Hi All

Am having a long running argument with the wife about who does the voice over to the above advert. I think its Jack Davenport, she thinks I'm wrong (as usual, lol). Can anyone shed any light on this, have searched all over the net!

Cheers

Ian

tayl, if you type "british airways" then "jack davenport" into your search engine you will discover lots of hits saying BR had hired Jack for their new ad.

But I can see why your wife was doubtful. I think he's flattened his vowels (to sound more working class?) and his excellent speaking voice is, IMHO, not much in evidence. If I hadn't seen the press articles I certainly wouldn't have bet my house on it being Jack.
