Orlando Bloom flies into Sydney

British Airways ambassador arrives to promote new service

Orlando BloomThe actor has recently been in Cannes, poor lad, where his latest film, Zulu, closed the annual cinematic jamboree. “With it just having been shown it’s now a matter of working on when it will open around the world” he commented.

Just like home only better..

Happy as he was to plug his latest film, this particular media appearance was more about the actor promoting British Airways and, in particular, both the new 777-300 being used on the route and new First class cabin of which Mr Bloom is clearly very familiar. “In my mind, there is no better First that British Airways’ First. I’ve made a long journey to be with you today, having just flown in from Cannes, and enjoying breakfast in the Concorde Lounge – a delicious breakfast, and even better for the fact that you don’t need to pay at the end.”

As previously reported, the only slight pickle for Orlando Bloom is that the true love of his life, Miranda Kerr, is brand ambassador for Qantas. Quite how the couple, together with baby son Flynn, decide which airline to fly with when travelling together has not yet been divulged. Is there a Hollywood version of ‘Paper-Scissors-Rock’?
