I think you've misinterpreted the commercial, they're telling people not to travel during the Olympics, to stay home and support their athletes.

It's just a corporate PR strategy, taking place during a time when their bookings will be at an all time high.

They certainly would not hide a terror alert in an advert that a lot of the 65 million people in Britain wont see. I only knew about this advert because i saw it here on ATS, i watch very little TV

Advertizing that hurts them...
Like you said you will just take easyjet.

This advert alone is not that strange but add it to all the other Olympic stuff such as the ZION logo, sheep in the opening ceremony, illumanati pyramids surrounding the stadium and all the stuff Rick Clay talked about certainly is making the Olympics look very ominous to me.

Right....just to show I'm not going mad but made a wee mistake... is the vid link to the *closing* ceremony in Beijing where the bus falls apart at about 10 minutes in. Ok, so I'm sensitive, but it freaked me out then, and looking at it now, I think it's kind of insensitive at best.

Also, thinking about the zombie line in the Clash song used in the airline ad, at about 9 minutes in the Beijing all the zombies trying to get on the's too funny!

I don't believe at all in coincidence, but there is something just nae quite right....I'm just seeing bits of it so help me out here.

Just to throw it "in there" The livery on British Airways aeroplane reminds more off "The phoniex rising" from the asses, Rather than a peace dove.
After Londons supposed burning. (Yes that song again ) We all know London would be under 10ft off water if the weir gives out due to structeral damage (Terrorist ?) In that part off the capital thats where all the main banking companys are situated.

And with the news on tonight about Britains main bankers being credit down rated, Jeez trouble a head me thinks..

Clearly it is telling all of you that everyone should go to The Olympics so that they can gas the whole lot of you in the dome.

I seriously think you have far to much of a negative imagination.

Nice post, maybe.. Interesting angle by the advert! But to be honest I think your speculation here may be more damaging, giving Al Q'aeda scouts ideas and stuff. Alleging a conspiracy that creates paranoia in people for entertainment when it has no real validity other than a "hunch" IMO is far too beckoning of nasty paranoia that we just don't need in this day and age. London will be fine, the Olympics will be awesome. Millions of people will still fly BA. Advert will be relatively meaningless by the turn of the year, ATS thread will be completely forgotten by July.

I went on a course in Nottingham (middle England) last year. The Consultant Plastic Surgeon said that every Olympic Games has been associated with a terrorist action and that his Unit is preparing for burn victims to be sent up from London this year.

There are missiles being assembled in the Olympic area in prepararation for air attack much to the chagrin of the local residents who were not informed about this by the duplicitous English Prime Minister Conman

"The owner of a flats complex to be used as an army missile base during the London Olympics is facing a legal challenge over its decision to lease roof space to the military.

A resident of the Bow Quarter estate is challenging the legality of a deal between the company that owns the freehold and the Ministry of Defence to site a battery of surface-to-air missiles to guard against potential airborne terrorist attacks."

I just cannot for the life of me comprehend why an airline would advertise for people not to fly...

British Airways are a major blue chip company,they certainly have not shot themselves in the foot with this ad, do you really believe that people will cancel holidays, or not book them because of this advert?

Advertising is all about "brand awareness" and they have proved that it works!....people will be discussing this very "don't fly" tag line BA have used all over the internet, in homes and work places, and the brand they will be discussing is.....British Airways!

The Olympic games will come and go without issue in my opinion.

When the Olympics and the whole 2012 doomsday thing passes uneventfully, I can't wait for what the 2013 conspiracy season holds!

That's a bit bizarre, isn't it? Do they have a specialist burns unit there? Surely there would be something similar in London, unless there were a large number of burns victims..............and they had to be treated elsewhere. What about other hospitals with other specialities....I wonder what they have to prepare for. Did he give you any more information at all? 'Scuse the pun, but I'm burning with curiosity now.

S&F, now take a look at the disturbing lyrics of the tune that's been selected; fits in with a WW III initiating False Flag

London Calling (Strummer/Jones)

London calling to the faraway towns
Now that war is declared-and battle come down
London calling to the underworld
Come out of the cupboard, all you boys and girls
London calling, now don't look at us
All that phoney Beatlemania has bitten the dust
London calling, see we ain't got no swing
'Cept for the ring of that truncheon thing

The ice age is coming, the sun is zooming in
Engines stop running and the wheat is growing thin
A nuclear error, but I have no fear
London is drowning-and I live by the river

London calling to the imitation zone
Forget it, brother, an' go it alone
London calling upon the zombies of death
Quit holding out-and draw another breath
London calling-and I don't wanna shout
But when we were talking-I saw you nodding out
London calling, see we ain't got no highs
Except for that one with the yellowy eyes


Now get this
London calling, yeah, I was there, too
An' you know what they said? Well, some of it was true!
London calling at the top of the dial
After all this, won't you give me a smile?

I never felt so much a' like

Good GOD, Man!!
I am seriously disturbed now!

Makes me think of Morrissey:
"Armageddon, come Armageddon, come!"

People are reading into this too much. They just want to try and make some people delay their holidays until after the olympics. They know that people who plan holidays for the summer will already have booked them or planned them so they are trying to capitalise on joining in with the whole Team GB thing and also trying to increase sales after the summer period which is when sales usually are slowing down, BA have had problems with slow sales in parts of the year apart from summer which has remained busy for them.

It doesn't matter how much they say don't fly, who really would let this effect their decision to go on holiday? Nobody that's who! They are just making it seem that they are putting the good of the country before their own business which they know is rubbish as people will still go ahead with their holidays and for them hopefully it will push sales up slightly after the busy summer period for people who decide to now go on holiday after the olympics.

IMO it is also a go at getting people who planned on staying in the UK for the year and not having a holiday as the olympics were coming to book one after the olympics and still have a holiday like normal as some people may have decided to miss out their summer holiday anyway. I think it's pretty mad that this is being linked to a false flag or WW III. Even if it was just plain stupid business sense plenty of businesses try new and radical ideas believing it will work some psychological wonder like in this case maybe increasing sales for a different quarter as they know nobody in their right mind will miss a holiday because BA tells them to not fly. Then will probably go on the news and rant about how much they care about Britain now, even above their own sales

posted on Jun, 21 2012 @ 06:45 PM
Possibly BA trying to use reverse-psychology on the viewers?

Just trying to figure out why exactly they'd want this message to be put out like this.

Honestly, I reckon they're just trying to get the people to get behind the country when we start hosting the Games.

Though I'm (even more) cuious about what'll go down after it bbegins.

"The Ministry of Defence is considering placing surface-to-air missiles on residential flats during the Olympics."
Seems fitting huh..

As Jakius Fogg says:

"British Airways is NOT a holiday airline. it's market is primarily business schedule routes, and long haul."

I think that a lot of businessmen/women, who would normally fly with BA, are probably staying at home during the Olympics and will use the Games as corporate entertainment events, for their foreign business partners, who would more than likely book their flights to London with BA. That in itself has probably given them more ticket sales than usual.

As to the song used - not that many people ( unless they're Clash fans or ex-punks) would know all the lyrics and the one's used in the adverts aren't all clearly heard - but this is how I see ( well, hear ) what's meant:

" London calling to the faraway towns " The host town/Country of the Olympics, calling out to all the other Countries

" Now that war is declared-and battle come down " The war is the Olympic Games themselves and "battle come down" is the battle of the athletes.

" but I have no fear " The British have no fear of the other athletes. We're just as good.

"I live by the river " Puts an image in mind of the River Thames, to reinforce the London, host city connection.
