The BA Design / Art Thread

This thread is a place to post or discuss any artwork or design aspects used by BA (I'm guessing mostly in the lounges).

For example and to start the thread, here are some pictures of posters one sees in the Flounge at T5 and the AMS lounge:


India BOAC by BA_pics, on Flickr


Imperial Airways by BA_pics, on Flickr

Imperial Airways Australia by BA_pics, on Flickr


AMS lounge BOAC poster by BA_pics, on Flickr


AMS lounge BA poster3 by BA_pics, on Flickr

AMS lounge BA poster 2 by BA_pics, on Flickr

Anyone else interested in such things?

There's a great collection, including uniforms and many other memorabilias, in the BA heritage center at waterside. It is worth a visit IMO, perfectly for a long layover with not enough time to head to central London.

I always used to like the photos on the safety card which showed the aircraft you were flying on in flight. When they changed it to something resembling a plastic aircraft model (maybe around the time when all of the 'enhancements' started) I started noticing a difference..............nuff said.....
