I see the next in the series on the 747, out the shop.... not at all as striking as the BOAC one...
depends on the lighting I guess

By far the best British Airways livery, the current one just doesn't do it for me..
While I am in agreement with everyone that this livery is simply stunning; I can't help wondering if the angle and the lighting in the photograph does enhance the "look". I think this is an outstanding photograph ... well done to the photographer! :)

The various liveries all look much of a muchness to me, except in this last example I really think that the "a" in airways needs to be capitalized.
For me the Landor livery is very much of the time it adorned the BA fleet (mid '80's to late '90's) - there was an air of 'business formality' about it, kind of like a well dressed city gent.

Tough call, but for me it's between the soon to be unveiled Negus and the BOAC liveries. The BEA livery is pretty good too but don't think it's shown off at its best on the A319 it adorns.

I saw the BEA 319 earlier this week in LHR, but it was too quick to get a pic..

It looks really neat
