The 747 - BA's New Flagship Aircraft?

Fri Oct 24, 2003 7:43 pm

I just went to the BA website and noticed this in place of what has been an image of Concorde for a while:



So is the 747 now their flagship aircraft? The whole flagship thing was mentioned on TV this morning, but Rod Eddington mentioned both the 747, 777 and others and didn't actually say what their flagship aircraft would now be.

No, then there's the Jetstreams and ATP's with BA.
But yes, the 744 will now become the flagship plane.
In Arsene we trust!!

Now BA HAVE to get some A380's - can't be stuck with just last-generation equipment ! Otherwise Branson's going to go nuts

A340-600 - "Mines longer than yours"
A340-500 - "Mines faster than yours"
A380- "Mines WAY bigger than yours"

Poor Mr Eddingtion will need to go to a support group.

BA could get a slogan on their aircraft

'My CEO is not an Egotistical publicity seeker'  Wink/being sarcastic

I think the least they could do is give the poor guy a knighthood, to even things up.

A340-500 - "Mines faster than yours"

Virgin doesnt operate the A345... an aircraft, which by the way, is slower than both BA's 744s and 772ERs
Faire du ciel le plus bel endroit de la terre c'est impossible sans Concorde!
