Hi aaronqwerty,

The theme song for British Airways is "The Flower Duet" From Lakme by Delibes.

"The Flower Duet by Léo Delibes is one of the most recognisable pieces
of classical music. Even though the Flower Duet is actually part of
the opera Lakmé, it is most widely known for being used in a British
Airways ad during the 1990's. Like so many other classical themes, the
Flower Duet has become part of the public conscience, by becoming the
British Airways signature tune."

Great Scores
