The oldest passenger aboard was great-grandmother Eileen Gower, from Sevenoaks, Kent. She was accompanied by her banker son, Gary, 42, who was selected by the airline from thousands who had taken up the airline's offer to bid for tickets on eBay.
The unique bidding process has raised more than £600,000 for charity. Julian Hayward, 38, from UK paid £50,000 to be in one of the luxurious first-class suites on this first flight. Link
