British Airways: Smile High Gig sets new Guinness World Records title

British Airways has set a new Guinness World Records title for letting the comedians Dara O Briain, Jack Whitehall and Jon Richardson perform the "highest stand-up comedy gig in the world" in one of their airplanes while flying over the UK.

The smile high gig, which took place on Saturday, 12 March 2011, raised almost £100,000 for Red Nose Day, as part of the airline’s partnership with Comic Relief.
The comedians performed for 45 minutes at 35,000ft, to a crowd of 180 guests and prize winners, to set the new world record. The comedy gig was hosted on flight BA9230c, on a dedicated British Airways A321 aircraft from London Terminal 5, flying over the UK for two and a half hours.
