British Airways

In common with many airlines and travel companies in the UK, we offer services intended to make the booking of holiday experiences more convenient for members of the public who wish to visit SeaWorld attractions.

We offer similar arrangements in regard to theme parks and other places of interest at many destinations on our global network. Whether members of the public choose to make use of these arrangements is entirely up to them.

We note the concerns you have raised in relations to animal welfare. We feel sure you will be aware that regulation of animal welfare at SeaWorld is a matter for the relevant federal and state authorities in the US.

We have no reason not to have confidence in the expertise of these authorities in what is a highly specialised field far removed from the world of aviation.

    Embarrassment to the UK. We fought to rid the UK of captive tanks, yet you fly our citizens to someone else s tanks. Shame on you

    I can't believe BA is turning a blind eye to this. You fucking know what's going on, you just don't want to do anything about it.

    Too bad you don't know the truth, of how these animals are uncared for. Money talks when deaths and injuries are made invisible.

    All the sea mammals in $eaWorld are forced to perform for food, that's slavery in my books.

    Surely some of you have your own pets at home; a dog, a cat, a guinea pig which have become loving members of your family. How can you go home to love, feed, attend to and wish no harm to your pet giving them the best life they could have when you're also promoting and selling trips to SeaWorld. Please look in to your hearts. This is wrong. It's so very wrong and we all need to help each other in the fight against a greedy animal exploiting company. The more help we have from the likes of yourselves, other well known companies and celebrities will not only diminish the power that SeaWorld have, but also help raise great awareness to the rest of the world. We CAN change the world, it just takes time. So please help change the way we treat and look at animals in captivity forever.
