Titlu : British Airways Wins Court Bid To Block Strike

Citat :
British Airways on Monday won a legal bid to block a threatened five-day strike by cabin crew members, though unions said they would immediately appeal the decision.

The first of four five-day walkouts had been due to begin at midnight, but will now not go ahead as planned.

BA's lawyers had argued that the Unite union had broken the law on a technicality over the way it had conducted the strike ballot.

In the end, Justice McCombe granted the order against the union. He said the "balance of convenience" in his view required the granting of an injunction.

In a statement, BA said it would aim to restore a full flight slate at London's Heathrow airport by the weekend, pending any further disruption from the volcanic ash cloud.

It had originally anticipated operating only 60 percent of long-haul flights out of Heathrow over the strike period and 50 percent of short-haul flights.

BA called upon Unite to "take this opportunity to pause and focus on achieving the early and peaceful end to this dispute which the travelling public and all our employees want."

The union, however, said it would appeal the decision as early as Tuesday.

The dispute with cabin crew over pay and conditions has already resulted in seven days of strikes in March, which cost the airline GBP£45 million pounds.

Unite said on Sunday it had reached agreement in principle with BA over its plans to save GBP£62.5 million a year to counter falling demand, volatile fuel prices and greater competition.

Earlier the union's joint leader Derek Simpson said it was "not beyond the bounds of possibility" that a deal could be struck.

"One of the jobs that needs to be done is to provide reassurance and some confidence that if we do a deal, the deal sticks," he told BBC TV.

"There has to be resolution. It would be sad to see either the company collapse and capitulate, or it would be equally sad to see our members dragged back to work in defeat. It shouldn't be allowed to get to that stage."

The union has said the main sticking point to a deal was the restoration of travel perks taken away from staff who went on strike in March and other disciplinary matters.

BA chief executive Willie Walsh said the travel perks were not the issue.

"This is not about travel concessions; this is about a dysfunctional trade union," he said. "I'm an optimist at heart and I hope that common sense will prevail and this strike action will be called off."

Britain's new transport minister Philip Hammond, who met both parties on Monday, urged them to keep talking.

"Think about the long-term interests of the UK, the UK travelling public, the employees and the airline, because actually they are all the same," he told BBC radio.

Citat :
Unite, the union representing British Airways cabin crew, said it would go to court on Tuesday to seek to overturn a judge's last-minute ruling that blocked a planned strike.

The first of four five-day walkouts had been due to begin on Tuesday but was suspended after the court decision on Monday.

BA lawyers argued that Unite had broken the law on a technicality over the way it conducted the strike ballot.

Tony Woodley, joint head of the union, said the judge's ruling was "unbelievable".

He said BA won its injunction because the union failed to tell a small number of its 11,000 members there had been 11 spoilt ballot papers in an overwhelming vote to authorise the strikes.

"It does bring into question whether we have a right to strike in this country," he told BBC television. "The dispute with British Airways will go on. We intend to appeal, hopefully in the High Court at lunchtime today."

BA wound down its long-haul schedules out of Britain in anticipation of a strike and said it would not be able to restore a full service at London's main airport, Heathrow, until Saturday.

The union and BA have been locked in a long-running dispute over pay and conditions stemming from the airline's plans to save GBP£62.5 million pounds (USD$91 million) a year to counter falling demand, volatile fuel prices and greater competition.

Unite said the dispute with the airline was near a resolution. But it said sticking points remained over around 50 staff it said had been unfairly disciplined and over the restoration of travel perks to workers who had taken part in earlier strikes.

Woodley said BA chief executive Willie Walsh was being "incredibly petty and vindictive" by removing travel concessions from staff.

Walsh, in an article in the Times newspaper, said militant cabin crew were planning a long "guerilla campaign" to undermine the airline. "The obstacle to the resolution of this dispute is the refusal of this small group of... hardliners to accept that the world has changed," he said.

British Airways anunta al doilea an de pierderi financiare

British Airways, a treia companie aeriana din Europa, a raportat pierderi anuale record, ca urmare a scaderii turismului global din cauza recesiunii, dar si din cauza grevelor din interiorul companiei, scrie BusinessWeek.

