G-MEDH was in SOF for EOL MX from 29Jan-27Feb and then returned to LGW before being ferried to SNN.

I would love to their 747 with red nose, I think it will suit 747 better than 777.

It's also gone quiet on the crest front too, hardly any mention on TheBaSource the last two months- does anyone have an updated list please?

Thanks for the list VV701. Its interesting that the first two crests were applied in autumn 2011 then no more crests for 7 months. Were they not sure if to apply crest to whole fleet for a while i wonder? Then from May 12 the volume increased on average 4-5 a month through to December 2012.
Volume has decreased slightly since Dec 12 but I would say a lot of the crests last year were due to the BMI buses being repainted. Good list!

Actually we might count the seven Dwarves, no wait Doves in there as well. They all carry it as well :
G-EUPA / D / G / H
G-EUOH
G-DBCB / D
It splits as 50 (+7) BA
24 of which are BMI additions and 26(+7) are BA re-sprays.

It will a long wait for a need for a respray on the Embraers or the two A318s so I think that's all the new types we'll be seeing until the Screamliner arrives.

Quoting bluesky73 (Reply 28):

I think there are two reasons for this.

With a quite large ex-BD fleet to repaint BA sent three aircraft to the former BD paint shop at EMA in the summer and six to the IB paint shop at MAD during the autumn. This speeded things up. Then very recently the BA paint shop at LHR was used to paint an EC 752, slightly slowing the rate of painting BA aircraft.

It is difficult to know how frequently an aircraft needs to be repainted. Looking back ten or so years, BA used to repaint their short haul aircraft (that spend more hours flying through the weather than do the long haul types) about once every five years and their long haul aircraft every six or seven years or so. But today paint technology is more advanced and there is undoubtedly a longer interval between individual aircraft visiting the paint shop.

Nevertheless with the size of their current fleet and each paint job taking about a week we are looking at the possibility of 50 or so aircraft needing and being repainted each year. This makes repainting the fleet an almost continuous operation. And by this time next year there should be around 100 BA aircraft with the crest.

G-ZBJA should be rolled out at PAE in the next week or so. But we will have to wait a little longer to see it (hopefully) in the Crest livery.

Quoting skipness1E (Reply 29):

Yes. A lot longer. Unlikely before mid 2015 if at all. They are operated by BA CityFlyer. So, unlike BA's Main and Gatwick Fleets, they do not carry 'Royal Mail' titles and logo. Hence I wonder whether or not they will be repainted in the Crest livery when their time arrives?

There must also be some doubt about the two 318s. Certainly they carry the 'Royal Mail' titles / logo. But they were painted while they were being prepared for operation by British Airways plc and before they were transferred to British Airways (BA) Ltd. With the hop to SNN they get exposed to the weather a bit more than other BA long haul aircraft with three instead of two departures / arrivals in a typical working day. Nevertheless I do not think the first will need repainting until after the first of the E-Jets have visited the BA Paint Shop on probably what will be first visit to LHR (unless then experience a weather diversion which, at least to LHR, is most unlikely. (The only time the three original high Density 772's, G-VIIO, 'IP and 'IR based at LGW since they were delivered back in the spring of 1998 have been to LHR was to visit the BA Paint Shop).

There are also the Sun-Air's DO 328s and Comair's 733s. They might be repainted in the Crest livery when there time arrives. But again we will have to wait and see.

So after the 787 the next new type to carry the Crest will likely be the 77W in the guise of G-STBG when it is delivered in September

I think there are two reasons for this.

There's a third reason, closer inspection of the list shows that the LHR paintshop has worked on 6 x 772 & 1 x 744 in the first three months of this year, In the previous three months they sprayed 1 x 763, 4 x 319, 4 x 320 & 4 x 321. Same amount of paint, sprayed over fewer, larger airframes.

G-EUPC had the crest as part of the firefly scheme. That makes it the only plane to have worn it twice. Firstly in June when it rolled out in yellow, and then when re painted in November.

I think that the above may have been followed into the paint shop by 734 G-DOCL that was ferried in from LGW to LHR on 9 May.

G-EUUG appears to have entered the BA paint shop at LHR on or around 3 May. With G-EUUK having exited the same shop on 14 April there was time for two other aircraft, possibly 320s, to be repainted between 'UK and 'UG. Any sightings? Of course if this happened it would alter the above sequence numbers for 'UG.

