+ BA and others pull advertising after tsunami.
British Airways has pulled television and press adverts that include images of waves lapping on a beach in the wake of the Asian tsunami disaster.

The airline decided it was inappropriate to advertise holiday flights following the December 26 earthquake and tsunami, which is expected to have killed more than 150,000 people.

BA's television, press and poster advertising campaign was due to launch on December 30 and an embargoed press release was sent to travel journalists the previous day. But the airline has decided to abandon most of the campaign.

"Due to the situation in Asia we have pulled TV advertising and main newspaper advertising," a British Airways spokesman said.