In anul fiscal incheiat la 31 martie, pierderile nete au ajuns la 425 milioane lire sterline (613 milioane dolari), in crestere fata de 358 milioane lire sterline, cat erau in urma cu un an.

Vanzarile au scazut cu 11%, la 7,99 miliarde lire sterline. Eforturile companiei de revenire pe profit au fost impiedicate de norul de cenusa vulcanica care a inchis complet aeroporturile pentru doua saptamani, dar si de neintelegerile cu personalul de bord care ameninta cu intrarea in greva daca disputa legata de salarii nu este rezolvata.

“Revenirea pe profitabilitate necesita schimbari permanente in cadrul companiei. Suntem dezamagiti ca personalul nostru de cabina nu intelege acest lucru. Actualul an financiar va fi foarte dificil, dat fiind inceputul pe care l-a avut”, a declarat Willie Walsh, CEO-ul British Airways.

Scaderea vanzarilor din urma cu un an au fost echilibrate de reducerile de costuri in valoare de un miliard lire sterline. Cheltuielile pentru combustibil au fost reduse cu 597 milioane lire sterline fata de anul anterior, in timp ce pierderile din 2009 au fost mai mici decat estimau analistii.

BA a semnat un acord definitiv de fuziune cu operatorul spaniol Iberia, iar companiile vor sa incheie tranzactia pana la sfarsitul acestui an, a spus CEO-ul companiei. Fuziunea va reduce diferenta fata de rivalii Air France-KLM si Lufthansa.

Personalul British Airways a intrat in greva. Patru curse anulate pe Otopeni

Personalul de zbor al British Airways a inceput luni o greva de cinci zile, dupa ce negocierile pe tema salariilor si conditiilor de lucru au esuat, relateaza CNN.

Patru curse ale British Airways au fost anulate de pe Aeroportul Otopeni, trei astazi si una maine, din cauza grevei personalului de zbor care a inceput luni o greva de cinci zile, dupa ce negocierile pe tema salariilor si conditiilor de lucru au esuat.

"Astazi sunt anulate trei curse, respectiv Londra - Bucuresti, care ar fi trebuit sa aterizeze pe Otopeni la ora 12.35, Bucuresti - Londra, care ar fi trebuit sa decoleze de pe Otopeni la ora 13.20, si o alta cursa diseara, care ar fi trebuit sa soseasca de la Londra la Bucuresti la ora 23.20", au declarat reprezentantii aeroportului Otopeni, transmite NewsIn.

De asemenea, British Airways a mai anulat si maine o cursa care ar fi fost programata de plece din Bucuresti spre Londra la ora 08.30.

Vor urma alte doua greve, dar Tony Woodley, responsabil al sindicatului Unite, a spus ca grevele pot fi anulate, daca BA reintroduce diverse bonusuri de calatorie pentru angajati.

Un reprezentant al BA a declarat ca societatea este dispusa sa continue negocierile.

Compania va implementa un plan de rezerva ce va permite transportarea a peste 70% dintre pasageri in timpul primei greve. Ea va opera toate cursele de pe Gatwick si London City si mai mult de jumatate dintre cele de pe Heathrow.

Sindicatul Unite, care reprezinta aproape toti angajatii de zbor ai BA, in numar de 15.000, a fost de doua ori in greva in martie, ceea ce a provocat haos pe aeroporturi.

Titlu : British Airways Cabin Crew Begin 5-Day Strike
Sursa : http://news.airwise.com/story/view/1275260904.html
Autor : Reuters
Data : 30/05/2010

Citat :
Members of a British Airways cabin crew union began a second five-day strike after talks held last week aimed at resolving the long-running dispute ended without agreement.

The new wave of industrial action by the airline's cabin staff started officially at midnight (2300 GMT) with little sign on the horizon of a breakthrough in the increasingly bitter row.

Thousands of passengers face more disruption at the start of a week of school holidays in Britain. Cabin staff are due to begin a third wave of strikes on June 5, days before the start of the World Cup football tournament in South Africa.

