The British Airways Branding

The Flower Duet by Leo Delibes is generally the musical theme that is used in the advertising of British Airways followed with the slogan of ‘The World’s Favourite Airline’, howeverin 2001 the slogan was dropped as thepassenger count for the airline was second to that of Lufthansa. However the song is still used by the airline.

British Airways is the official airline that is used for the Wimbledon Championship and in 2012 were the airline for the summer Olympics and the Paralympics.

Since the beginning of British Airways in 1974, their tail fins have always carried that of a Union Jack and have continued to do so with variations of the Union Jack.

However in 1997 the airline changed their designs to abstract world images and logos that were related to the countries that they travelled to. This came with a lot of controversy even from Margaret Thatcher who was the Prime Minister at the time.

Virgin Atlantic quickly took the British flag design and paired it with the slogan of ‘Britain’s national flag carrier’. In 1999 Bob Ayling announced that all the British Airways planes would be repainted with the Union flag that was based on the first design that was used on the Concorde.
