After BA got rid of the World Tails, I've been a big fan of their livery, but the grey crest has to go. It's completely incongruous with the rest of the livery. The crest is stodgy and stuffy, and the whole point of changing the livery from the previous Landor scheme was to get rid of that image. The Speedmarque and the waving Union Flag on the tail were supposed to represent a softer image. I'm glad it's only on a handful of aircraft so far, and they seem to be slow in putting it on the fleet.
I agree. The change from the Landor livery was made because people complained the livery added a bit of "arrogance" to BA
. The crest brings a bit of that arrogance back. Not only that, but it sticks out on the plane like a sore thumb.
Speaking of World Tails, I think the A380 would be stunning in Animals and Trees or Whalerider IMHO.
