The British Are Coming ... For Jackson

7/5/2009 1:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Michael JacksonThere are reports as many as a million people may come to L.A. for the Michael Jackson memorial on Tuesday. We can tell you for sure -- there's a British invasion.

A rep from British Airways tells us there has been a "huge influx" of reservations in the last few days by people from England trying to make their way to the memorial. The rep says people are "flying as close to L.A. as they can and then taking connecting flights."

In addition to non-stop and direct flights to L.A., flights from Heathrow to San Francisco and from Heathrow to Denver are almost full.

The rep says they expect all flights -- direct and indirect -- to be sold out by the end of the day.

It is a mistake to have something like this at such a small place. But then AEG is the owner. Money to be made and media attention. The stadium would have been too small. What makes anyone think that a celebration for Michael Jackson will bring in less than President Obama or Sarah Palin?? Think ahead folks...think!!

No insurance company paid anybody. It does not take a rocket t science to know that an Insurance company is subject to regulations and if could not pay anyone unless there is proof that it was done, which would have been a conviction. SHAME ON YOU FOR YOUR LIES.

Hallo    

I think LA should be happy to have visitors. They should open their hands and be happy again michael comes to the rescure. Whenever you have visitiors in your city to tend to make money and thats is what LA needs. People coming there are bringing money to spend and who comes to LA and don't shop most people do. Just wait and see how much money is going to be made in the name of one person Michael Jackson I love you may you rest in peace.
