In honor of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's big wedding day, British Airways is bringing the royal treatment to passengers on Saturday. The airline will operate a royal wedding-themed flight from London Heathrow Airport (LHR) to Toronto Airport (YYZ).

In addition to specialty food, drinks and entertainment centered around the nuptials, the flight's crew will be staffed exclusively by employees named Harry and Meghan. Two Harrys, seven Megans and one Meghan will staff the cabin of the Boeing 787, with Senior First Officer Harry Blake at the plane's controls next to the captain.

The crew will take special precautions to avoid any mid-air mixups among all the multiple names.

“I’ve flown with another Megan once or twice before, but never seven so we might have to all call each other by our surnames during this very special flight,” BA Customer Service Manager Megan Horsley, who will lead the flight's crew, said.

Flight number BA 93 is scheduled to depart Heathrow for Toronto (YYZ) at 1:10pm local time, an hour after Prince Harry and Meghan Markle say "I do" at Windsor Castle, which is just seven miles from LHR.

Every passenger on board BA 93 will receive a personal bottle of Castelnau Blanc du Blanc champagne to toast the royal newlyweds. As far as IFE, BA passengers flying throughout May can catch up on episodes of Markle’s series, “Suits,” as well as documentaries on the royal couple and listen to a podcasts about how Harry and Megan met.

In fact, any travelers who miss the royal wedding on TV will be able to catch up on board the next day, because the wedding highlights will be available on long-haul flights starting Sunday.

But you don't have to be on the BA 93 flight to enjoy some of the royal wedding-themed perks. On Saturday, British Airways is granting any passenger named Harry, Meghan or Megan (and their travel companions) access to its First lounge in Terminal 5 of LHR. And passengers departing LHR on Saturday will be served a mock-up of the royal wedding cake: a lemon and elderflower Victorian sponge cake -- the same flavor of Harry and Meghan's wedding cake.
