Before 1974, there were two companies in UK: the British Overseas Airways Corporation and the British European Airways Corporation which shared the civil aviation market. In 1974, the government formed the British airways to control the activities of the two companies.
In 1976, with Air France, British Airways inaugurates the firstsupersonic trip with the Concorde on a London-Bahrain trip. The first trip to USA has gone to Washington in 1977. The last route was done in 2003 because of a crash in Paris in 2000.
In 1981, the company was privatized and floated in 1987 on the London Stock Exchange.
Since 1984, an intense fight between BA and Virgin Atlantic Airways concluded on a £610,000 penalty for BA due to a dirty campaignagainst Virgin Atlantic.
In September 1998, with American Airlines, Cathay Pacific Airways and Qantas, British Airways created OneWorld, an alliance between those airlines.
In January 2008, BA open a new subsidiary, OpenSkies, a 100% business class airline between London or Paris and New York or Washington.

The company has adapted their schedules in order to let French businessmen do a one-day trip, they are able to go to London, just for a meeting and come back the evening. There is one morning flight and one evening return.

From RoissyCharles de Gaulle, British Airways propose nine flights to Heathrow all day long, on the schedules where the traffic reaches a peak. Moreover, flights are programed for passengers to let them have a correspondence to the British Airways’ world destination.

There are also three connections between Toulouse and London. The idea is the same as a Trip from Orly. Passengers are able to go to London withthe 7.35 a.m flight from Toulouse, arriving at 8.35 a.m. They can come back with the evening flight which arrives in Toulouse at 9.30 p.m by the last plane.
