AND FINALLY: Flowers for the wife

At last week’s Aviation Club lunch Keith Williams, CEO of British Airways, introduced himself by noting that people are confused about roles within the new structure.

“The easiest explanation of my move is that I came from the second most important job in the airline and went into the second most important job in the airline!”

He also said that he was very honoured to accompany the Duchess of Cambridge for a medal ceremony during the 2012 Paralympic Games at Stratford.  

He presented the flowers.  Wife Lynn was not amused.

“Perhaps you might bring some back for me next time”, was her comment.
