Looks like a half-baked "solution". Three years??? why bother w/the investment?Jump to post
One 727 was painted dark brown w/white tail at Boeing, but the color was changed to medium blue (?) before delivery. I've seen a pic of it in Braniff: Flying Colors. Think the color was changed for bit too obvious reason.Jump to post
I vote for Dallas Love Field. DL did operate it here in early 1970s. (and it could have 'fun' with WN....)Jump to post

It's striking and very eye-catching, but is simply looks ugly.
It's better than Braniff's Calder livery. JMOJump to post
BN did lease an AA 747 in 1978 to start DFW - LHR service. The book "Braniff Airways Flying Colors" shows a pic of the plane in AA silver with a big BI in black on the tail and titles in black near the front, plus an orange stripe over the AA tricolor.Jump to post
IIRC BN didn't have a 747 in 1969 (AA didn't start 747 service until March 1970). The Hawaii service was likely started w-707's.
If you don't already have it, get "A Splash of Colors" - a book about BN's history.
