Their five minutes of fame isn’t up yet! The 3 girls who were lucky enough to have an entire British Airways plane to themselves back in December were back at Heathrow last week filming recreation scenes for an upcoming special on UK broadcaster ITV. No word on the air date , but the girls got to enjoy some lounge time and “relive” the entire experience.

Back in December, the three girls were on their way to Heathrow when they were informed that their flight to Gibraltar had been delayed. They decided to arrive at the airport timed for the updated departure, but found out that everyone else had waited it out at the airport and was squeezed on an earlier flight. The girls, who paid only £80, were upgraded to Business Class and had the entire flight to themselves. The story caught international attention with all of their social media postings.

Looks like they were flying Gibraltar to London, not the other way round (which to be fair does make an empty plane more plausable if it was the last flight of the day, but still, this does have a slight hint of PR stunt to it!).
