Sir Mick Jagger and singer/songwriter Rufus Wainwright have shared their playlists with British Airways bosses as part of a new inflight programme that will allow fans to listen to their favourite tracks as they fly.

Kicking off the new initiative in March (14), Jagger will introduce passengers to artists like Malian singer Salif Keita and late Nigerian star Fela Kuti, while Wainwright will offer up songs by Angelique Kidjo and The Gloaming in April (14).

Oscar-winning Slumdog Millionaire composer A.R. Rahman, Brian Eno, Jamie Cullum and Steve Martin have also been approached by British Airways bosses and asked to create playlists of their favourite tunes.
