You're free to have any opinion you want, as long as it's the same as mine! :biggrin:

Seriously the BA livery on 788 is fine. It's a little bit doughty / old fashioned, but that's what goes over well in Brexit-land, much as BA found out after they took incoming fire due to the 'world tails' experiment.

Overall, it's fine. Hope they buy dozens more.


You beat me to the punchline. At the end of the day it`s subjective, so he`ll have to be forgiven!
Re the `world tails` fiasco, it should be a lesson to all on how not to throw away your all important
corporate identity on someone`s whim of an idea. The shareholders were not best pleased at the
fortune wasted on that calamity.

To be back on thread a bit, I`d imagine BA will buy more B787`s, it`s a terrific bit of kit!

No need to apologize for having an opinion. You only need to apologize for being wrong! :rotfl:

But seriously though, while the 788 is a bit short in length on the aesthetic side, BA's livery actually works well on it.
It even works on the stubby A318.

This is becoming a conspiracy! I have gut feeling QF plan to roll out -ZNA under complete darkness to unveil a special livery OR paid all the Avgeeks to not release images. It doesn't take this long to paint a euro white livery!
