I want the Landor livery back. Then all the other IAG airlines can do whatever they want. It's not like EI or IB ever had a real nice livery. So whatever they do, it's probably an improvement. Just gimme that damn Landor livery back BA! At least paint a few retro liveries. BOAC would be nice, too...
Landor looks great in
2) When freshly painted
Outwith 1) and 2) above, it looks TERRIBLE. I spotted through the Landor years, and have a few decent shots BUT being UK based, hardly anyone raved about it at the time. Our climate is often grey and dull, something Landor looked lousy in. I remember shooting BA one particular night at GLA, B734, B757, B763, Dash 8, BAeATP, Jetstream 41, SD360 and Islander all in this amazing Landor scheme everyone now raves about. Not one spotter raised a camera one time for one aircraft! In comparison to Negus and Negus which was at least bright and upbeat, Landor was like the Galactic Empire, no one local ever loved it. I appreciate it's different in North America when a Landon painted heavy might turn up in daily sunshine, but LORDY, it wasn't raved about at the time believe me.
btw it seems no one at BA will contemplate a BOAC livery for connotations with the Empire period, (British not Galactic). Couple with the feelings around Brexit and IMHO allegations we're turning the clock back here in the UK, I cannot see how a BOAC retro livery would ever get past senior management, it's just too controversial in a social media world where we can all raise merry Hell simply because we can. However I imagine a Landor and Negus&Negus pair of B744s in their final year wouldn't be impossible after 40+ years of B747 ops. However be aware the B767 was retired with no send of worth mentioning.
