It’s been a huge year for The Points Guy U.K. on YouTube. In the space of 12 months, we have amassed 227,200 subscribers, 27.4 million views, 354 years of video watch time and over half a billion (528,168,160) impressions.

To celebrate this success and the anniversary of the first viral British Airways four-class video (now hitting 6.6 million views alone!), we took to our YouTube community to find out all of their burning questions. We created this video with the TPG U.K. YouTube team to give the answers and take a retrospective look on how the channel went viral, including lots of unseen, behind-the-scenes footage.
