British Airways gives out free waistcoats to passengers flying to Moscow

You might have noticed that Gareth Southgate wears a waistcoat

Marks and Spencer have apparently sold out of them, and every daytime TV presenter seemed to be wearing one today.

For the lucky England fans flying out to Moscow this morning, British Airways had a special surprise for them.

Passengers arriving for ‘ChecK-ane’ on the 8.45am were offered a waistcoat.  But that’s not all. There was face-painting, and free England flags.

Not only that, but on their boarding passes, every customer’s name was changed to “Football” and their destination as “Home”.

The plane was also decked out with patriotic bunting.

Even Leon Britton was impressed.
