AND FINALLY: BOAC 747 suitcases auctioned

To mark the retirement of its 747 fleet, British Airways and luxury travel brand Globe-Trotter have teamed up to create a limited-edition range of handmade carry-on suitcases which celebrate the spirit of the jumbo jet age.

To officially launch the range, two of these stunning suitcases are being auctioned via online auction platform ‘bid in’ to raise funds for Flying Start, British Airways’ global charity partnership with Comic Relief.

Since the partnership began in 2010, British Airways has raised over £25m for the charity through Flying Start, reaching more than 824,000 people.

With bids starting at £2,000 per item, the BOAC Speedbird suitcases are set to become an instant collectors’ item.

The BOAC Speedbird Carry-On Suitcase retails at £1,935 and are available at Suitcase Carry-on
