High-flying romantics could enjoy the ultimate Valentines dinner date, courtesy of British Airways, on board Concorde.
The airline is inviting couples to bid in a charity auction for the chance to be wined and dined on board Concorde, the world’s most iconic aircraft – without even leaving the ground.
The couple will receive red carpet treatment from the steps of Concorde to their very exclusive table for two in the main cabin. Surrounded by fairy lights and flower petals they will be served a three-course dinner, created by a top chef, with a bottle of champagne to celebrate Valentines Day – and maybe even a marriage proposal!
All proceeds from the Concorde auction will go to Flying Start, British Airways’ global charity partnership with Comic Relief whose aim is to raise money to help children living incredibly tough lives in the UK and around the world.
The auction was launched this week by Cheshire toastmaster Ian Parrott, who actually flew to New York on Concorde twice during a previous career.
He said: “Concorde has always offered the ultimate in romance, you don’t have to fly anywhere to appreciate the very intimate and luxurious surroundings of this beautiful aircraft. To have it all to yourself for one evening is possibly the most romantic gesture you can make”.
Anyone is welcome to bid for the ultimate Valentine dinner on Concorde in the e-mail auction.
They need to send an e-mail by clicking here stating how much they would be prepared to pay for the prize and giving their name and contact details.

The Concorde auction closes on Sunday, 12th February at midnight and the winner will be notified on Monday 13th February.
