OneWorld Livery

Now that the 747s are gone, the BA fleet has no aircraft in the OneWorld livery. I know before it was mentioned that a few 777s would get a repaint but is this still the plan?

Itís a shame none of the new deliveries are planned to get the OneWorld scheme. An A350 or A320neo would look great in it.

Maybe OneWorld is up in arms! The tone coming from AC and WW certainly isnít optimistic, I understand thereís not much to be optimistic about but to think beyond outside of each individual carrier is further down the list now. However some optimism wouldnít go a miss for the industry.

Besides wouldnít a new complete livery be in order after all this? Corona and Brexit is going to change BA quite significantly for better or worse...til death do we part

There are far more pressing issues facing the management team than 'livery' at the moment.

Yes I appreciate that, but OneWorld stipulate that a certain number of aircraft must display the OneWorld titles.

Of course there will be flexibility but itís something that will need to be considered later this year or next.

Cost cutting is in their DNA and oneWorld has fewer characters than British Airways so will require less blue paint so wouldnít it be a good idea to save on blue paint and complete all paint jobs in OW livery?

Iím spending the next couple of weeks up a ladder peeling stickers off the side of Door 1L before we sell some scrap to Aragon, South Wales and California.

If you want to give us a hand Iíll give you £8.72 an hour, but youíll have to bring your own ladder and PPE. Donít expect paying for rest breaks either. Its Jason btw, give us a bell!

A set of naff transfers that'll be applied to the empty white bit on other aircraft and which will no doubt be flaking off in no time has probably already been procrured from some dodgy body shop on eBay.

I dunno that I ever really liked the livery. But hey since it's a topic, here's a photo I have of it from PHX.

Why bother to reply then?

I find talk of seats and many other things boring but I don't go on every thread saying I don't care. Pointless waste of time.

Oh dear. Despite your signature your views do represent how some of us who don't work for BA view BA staff.

Seriously - if you don't like the topic, don't read and don't reply - but leave others who do in peace - it's an airline forum!
