Vodafone gives Dutch pensioners first taste of flying with 'nans on a plane' film

"You won't get me in there," says Dutch grandma An, as she prepares to take her first ever flight. "Not even for money."

A charming film shows two Dutch pensioners, An and Ria, who have never previously flown bonding as they fly in a private jet from Amsterdam to Barcelona.

Vodafone chartered a private jet for the campaign and took the two grannies on a rollercoaster to prepare them for the flight as part of the telecoms company’s ‘Firsts’ programme.
