New BA.com

Looks like they've changed the header for all the pages...looks very blue! And they have the new branding tweak with the speedmarque facing the wrong way...

Only change I can see is the booking engine on the BAEC page which now looks the same as the one on the home page and now has a drop down menu with the various choices including booking with cash.

I can see what you're talking about! But only in IE.

No change yet for Firefox....

Have they fixed the 'systems not responding' error that people have been experiencing for at least a week now, or is it more tinkering around the edges?

Fine for me.

Getting annoying by the pop up box telling me about security warnings though. Been doing that on this site and one other for a good week or so now.

Home page loads in Firefox, but looks suspiciously the same as it did yesterday. Can't then log into my account.

ba.com or britishairways.com are both refusing to load in IE8 at all.

Yuck!

While I don't mind the drop down menu being improved/expanded/adjusted (there were some issues with it), the masthead graphic/logo arangement is ghaslty.

Would look so much better as (OW) BRITISH AIRWAYS > speed marque over the end of it as traditional.

Oh and a bit less blue. Too radical a change all at once as well.

Looks very 'american'.

Hi,

We have indeed made a few changes to ba.com today. The most noticeable will be the new header we've introduced across the site. We are currently showing this to a percentage of the customers using ba.com - which is why not all of you will be able to see the change for the time being.

The new header has a darker background and a white British Airways logo, so if you're seeing that - you're seeing the new header.

We'd love to get your thoughts on the changes to the design - so please post here if you have any feedback.

Thanks,

Gavin
