[Cancelled] British Airways to upgrade domestic flights to 747 for its centenary on 25 Aug

Post by sn26567 » 03 Jun 2019, 22:08

On the day of its birthday, British Airways has upgraded three of its domestic U.K. flights from their usual Airbus fleet.

Three flights on August 25 will operate on Boeing 747-400s, expected to feature a retro heritage livery such as BOAC, Landor or Negus to Manchester, Newcastle and Glasgow. These are all part of the airline’s centenary celebrations.

The flight details are assumed to be as follows, according to the carrier’s current schedule:

Glasgow

BA1482 LHR-GLA/BA1487 GLA-LHR

Manchester

BA1386 LHR-MAN/BA1391 MAN-LHR

Newcastle

BA1326 LHR-NCL/BA1327 NCL-LHR

Even though the schedule indicates that these flights are in fact operating, the airline says that they are not confirmed as of now and are subject to equipment changes.

"BOAC" is a name well known; but what do "Landor" and "Negus" refer to?

The different liveries to celebrate British Airways' 100th birthday, which has been contested by many visitors of this site as - apparently - the airline wasn't created 100 years ago.

British Airways has canceled the 747 upgrades, much to the disappointment of many plane spotters and aviation enthusiasts.

Have they surrendered to protests from the green boys (m/f)?
