In 1987 British Airways moved its United States corporate offices to the Bulova Corporate Center, a converted watch factory in the Jackson Heights/East Elmhurst area. In 1999 British Airways said it would close its headquarters in the watch factory and move to a new headquarters building in a location in the New York City area by 2002, when the airline's lease would run out. By 2001 the airline said it would keep of office space in the watch building, but that its telephone operations would move to Jacksonville, Florida. As of 2008 British Airways maintains offices in the Bulova building. In 2006, India's ban of the export of lentils caused a price crisis in the neighborhood.
