British Airways Paws And Relax

 has exhausted every last cat and dog pun to launch its latest in-flight entertainment program, which will use man’s best friends in the aim of getting passengers to “paws and relax.”

That’s the name of the airline’s latest in-flight channel, which will become available on long-haul flights beginning in September.



“Paws and Relax TV came when we were doing some research into different types of content that will help our customers to relax and enjoy their flight,” said Richard D’Cruze in the YouTube video below.

“And we discovered some scientific research that proves watching images of cute animals can actually lower your heart rate and reduce stress levels.”

The line-up includes shows like the animated “Simon’s Cat,” “Secret Life of Cats” and “America’s Cutest Dog.”
