British Airways B747 with Special oneworld Livery

Following the special, oneworld liveries applied to some airplanes by Japan Airlines, LAN and Finnair, now the biggest European member of the alliance has also followed with a special livery on one of its 55 Jumbo Jets.


The Boeing 747-400, registration number: G-CIVP (also known as “The V.P.“) has been given a new paint-job, displaying large “member of oneworld” titles on the front part of its fuselage. The letters of the smaller “member of” text from a distance look like if they were additional windows on the top floor. The large letters in “oneworld” are painted between the two floors of the Jumbo, with the top of the “d” vritually ending smoothly in one of the top floor windows.

British Airways or oneworld is yet to publish any press coverage about the special livery, or whether if other planes would follow, but “The V.P.” has already been spotted at Heathrow two days ago.

    I don’t like it. Looks very early 2000s…

    Finally! Each Star Alliance airline has a plane in the alliance paint scheme. GO ONEWORLD!

    Indeed! Iberia has also rolled out an Airbus A320 painted in “Member of Oneworld” livery:
    Hoping that all other members will follow! 🙂
