BA Livery News (Part Two) Any Updates?

Hi all,

This topic is archived so wondered if there are any further updates on BMI to BA repaint and interior configs and also any updates on aircraft that have or are due to have crest applied?

Have any more long haul had crest applied as mainly appears to be short haul aircraft so far?

I've seen G-DBCA, F and K fly over work in BMI livery recently. Has G-MIDT returned to LHR in BA livery or not?

This topic was part one.

Any updates would be appreciated.

Cheers bluesky73

I believe A320 G-MIDY is also currently being repainted into BA livery. Can anyone confirm?

The tally so far should be:

A318: 0/2
A319: 12/44 - G-DBCC/E/G/H/I/J, G-EUPB/C/E/J/K/M
A320: 3/46 - G-EUUA, G-MIDS/T
A321: 2/18 - G-MEDM/N
B734: 5/19 - G-DOCB/E/O/Y, G-GBTA
B744: 2/52 - G-BNLU/Z
B763: 0/21
B772: 0/46
B773: 0/6

So a long way to go! Any updates welcome

Yesterday 744 G-BNLG operated the twenty-sixth annual 'Dreamflight'. As it is described here:

http://www.dreamflight.org/charity-e...night-and-it-was-party-party-party

as "the special 'Dreamflight' 747 aircraft" I take it that, as in previous years, the aircraft carries "Dreamflight" titles.

This is the second time 'LG has operated the "Dreamflight" the first time having been in 2007:

The "Dreamflight" aircraft I can identify all with multicollour "Dreamflight" titles unless otherwise stated are:

1987: ?
1992: G-AWNE
1996: G-AWNN ("Dreamflight 10" (?) titles)
1997: G-AWNA
2000: G-BDXB
2001: G-CIVX
2002: G-BNLU
2003: G-BNLA
2004: G-CIVT (Maroon "Dreamflight" titles)
2005: G-BNLS
2006: G-BNLJ (Multicolour "Dreamflight 20" titles)
2007: G-BNLG
2008: G-BNLM
2009: G-BNLS (Titles worn through to after 2010 flight)
2010: G-BNLS
2011: G-BNLU (Blue and red "Dreamflight 25" titles and with Crest)
2012: G-BNLJ (Additional titles?)

Can anyone fill in any of the gaps?

G-MIDY is in fact still in bmi livery. I believe it's actually A319 G-DBCF that is currently being repainted. Still waiting for confirmation.

Quoting TCX69K (Reply 6):

i think the confusion about 'DY is that it has been operating under the BA AOC since 22 August and was registered to BA on 10 October even though it remains in BD livery

Quoting TCX69K (Reply 6):

'CF last flew on 9 October when it was temporarily withdrawn from use at LHR. As maintenance on BA's Airbus aircraft is carried out at GLA, it is certainly probable that it is in the BA LHR Paint Shop. If it is it could be out today or tomorrow.

Thanks for the link. The main lower case, multicolour "dreamflight" titles are entirely different to all of those I've seen before.

Most years they have been multicolour large and small caps:

with exceptions in notable anniversary years:

and a single year with maroon-only titles:

The multicolour large and small caps style dates back to the old BA Landor livery (and possibly to the first "Dreamflight" back in 1987) as can be seen in the departure segment of the video here:

G-MIDO & G-MIDX will both be ferried from their respective LH Wetlease bases of BHX/MAN to LHR on 28Oct & will then, after cabin modifications, join the BA fleet. I would think G-MIDX will be high up the priority list to be repainted as it still wears Star Alliance livery & I'd expect it to be repainted before it even flies for BA.

Quote:

Indeed as BA174 has mentioned it will be joining the BA fleet. It will go to SOF after the end of the LH Wetlease for some much needed MX. It will then return & join the BA fleet & be repainted in due course.

So with G-DBCA, G-MIDO and G-MIDX all joining the BA fleet at LHR (ex LH leases) plus G-MEDH and G-MEDK being converted from midhaul to shorthail layouts, BA will gain 5 extra shorthaul Airbuses at LHR over what has been used this Summer on the BA/BD flights.

Early delivery BA 320s are leased.

G-EUUA to 'UC are owned by Orix.

'UD and 'UE are leased (but from whom?).

'UF is owned by Somerset Aviation Services.

'UG is leased to BA by Itoh.

It has been suggested that at least some of these aircraft may be returned to their lessors in the near future..

On the other side of the coin BA will need to surrender 15 daily slot pairs at the start of Summer Season 2013 as a condeition of approval of the BD purchase. While most of these slots are short short-haul operations, two pairs are LHR-DME. So their transfer will free up the equivalent of a total of at least four more aircraft.

Additionally eight new 320s to be registered G-EUYO to 'YW will b e delivered between June of next year and June 2014.

So its a pretty fluid situation.

99 TimRees : Saw G-DBCA fly over this weekend and out of interest the undersurface of the elevators are still bright red.
100 bluesky73 : Seems strange they would not fully paint CA into full BA livery including elevators? This was also painted at LHR. G-MIDY on way back from MAD to UK n
101 FI642 : This would be something interesting to incorporate into the BA livery.
102 tcx69k : A320 G-MEDK arrived back from MAD this afternoon after being repainted into BA livery. The ex-bmi fleet livery status is now as follows: A319: G-DBCA
103 BA174 : As G-MEDK is a BA spec aircraft I presume it will op ex T5/3 instead of T1? Why is MEDH going? I would have thought the BA spec aircraft would be top
104 tcx69k : G-MEDK isn't really a BA spec aircraft & in fact there is very little difference between the bmi & BA A320's. G-MEDK will have the same cabin
105 BA174 : G-MEDK has BA spec galleys along with all other ex-BMED aircraft which were originally ordered by BA before being allocated to BMED. Apart from seatin
106 bluesky73 : Not many left now in BMI livery, does anyone know which of the A32x is next to go into the paint shop? They have used Madrid for last two repaints, do
107 777way : So the new BA logo and title that appeared on an ad in faceboook is not happening?
108 TimRees : Is it a major modification to convert an Airbus from bulk loading to container loading and why did BMI opt for bulk loading in the first place out of
109 tcx69k : It'll be an A321 as that's all that's left to be repainted. G-MEDL is the next I believe. bmi only opted for bulk loading on the A319, to speed up th
110 skipness1E : The "new" BA Logo on Facebook appeared to be just a bad rendering of the current one!
111 Post contains links and images tcx69k : Indeed they are! Just like the winglets on G-MEDM are also still red.
112 TimRees : Excuse my ignorance but is it not quicker to load the luggage into containers and put them into the hold in one go as it were rather than loading the
113 rutankrd : No its not at many/most airports.
114 777way : But it also carried loweecase font new BA title as well, and some one here said its being used on some stuff at LHR.
115 skipness1E : Mate, someone saw it on a bus. It's not a rebranding, trust me. It's not happening. Sorry can you link to this and explain what you mean? There are a
116 bluesky73 : Thanks tcx69k for posting pics of G-DBCA and MEDM. Would this not be noticed by the paint teams, CA was painted at LHR so should have been repainted t

122 skipness1E : ..........do tell. When G-BIKG was resprayed in the 90s, the Landor fin logo was painted at an uphill angle. It just looked wrong! Perhaps you had to