Some of the L/H 767s will probably not receive crest, mainly I would imagine WN which is due to stand down end of next year and was last painted minus the tail and wings in 2011

I think what happened was WN was painted in Aug, Sep 2007 and rolled out in the evening.
Next day it was back in the paintshop getting stripped minus the tail and wings.
Seemingly when they weighed it after painting it was over its normal weight.
Fast forward to somewhere in 2011 the whole fuselage was painted again minus the tail but this time included the
engines and wings ? The tail was manually patched up about a year ago by roller but I really dont have the answer
as to why this aircraft has had so many paint jobs..I do know that the bellys have a lot of bare metal
mainly due to the amount of skydrol that streaks along them.
Also on another note (can anyone clarify) ? That the ex Bcal 320s had a problem with paint as there was a reaction
problem, again probably most due to the amount of skydrol leaking from them.

The thing I like about the liery is not only does it show that the member airline belongs to Oneworld, it also keeps the ironies own corporate identity. It's bold, easy to spot, and is simple.

How is that cheap and tacky?

So that is the 7th 734 to be repainted and given the crest? I'm surprised so many 734 have been repainted with crest, when long haul fleet, especially 777 and 763 have so few crests.
I know many 763 will leave fleet in next couple of years but thought 734 fleet would reduce from next year too. Maybe these 7 734 will be last to leave fleet?

One question I do have is are crests applied during full repaint or have some aircraft just had new fuselage titles moved and crest added?

They are only applied during full repaint, and the grey they use is the same grey that is used for the door surrounds.

If history is anything to go by the repainting of a BA aircraft does not necessarily indicate that it will not be retired in the shorter term. This is illustrated by A320 G-BUSF:

'UF was returned to service after being repainted on 27 June 2006. At that time its cabin was configured for up to 149 passengers.

'UF was returned to service after being fitted with slim-back seats with its cabin reconfigured for up to 155 passengers on 9 March 2007.

BA retired 'UF on 31 August 2007 after it operated EDI-LHR (BA1463) that day.

Here is 'UF on 3 June '06 before repainting with its name, "United Kingdom", on its nose and its abbreviated registration "SF" on the top of its tail and on its nose-wheel door. The second photo was taken on 13 March '07 after repainting. Now it has no name. Its abbreviated registrations are now both "USF":

That's interesting to hear the work carried out on SF before her retirement. you would think money could have been saved there if BA knew she was scheduled for retirement in Aug 2007, kept her in original config and saved some paint which must be costly.

Unless the BA LHR Paint Shop was empty between 14 April and early May there should be another one or two so far unidentified repainted aircraft rolled out between 21 April and around 3 May.

Note that the dates above are back-in-service dates for repainted aircraft and roll-out or first reported dates for new aircraft.

Thanks for that.

I have since googled 'G-LCYI' and found this photo of this aircraft with the Crest taken at FRA on 3 June:

http://www.flickr.com/photos/axel_j/8939810762/

The latest photo I can find of this aircraft WITHOUT the Crest was taken at FRA on 25 April. So I thought that this aircraft may have filled the gap in the list of aircraft painted at LHR in very late April / early May. However I can find no record of 'YI visiting LHR in this time frame. So . . . ??? Then I had another look at the above photo and this time saw that the Crest is both smaller (relative to the point size of the titles) and darker (or more visible) than on other aircraft so likely was not repainted by BA at LHR. So there may still be another as yet unreported aircraft with the Crest.

Again, thanks.

'UD was rolled out in Crest livery on 7 June but as yet does not appear to have been returned to service so presumably in undergoing maintenance at LHR.

Agreed. I also see that the 'Embraer 170' titles are still present aft of the rear cabin door of 'YI. Titles like these that identify the aircraft type are painted on many aircraft by the manufacturer prior to delivery. However I have not seen any BA aircraft excepting only the retro (Negus & Negus) liveried 752, G-CPET, carrying such titles after repainting by BA.

'ET had gold 'Boeing 757' titles on its lower rear fuselage just like the first 12 752s when delivered to BA. It also had the same large, dark blue and red 757' titles on its upper rear fuselage.

Not exactly a BA livery, but take a careful look just below the flight-deck windows of these three Do 328 100s, D-CIRJ, 'RP and D-CCIR:

The small 'British Airways' titles and the BA Speedmarque have apparently been on the left side of these Do 328s for perhaps as long as a year. They are also on the left nose of sister ship D-CIRI. The earliest report I have found so far was of D-CIRI operating for Sun-Air / BA at DUS on 22 May 12. This same aircraft was later reported operating a Sun-Air / BA flight at MAN on 31 August. But neither report mentioned the very small BA titles.

Cirrus Airlines - who are credited with operating one of the aircraft in these photos - went into administration in January 2012. Back then some of their 328s, including 'RI, 'RJ and 'RP, went to MHS Aviation in Germany. BA franchise operator Sun-Air of Scandinavia then leased four of these aircraft. They needed the immediate additional capacity the Do 328s provided when Skyway and City Airline went into administration and ceased operations on 22 May 2012 and Sun-Air took over some of their routes perhaps even before City Airline ceased operations. I believe these routes may have included the MAN-GOT service.

