That's for sure. But I am sure that some people would become nervous if they have purchased a BA ticket and, waiting at the gate, suddenly see a huge IB or EI Jet.
There were no reports of this in the period between 1 October and 31 December 2004 when BA wet leased an IB 320 to operate both of the daily BA455/64 and B465/62 rotations to MAD out of LHR T5. A total of 27 different IB 320s all in full IB livery with no BA identification operated these flights. And this was before BA and IB came together when IAG was formed.
In the same period BA also wet leased a Titan Airways 733 (G-ZAPM) between 21 August and 15 November.
Since the start of the current Summer Timetable BA has had two Jet Time 737-7s in full Jet Time livery on wet lease. Their schedules alternate. One operates LHR-GLA-LHR (BA1474/79), LHR-CPH-LHR (BA816/17) and then LHR-CPH (BA822). The other operates CPH-LHR (BA811), LHR-EDI-LHR (BA1438/43), LHR-ABZ-LHR (BA1312/13) and LHR-GLA-LHR (BA1486/93). Again I have seen no adverse reports from passengers. These two aircraft, OY-JTT and 'TY, will be returned to Jet Time at the end of October
