Why did this happened? Why with the name of the 70´s pop group?

Don´t think so...since they disappear as a group a long time ago, but even if they did...why the change? Is it that easy to change a reg number?

I'm pretty sure it CANNOT be a real registration... surely having the "B" the wrong way round would be illegal!

N777AS (cn 29271/174) Take a look to the FAKE Registration D-ABBA (Backwords B).

I believe the photographer clearly highlights that this is a fake registration.

The day they do that is the day when easyJet become a full service airline, flying out of LHR with A380's.
