LONDON – British Airways has painted G-YMMR one of its Boeing 777-236(ER)s with its air alliance group oneworld livery. It is now the only aircraft in the entire British Airways that is painted with the oneworld livery, with many different opinions being shared about it online.
Over the years British Airways has provided us with some truly unique and unforgettable liveries, from the 747 special tail liveries to its classic Negus, BOAC and Landor, but the latest iteration of the oneworld paint scheme onto its Boeing 777, has left spotters and aviation enthusiast divided with opinions on how it looks.
The livery almost looks like it is out of scale, as if the wording is too small, while also having a strange layout to it that sees the bottom of the oneworld letters cut out by the windows. It seems strange that BA has gone for such a design as this is not the only oneworld liveried 777 in the alliance.
Qatar Airways, one of the most recent members to join also utilised the Boeing 777 to sport its oneworld look, and some would argue that BA perhaps could have followed their example for design.
The Boeing 777 has been with BA its entire service life, with it being delivered to the airline back in March 2009. It was also one of many aircraft that was fitted with the “Keeping the Flag Flying” sticker, which was located at the back of the aircraft, it flew the sticker from Jun 2010 until June 2011.
It is one of BA’s older 777s with an age of almost 13.8 years and is configured in the airlines classic tri-class cabin layout. With 48 Club World, 24 World Traveller Plus, and 203 World Traveller seats.
