I believe the 742 that was flying the route has already been repainted in BA's standard color scheme. I think the aircrafts registration is G-BDXB.

The route already has been replaced with a 777. The 742 that was on the route is now the only, and will be the only, 747-236 in the Union Flag colours. It also carries additional "Dreamland" titles, as this plane brought sick children to Disney World in Florida.

Has the 777 be painted in Nigeria Airways colors, or is it still flying around in BA colors?

I've heard that BA may drop Lagos because of the cost of operating there. They will continue, and possibly upgrade the Abuja route, but Lagos is proving difficult politically. There is a row brewing between the Nigerian government and the UK authorities about this. Remember that the route has only recently got off the ground after a ban by the UK on Nigerian aircraft because of issues surrounding maintenance.
