BA Drop One World Logo In Error?

Sat Apr 22, 2006 7:17 am

I was looking at a photo I took of BA's 757 G-CPET earlier this month and noticed that the 'OneWorld' logo had diappeared from its former position immediately aft of the 1L cabin door. I saw that the small 'BOEING 757' titles that were formally painted above the rear cargo door just forward of the fuselage registration letters had also gone. A search of A-net yielded these photos confirming these differences:

I wondered if this was a significant change with a meaning yet to be revealed by BA. So I did a further search. I found that G-CPES had also been repainted towards the end of last yeat and that it no longer carried the 'BOEING 757' titles. However the 'OneWorld' logo, as seen below in these 'before and after' photos, was still present.

Of course it is possible that 'ES was repainted before 'ET and there is an unannounced significance in the dropping on the OneWorld logo on 'ET. But I guess that its absence is just an oversight. Can anyone confirm this?

I can still see the oneworld logo in the second picture. The "boeing 757" titles is gone, but the purple oneworld logo is still there.

The OneWorld Logo is missing in the 4th photo... but isn't the One World one a sticker? It may have peeled off...

Hey,

As others have said, they OneWorld logo is in all apart from the 4th. Probably peeled off.

Thanks
Mike
