The Show Must Go On: Heathrow Airport celebrated Freddie Mercury Day on September 5, 2018

Terminal 5 at Heathrow Airport celebrated Freddie Mercury Day, on September 5, 2018, in spectacular fashion, on the occasion of the rock legend’s birthday and the upcoming release of the film, ‘Bohemian Rhapsody.’ Freddie Mercury handled the heights of rock stardom as the lead singer of Queen, but few are aware of his days as a baggage handler at Heathrow Airport.
           Following weeks of rehearsals, the baggage handlers at Terminal 5 arrivals astonished passengers with their Mercury-inspired dance moves.  Freddie worked at the airport nearly 50 years ago, shortly before joining Queen and packing arenas around the world.
         Any traveller going by the name of Freddie, Frederick or the legend’s real name, Farrokh, departing from Terminal 5, was invited along with their travelling companions to use British Airways’ First lounge, accessed through the exclusive First Wing. The celebrations are in anticipation of the cinema release of Bohemian Rhapsody, a foot-stomping tribute to Queen, their music and their extraordinary lead singer.
