Saw the England team depart LTN on Monday last week in BA A320 G-EUUI. The aircraft was exactly as in this photo except the name was changed from 'Three Lions' to 'The Pride of the Nation' on Monday morning (5 June) prior to the positioning LHR-LTN flight (d. LHR 1115 hours BST). Here is the aircraft:

Is this still valid after a court ruled (correct???) against that only sponsor usage?
