@milehighfuzz I donít think itís unreasonable for me to say CIHY is something of a BA loyalist, of course the problem with being a loyalist is that itís that much harder to see the grand old dame in a state of disrepair!!

My point is just that if individuals feel that BA is toxic to the point of tainting the brands associated with theirs, I wonder why they want to read and post on a forum about the BAEC? Other than to fire off spiteful oneliners that is
Your point is a valid one. ^

What about a new look for the comic relief donations envelope?

I'm not so sure.

If someone has opinions, positive or negative, about British Airways then where better to post them than a forum dedicated to matters BA?

As posted by a few accounts on Twitter. Someone was actually paid for this? Must have taken them all of 10 minutes to come up with this ďgeneric European airlineĒ look.

I suspect this is BA trying to be gender neutral.

Wonder if the unions were consulted on this garbage?

Gender neutral by making everyone wear a tie!

These are pretty boring and a poor reflection on BA! Or maybe they are an accurate reflection - which in itself is quite sad!

Those red ties/scarves are horrendous. Feeling sorry for the poor staff expected to wear something so poorÖ

Presume this is the cheapest new uniform they can do by the looks of how bad it is, why not just keep the current uniform??

It's very Swissport. Not a patch on the current one IMHO.

At least we can blame Alex Cruz for this as this was approved under his tenure!