It is parked on the ramp at ARN and I have looked really hard, but it is not there. I know it was faint, but this is invisible.(and I am on the ramp about a metre away!)

Same reason one of the B757s were painted with the Landor tail squinty? (G-BIKG from memory, you could spot it a mile off). Sounds like human error. Like G-EUUC having the last two on the fin whereas all the other A320 crest re-paints now have the last three.

It can be assumed that 'NB was given its red nose and "Flying Start" nose titles (that are not present on the right side of the nose where the "Operated by British Airways (BA) Ltd" titles are still present) before Red Nose Day on 15 March last.

Thanks for the other updates. Below is the tail end of the revised list of aircraft in service or rolled out in the Union Flag Crest livery. It now also includes 787 G-ZBJC (with its first reported date):

G-DOCE departed Heathrow for an airtest this afternoon on a Southampton SID and presumably returned to Gatwick. Nicely clean in the new colours, last three on the fin with the crest on the fuselage and the black ring removed form the nose.

G-EUUD looks resplendent in its new paint, BUT there is no crest!

Absolutely right, nice and shiny Airbus but not a trace of the crest, has last three on the fin now as well.

'CE was repainted with the Crest in September last year:

It was the 44th aircraft to be so painted.

Although we normally only see BA 734s at LHR when they visit their paint shop, I guess on this occasion it must have been back at LHR for some corrective maintenance. That would also explain the test flight.

G-BNWO appears to have had its starboard-side nose gear door taken from NWY, as I saw it today the last letter of the registration on the door was painted over blue and someone has taken a paintbrush and put an O on it instead!

Thanks. That makes a lot of sense. 'CW was rolled out of the paint shop on 26 June but did not then return to LGW. So it looks as if it might have gone tech while at LHR.

TheBaSource link below says G-EUUO came out paint shop without crest? Have they added crest separately later on? I thought crest was applied with same grey as doors surrounds and that crest is not a transfer applied after?
According to previous posts G-EUUD also has no crest?

Here is link to UO.

I have just been taking a second look at Episode 2 of the BBC programme, "Airport Live". At between 15.53 and 15.59 an aircraft taxies past the rear of BA 320 G-EUYO on a stand at LHR T5. That aircraft appears to have an all-white fuselage and engines with the only markings apparently the registration on the lower rear fuselage. It appears to have a standard BA Union Flag tail. Can anyone identify which aircraft it is?

Here is a link to the 59 minute video to the programme:

Another A320 out of the paint shop today, G-EUUR with the crest apparently.

Has anyone confirmed that BA have changed the shade of white due to all the recents opinions the A380, 787 and new G-EUYO are looking a brighter shade of white?

Anyhoo...there's a naked A321 in the hangar at TBA tonight, wearing nothing but green primer gunk and a Union Flag tail. No trace of the reg on the tail or nose gear doors but libhomeradar suggests that G-EUXG last flew on the 21st July.

It is 'XG. The BA Source is reporting that the wing was damaged earlier in the week when something fell onto it from the Paint Shop roof!

'XG was ferried LHR-MAD (BA9272E) on Monday 29 July for its repaint to be finished in the IB Paint Shop. Presumably it had been replaced in the BA LHR Paint Shop while being repaired. But with what?

Alternately the LHR paint shop might be temporarily closed whilst the machinery is checked over in order to work out why something fell from the roof, that would explain why XG is being finished in MAD

After UUR left on 16 July, the paint bay should have housed UUP then UXG then UUS up until 05 Aug. Then the paint bay is closed for roof maintenance until October.
The contractors are coming, and perhaps this was the easiest way out?

Probably, things falling from the roof can be problematic, especially with multi million pound planes below. If there was only one more respray scheduled before maintenance it wouldn't be economic to check everything a week before the work started.

Couldn't IAG open a 2nd bay at LHR for BA/IB/VY and have a main paintshop hub for all 3 airlines but leave what is in MAD for IB/VY?

My understanding is that the BA paintshop at LHR can handle approx. 1 plane each week, this enables them to repaint the entire fleet approximately every 5 years, even as the fleet gradually increases they are a long way from needing a 2nd bay. Its far more economic to use surplus capacity at MAD or subcontract a few frames. A paint bay is a very expensive item to set up with its controlled atmosphere, filtrations systems, and movable roof mounted gantries, additionally if BA constructed a 2nd paint bay at LHR something else would have to be lost in order to create the space. It would be far more likely if IAG wanted an additional paint bay for them to build two bays at CWL and close the LHR one, as CWL has plenty of open space.
