Orlando Bloom enjoys his ride onboard British Airways from Australia

In his final few hours in Australia, obviously living a Travelife, international superstar Orlando Bloom enjoyed a lively reception on-board a British Airways Boeing 777-300 aircraft.

Orlando, who is also a British Airways global ambassador,  said goodbye to one of his favourite places in the world and made time to explore the cockpit of the plane.

Orlando said: “As a kid I remember how excited I was when I got to meet the Captain of my first plane ride, which of course was a British Airways flight.”

He added: “I remember being mesmerized by the cockpit and controls.”


As a seasoned traveller, the Hollywood superstar also shared his travel tips.

Orlando said: “My job takes me all over the world and consequently, I spend a lot of time travelling. If it weren't for the premium service on British Airways, on which I've travelled since I was a kid, my travel time would be far more taxing."


On jetlag, he added: “Jet lag can be tough to deal with but I find the best thing to do is to avoid alcohol, drink lots of water, and adjust your sleep to the time zone you're entering. I also like to get in the gym when I arrive at my destination as I find that helps to combat jet lag."

He also said: “I like to be comfortable when I fly so I generally travel in a t-shirt and jeans. When I'm traveling with my son, I make sure to bring books and games so we can play until he falls asleep."  I love to read a good book, watch a film, or catch up on emails and sleep.

On the food, he had this to say: "When it comes to meals, there's always a fantastic menu to choose from on British Airways."

Nicole Backo, regional commercial manager of British Airways for South West Pacific, said: “We had a wonderful time with Orlando today and it was a pleasure having him on board.
