I would say B747 in old BA colours. However I can't tell if it's a 200 or 400. You can sometimes tell by the width of the wings, but this is a tough one.

I agree with Dave. Definetly a BA '47' the variation however as Dave indicated is a tough call, but I'll say that this is a 200 series.

I must disagree with Steffan. There is one person in Business Class. He's about 5ft9inches and has dark hair. I believe he may be wearing glasses, but hard to tell from that altitude.

Definitely United - the tail hints at it, but the dead giveaway is the two grey strips on the underside (BA's are blue bottomed). The wings suggest it's a -400.

The are TWO guys in business class - the other one is in the toilet at the moment.

Da fwog, agree with you, the grey part on the belly points to UA. BTW why is it left grey/metal, it looks awful when you see it on takeoff.
