Re: British Airways Utopia Livery CLASSIC VIDEOS 1998-2001

I'm thinking of starting a Gemini collection of world tails. I'm pretty sure I have them all already, and all the others like Big Bird etc.. The discussion of models probably belongs in the "Hobby" forum, but I am not sure how many Utopia fans will look over there. 1:400 scale has a good ...

Re: British Airways Utopia Livery CLASSIC VIDEOS 1998-2001

Does anyone have any pictures of the unused 'world images' designs? Some countries were noticeably absent from the original collection of World Images...no countries from Latin America and the Caribbean represented despite BA's presence there (they had an even bigger presence there in 1998-2001, ha...

WBA on the fin all but confirms G-XWBA. The worst kept “secret” in the world.

Re: Confirmed: British Airways to paint 4 aircraft in retro livery

Yes I was thinking the lower half was polished metal. All three of my BOAC diecast model 741's are like this too. They also show the entire upper cowling as white, not just a rectangular area as shown in the retro. The original engine cowlings were shorter than the current ones. I believe that the ...

Re: British Airways to paint 4 aircraft in retro livery

...you have summed up the problem with Utopia well. I think it was a not bad idea which ran out of control, a few aircraft tails with say the Chelsea Rose, the Welsh one, Scots themed too, most importantly it alienated a lot of customers. ....... The night before the unveiling, Concorde G-BOAF and ...

Re: British Airways to paint 4 aircraft in retro livery

These: https://s3.eu-central-1.amazonaws.com/centaur-wp/designweek/prod/content/uploads/2015/04/BA-Livery-1002x801.jpg Do not. For me, inconsistent colouring, type of image, pattern, etc. makes it 'off-brand' and causes a break in corporate identity to which airline these tailfins once belonged. Re...

Does anybody know if Qatar are providing a full in flight service on the covering flights for BA during the strike?.


At least on the flight from SOF, the Club Europe service was provided with BA menus, food, glasses and cutlery.

Re: BA applies to use Qatari aircraft to cover strike

Landed LHR and parked on a hard stand east of T5C along with 3 other Qatar 320s. I guess BA are trying to keep them out of sight from T5A and most of the public.

Re: BA applies to use Qatari aircraft to cover strike

Don't know if these aircraft will serve what FR24 says they will.... A7-ADD should arrive at LHR at 8:59pm. Tomorrow then, it should go to Sofia and back (BA890/1) and then a trip to Madrid (BA464/5) I'm due to fly on BA891 SOF-LHR tomorrow. It will be interesting to see if A7-ADD is actually on th...

Re: New Members Posting For First Time

I have posted a couple of times over the past few weeks. The first while sitting on the taxiway during the BA/LHR debacle and more recently on the BA World tails thread. Neither post was accepted. What gives?
