The airline has partnered with Hotel Chocolat to offer customers a hot chocolate winter warmer in its Concorde Room, or a festive chocolate cream cocktail in its First lounge. The airline has also commissioned a British Original artist to create a winter wonderland for customers on the walkway between its main lounges in Heathrow Terminal 5. The masterpiece will be carefully painted using ‘snow graffiti’ and feature a British skyline scene with snowy décor. The art will be created live across the first two days of December for customers to watch.
