You're damn right there Iceman ! And the only person who had the balls to rail against it was a little old lady with a handbag attending a trade conference , who walked up to the BA trade-stand and covered the tail of the model display aircraft with a napkin .
Luckily , after many thousands of similar complaints , they [for some reason] listened to this old girl and took her advice and at the same time , a certain Mr R. Ayling was sent off on his bike .
The big difference though , is that this old BOAC styled livery , is not something out of a child's sketch pad . It's a proper airline livery/identity . Something that has gone amiss in this age of virtual airlines and everything being outsourced .
I just hope that my final year[s] with a certain other , 'nearly large' airline , will see their B.747 liveries come into a similar line of uniformity .
Not holding my breath on that one though .
