The question which comes to my mind is that, if everyone dislikes BA and dislikes the Union Tail... then why have two airlines made their own versions of it?

Conclusion: It can not be as bad as everyone likes to think.

Trend-setter !

I like the "flag flutterers" a lot.
I just don't care for the rest of the Delta scheme  Smile
