as if an Olympic medal was not enough

WOW! As if winning an Olympic Medal wasn't the icing on the "Olympic cake", so to speak, the Great Britain Olympic Team all get to fly home on a BA flight, eat a first class meal with extra champagne on ice (guess they will get more than the complimentary one glass of bubbly), and choose from an onboard menu that includes steak and mushroom pie with parsley mash, fillet of beef with lyonnaise potatoes or baked cod with a herb and lobster sauce. Hmmm...I think I've had that before...sadly.

But wait...there's more! British Air is giving gold medallists Gold Executive Club membership and silver and bronze medal-winners Silver Executive Club membership, valid until 2012. Ah...well then.

I am sure that will rate right up there with the victory parade through the streets of London set for October 16th...
