Pod at Terminal 5’s Club South and the BA lounge in JFK to share your stories.

Whether it’s embarking on a different career, discovering a new passion or meeting the love of your life, we’d like to hear how travelling around the world has made a difference to you.

Join us for a five-minute interview and your story could be shared through BA’s social media channels and on ba.com. Everyone who participates will receive a £10 High Life shop voucher.

This offer is open to all Club members with access to Club South, Terminal 5 and JFK from 12-25 July 2016
