I like the current one best.
I liked the ethnic tails too. It was all part of breaking away from being stuffy and inward looking and positioning itself as a global as opposed to a British airline. I was sad to see them go.

My vote is for a Landor 777. Such a classy looking livery. Even the old ticket jackets from then looked so good compared to other airlines

As much as I like the present livery perhaps a new one is needed. The present one when it was introduced represented an airline that was leading edge. Perhaps a frumpier one would be more appropriate.

So all I need to do is publish a newspaper criticising BA but offer it for free to BA and they'll hand it out

Personally I don't think the Daily Mail gives the best impression of the UK to any visitors that pick it up and read it. Perhaps some of these quality Channel 5 documentaries need to be loaded into the IFE too!

I'd rather watch that than the Big Bang Theory episodes that pollute the IFE on almost every airline

If BA want to leapfrog their competition in IFE, load on the entire collection of BBC iPlayer, ITV Player, 4oD, Demand 5, and Sky Go.

If they make it so the above updates regularly just like with the current platforms available entertainment would be fantastic.

My vote would clearly go to this:



Ok BA can drop the *A logo, I am not that picky...

I like the current logo but the rather stiff upper lip Landor is nice too (elitist looking as well )
As long as we never see either of these versions of red/white/blue on the tail of BA we should be okay
