Even though I work for British Airways, I wish we had never taken over British Caledonian. They were a great airline. I flew them many times (LGW to EDI, DFW, AMS, CDG) and loved them....the service was amazing, those flight attendants with tartan uniforms and the white gloves....ahhhh....memories.
It would be great to see what they could have been. They probably would have been awarded all the routes that Virgin now has. They were being courted by SAS before BA swallowed them whole, so they would probably be a Star Alliance member now. They also ordered the MD11 so im sure their network would have been quite substantial by now.
Oh well...........Enjoying flying British Airways, not a bad second choice
