I think they were all tacky. British Airways did away with the best livery in the industry when they got rid of the gray/black scheme. That livery was soooo classy, and totally British. British Asia Airways was great too in the old C/S.

WINGS - the only aviation related tail - they should have kept that one fleetwide.

The idea of wolrd tails was a genius one. She they got stuck with the one that offered the least renewal.
It´s so british, that it makes you go sick

As a 'True Brit' the only decent scheme is the Union Flag one.

Nothing beats the old livery BA had. Out of the new livery - Concorde wins by a mile.

i agree with you, the old scheem was a beauty and it was great. But i think the design on the concord is the best, what is it called, the one with the ribbon?
thanks, sorry for the stupid question, just to many names to remember  
kind regards

'Benyhone Tartan' is the best by a long shot, but the 'Union Jack' is good too.
