I noticed in my current edition of JP Airline Fleets that one of BA's 777s is named 'City of Chicago.' Anyone know why that is, inasmuch as there is no 'City of Boston;' 'City of Philadelphia;' 'City of Detroit;' et al. For the record, I've been on G-VIIG twice--once from Boston to London in 1997 and again in 1999 from London to Boston. Also have been on G-YMMC (BOS-LHR) and G-VIIU (LHR-BOS)...both in 2000.

City of Chicago is so namesd for this reason (by the way two aircraft were once named that, at the same time, two 777s)

It was to be the first BA a/c with the entire new fit, new econ, econ plus, bus, and first. Its first destination was Chicago, so to celebreat they named it that. And the second a/c was also named that in case the first one went "Tech"
And the one reason there is no Boston etc...
They dont name a/c any more.... they have major cities form Europe on 767s and 744s have names, but not much more as they are all being painted.

For the record as well, G-BNLX is named City of New York (carries current Union Flag c/s, no United Kingdom on the rear fuselage and the flag is larger than the 1999-2000 version)
