BA and Virgin

Tit for tat liveries.

Vigin livery: “No way BA / AA

Virgin Livery: “BA cant keep it up” (with the word ‘it’ crossed out and the word ‘Concorde’ painted over the top)

BA livery: (heard about this - didn't see this first hand) “Neither could virgin”

rArcano, u forgot AV and P5, now that P5 introduces the slogan "La aerolinea de colombia", AV is really pissed off because that was their original slogan. Also, they are attacking P5 on many markets, and P5 is fighting back.

I know here in the islands, Hawaiian and Aloha have a heated rivalry. During merger talks 2 yrs ago, the ramp rats came to blows. I think that happened at ITO. I dont know what it was about though.

gotta be BA vs VS... they absolutely hate each other. Remember the Dirty Tricks episode. The PR between them is still vitriolic.
