a difference between the 2. Seems the design originally introduced when the World Tails were scrapped in June 1999 has been dropped for a slightly vertically enlarged version. I have seen the difference on many aircraft. One thing I've noted, the A319's and A320's being delivered from Airbus all retain the "older" version even though it seems the "newer" one was introduced over a year and a half ago. I've seen both of these Union Flag variations on many BA
aircraft, from 777's to 734's, the some of the recently painted older (G-BUS-) model Airbus' do have the newer stretched out version, but again the new build 319's and 320's all retain the more compact design. I also do believe however, that the 744's version of the Union Flag has never been altered.
Maybe some BA
employees can verify that?
