British Airways B747-400 BA116 JFK-LHR



Find the full text trip report right here.

My first flight with British Airways. While I have had much better international flights - this flight had it's fair share of surprises. As always, great to be on a B747!

"British Airways Details Aircraft Due to Receive Retro Liveries for Company Centennial"

"As British Airways prepares to celebrate a centennial of flights this year, the airline embarked on its largest advertising campaign since the 2012 London Olympic Games. The first part of the campaign is a video advertisement which begins airing on Feb. 1, 2019. The video features a Boeing 787 aircraft with a special “BA 100” sticker as well as customers, cabin crew, pilots and engineers from across the airline as they carry out the final touches for a British Airways flight – BA100.

Carolina Martinoli, British Airways’ Director of Brand and Customer Experience described the campaign is about “thanking the amazing people who fly with us, work with us and partner with us.”

She continued to state: “As it’s our 100th birthday, we plan to make this year very special for all of them – past and present – which is underpinned by our ongoing £6.5bn investment program to deliver new aircraft, cabins, service and destinations. Our airline has been forged over 100 years. As we are inherently made by Britain it’s fitting that our campaign captures and celebrates everything great about our home nation.”

The video advertisement, however, is only a small part of the airline’s planned celebrations. The airline will also paint four aircraft in its fleet with retro liveries celebrating the various carriers that merged over the years to become British Airways. American Airlines did something similar in 2015 when it introduced various heritage aircraft from carriers that created the newly merged carrier.

While American Airlines painted its retro liveries on Boeing 737 and Airbus A319 planes, British Airways is planning to fly a fleet of three heritage 747s and one A319. The 747s will join Lufthansa’s D-ABYT, the only 747 currently flying a retro livery.

Earlier in January, British Airways announced the first airline it will honor with a special livery: British Overseas Airways Corporation (BOAC). G-BYGC, a 747, will exit the paint shop on Feb. 18 sporting the classic BOAC livery once seen on 747-100s in the late 1960s and early 70s. In addition to the livery, the aircraft will have a decal noting British Airways’ 100th anniversary. While it was always presumed that additional aircraft will be painted in other retro liveries to celebrate the centennial, British Airways has not yet publicly stated any additional plans.

Sources close to AirlineGeeks, however, have revealed that the airline is planning to paint three more aircraft with special liveries. The first of the additional liveries will be British Airways’ previous livery, dubbed the Landor colors. G-CIVB, also a 747, will fly the Landor livery which British Airways used between 1984 and 1997. The Negus livery, used between 1980 and 1985 will also be brought back to life on G-CIVE, the third 747 to receive a special retro livery.

Commenting on the information regarding the upcoming retro liveries, a British Airways spokesperson told AirlineGeeks, “At present we are only able to confirm the BOAC livery will be on our 747 G- BYGC.”

G-CIVB (Landor livery) will be retired this November and will only wear its heritage livery for a couple of months. G-CIVE (Negus livery) will be retired in Nov. 2022 and will most likely G-BYGC (BOAC livery), however, does not currently have a set retirement date.

Aside from the three 747s to receive retro liveries, an Airbus A319 (G-EUPJ) will also receive special colors for the centennial. This aircraft will sport a livery commemorating British European Airways. BEA began flying in 1946 and merged with BOAC in 1974 to create British Airways."

"British Airways places order for up to 42 B777-9 aircraft"

"International Airlines Group has placed an order for up to 42 B777-9 aircraft for its member carrier British Airways.

The deal consists of 18 firm orders, plus options on a further 24 aircraft.

IAG says the B777-9s will be configured in a four-class layout, with a total of 325 seats, and will be used to replace 14 B747-400s and four B777-200s between 2022 and 2025.

The list price for the B777-9 is around US$442.2 million, although IAG said that it has negotiated “a substantial discount from the list price”. The new aircraft will be powered by General Electric GE9X engines.

Commenting on the news Willie Walsh, IAG chief executive, said:

“The new B777-9 is the world’s most fuel efficient long-haul aircraft and will bring many benefits to British Airways’ fleet. It’s the ideal replacement for the Boeing 747 and its size and range will be an excellent fit for the airline’s existing network.

“This aircraft will provide further cost efficiencies and environmental benefits with fuel cost per seat improvements of 30 per cent compared to the Boeing 747. It also provides an enhanced passenger experience”.

The news comes as BA prepares to welcome the first of its Airbus A350 aircraft into the fleet this year, which will feature the carrier’s new Club World seat.

The airline currently has a total of 135 wide-bodied aircraft in its fleet (12 A380s, 30 B787s, 12 B777-300ERs, 46 B777-200s and 35 B747s), with 12 more B787s, four B777-300ERs and 18 A350s also on order."

What's interesting is this firm order plus options comes just one week after the A380 program was officially cancelled. Just comes to show how IAG were using the A380 program as a negotiating tactic, but their real intentions were to purchase the 779.

I also think their might be an additional 778/9 order if Australia picks Boeing for its project Sunrise platform to link the UK, and Australia.

PICTURES: "Landor 747 named as next British Airways retrojet"

"British Airways has announced that its next retrojet will be a Boeing 747-400 adorned with the Landor design. The third iteration of the centenary heritage livery released by British Airways is taking to the skies at the end of March."

"The Boeing 747-400, registration G-BNLY, is currently being painted in Landor colours, which decorated the British Airways fleet from 1984-1997."

IAG have a problem though, Revenue (and capacity) is growing faster at the Non BA ( Spanish and Irish) components of IAG than they are at BA. They also have better operating margins (mainly).

The Airline industry has a 9 month derogation from Brexit (whenever that happens) but at the end of that 9 months the EU rules on majority ownership kick in hard. They claim to be a Spanish Company, but really????

As far as they're concerned they can even be a 51 percent Irish owned company as long as their registered in the EU, work by EU standards/regulations, and pay EU taxes.

BA 787

Does anyone have experience flying on-board BA's 787 economy? How is it like? I am flying to Mexico with BA's 787 later this month and I really hope I won't be disappointed for a 12-hour flight

I flew BA's 787-9 on LHR-KUL route - 13h in a plane. I have to admit that it was ok. Of course, it is economy class so do not expect something extraordinary but you won't be disappointed. Food and drinks were ok, seat was comfortable. The flight went smoothly and without any delay.

I don't think the 777-9 is their real intention.

BA is going to operate more A380s... Airways magazine had discussed the mindset behind British Airways, and it has to do with ensuring they acquire enough aircraft before the third runway and the new UK second hub (and the new EI is the new B6 Dublin hub) are established. They don't want to be caught unprepared just in case they are delayed. BA is still the largest Europe transfer hub while the UK's actual hub is in Charles de Gaulle.
