Talk about in-flight entertainment: Passengers on board a British Airways flight to Moscow got a show when they were surprised by the Bolshoi Ballet and singer Katherine Jenkins.

As Jenkins belted out “Somewhere Over the Rainbow,” two dancers made their way down the aisle of what looks to be the Club World cabin for a performance at 41,000 feet.

BA invited Jenkins and the Bolshoi Ballet to celebrate the launch of the airline's Dreamliner service from London Heathrow (LHR) to Moscow (DME) on November 1, 2016. Watch the surprise performance below:

BA currently has 14 787-9 Dreamliners in its fleet, with routes between London Heathrow and cities such as Austin, Boston, Dubai, Tokyo Narita and now Moscow. The carrier operates the Moscow flight weekly, with plans to increase to twice-weekly service in January 2017.

The 787-9 has eight first-class suites, 42 lie-flat seats in the Club World cabin, 39 recliner seats in the World Traveller Plus cabin and 127 seats in the World Traveller cabin. If only every flight had a live musical performance...

Do you have any flights booked on BA’s Dreamliner?
