Transcription

No spoken words until very end of this musical orchestrated narrative montage that tells the following story. A man leaves NY by plane; meanwhile a woman and her two children travel to Heathrow Airport from whence they depart. Both parties come together on the warm, sunny and apparently isolated beaches of a Caribbean Island. Throughout they are serenaded by the orchestral players and choral voices of British Airways.

At conclusion a male voiceover says: British Airways. The way to fly.
