Wanna Go To London?

Bloody brilliant. The first-ever non-stop flight between NOLA and Europe takes off.

Big Ben...is that you?

Over the weekend you may have noticed six 900 lb. red sculptures depicting iconic British landmarks installed around our city in celebration of British Airways' new non-stop flight between New Orleans and London launching NEXT Monday, March 27. See if you can spot all six: a sculpture of Big Ben in Lafayette Square, London’s Tower Bridge in Jackson Square, a Royal Guardsman at the Contemporary Art Center, a bagpiper in front of the Steamboat Natchez, the Queen at the Carousel Gardens in City Park (pictured) and a Union Jack at the airport. Locals can try to win two free round-trip tickets on the new flight and a four-night stay in the UK. Here's how: Snap a selfie with a sculpture and post it to social media with the hashtag #BAlovesNOLA before April 3.

London's calling.
