British Airways gives tribute to Freddie Mercury at London Heathrow Airport

Freddie Murcury Flash dance at Heathrow Airport

Don’t stop me now! I’m a shooting star leaping through the sky! ✈️

British Airways honour Freddie Mercury in a flash dance tribute at Heathrow Airport.

Choreographed by the mind behind Strictly Come Dancing and ITV’s X Factor, Lyndon Lloyd, Heathrow’s Terminal 5 Baggage Handlers lept into action with “I want to break free”.

It was all to celebrate what would have been Mercury’s 72nd birthday on the 5th of September, 2018.

The dance comes a month before the major blockbuster, Bohemian Rhapsody, comes to cinemas – a film about Mercury’s life, music and identity with Rami Malek.

Sporting high-vis Freddie-style jackets and jazz-hands, there was no stopping the Baggage Team from prancing around the airport to hoards of Queen fans and International travellers.

Here’s the BA team doing their Flash-(ah-ha)-mob:

What makes a Freddie Flash Mob at Heathrow significant?

It’s not commonly known, but the Queen icon worked as a baggage handler at Heathrow before his big career in music. In the 1960s, your suitcases could have been managed by none other than the musical legend, Freddie Mercury, himself!

British Airways also celebrated by giving free entry to any customer called Freddie, Frederick or Farrokhcan to their first class airport lounge in Terminal 5. There’s no free passes for plus-ones sadly, and you needed to show your ID at the door to get your free entry.

Happy Travelling, and may the show go on. 🎶