The two sides are locked in disagreement over pay, reduced staffing levels and cuts to benefits.

Talks between BA and the airline's largest cabin crew union, Unite, broke off without a deal on Friday. Conciliation service ACAS said it was seeking to arrange further talks.

Seven days of walkouts in March cost BA GBP£43 million pounds.

The stoppages come at a difficult time for BA, which last week reported a second straight year of record losses and is battling a global economic downturn and industry-wide recession.

Continued industrial action, coupled with further disruption to flights in April caused by ash from an Icelandic volcano, could scupper BA's chances of avoiding a third year of losses.

BA chief executive Willie Walsh and union leaders continually blame each other for breakdowns in the often acrimonious negotiations.

On Saturday, Derek Simpson, joint general secretary of Unite, repeated his offer to suspend the walkouts if the airline restored travel perks stripped from striking crew.

The issue of travel allowances is a major sticking point in the conflict. Both sides also disagree on the impact of the strikes so far.

Despite the new strike BA said it will increase flights because more crew were returning to work than had been expected.

It said it would up its long-haul service at London's Heathrow airport to more than 70 percent of flights, from 60 percent this week. It also said it aims to increase short-haul flights at Heathrow to 55 percent of flights from 50 percent and operate a full schedule from London's Gatwick and City airports.

BA, which flies around 90,000 passengers a day, said about a quarter of its passengers would be affected by the strikes, but that they could claim a full refund, rebook or reroute their journey.

Citat :
British Airways, Striking Union Hold Talks

Talks between British Airways and officials from the Unite union were adjourned on Tuesday with no agreement reached to resolve a dispute with cabin crew staging the latest in a series of strikes.

Unite said they intended to resume talks later in the week but did not set a date.

Cabin crew began a second five-day strike on Sunday night, coinciding with a week of school holidays in Britain, after talks between Unite and the airline failed to reach agreement last week.

Another five-day strike, stemming from a long-running dispute over the airline's cost-cutting drive and staffing levels, is due to start on June 5, less than a week before the start of the football World Cup in South Africa.

Unite said the stoppages had cost BA a total of GBP£105 million pounds so far. BA said it did not recognise the figure and it was too early to put a price on the overall disruption.

However, BA has said seven days of walkouts in March cost it GBP£43 million (USD$63 million).

Mediation service ACAS is overseeing the talks at an undisclosed location after left-wing protesters disrupted a previous round of talks.

BA said it had been operating 70 percent of long-haul flights from London Heathrow and 55 percent of short-haul services from the airport during the latest strike. Flights out of London Gatwick and City airports were unaffected.

The airline said it planned to increase to more than 80 percent of long-haul flights from Heathrow if next week's strike goes ahead and 60 percent of short-haul flights.

With the World Cup in mind, BA said it would fly a full schedule to South Africa.

Unite has said it could hold a further ballot for strike action during the peak summer travel months of July and August.

Last month, BA reported a second straight year of record losses and is battling a global economic downturn and industry-wide recession as well as disruption caused by volcanic ash drifting over Europe from Iceland.

Both sides in the dispute have claimed that a deal over pay and cuts to staffing levels and travel was not too far away but have blamed each other for the lack of progress.

Deoarece cele doua parti – sefii British Airways si liderii sindicali nu au cazut inca la un acord, acestia din urma au amenintat ca nu vor opri protestele nici in luna iulie.

British Airways a asigurat ca peste o treime din clientii care si-au rezervat in aceasta perioada bilete vor putea zbura. Totodata, linia va opera si zborurile catre Africa de Sud, unde se desfasoara in perioada 11 iunie-11 iulie Campionatul Mondial de Fotbal.

Citat :
British Airways chief executive Willie Walsh said on Monday he was "absolutely determined" in its dispute with cabin crew and dismissed union suggestions that he had neglected the crisis to travel abroad.

"What we are doing is absolutely right. We are looking to secure the long-term viability of BA," Walsh said on the sidelines of the annual meeting of global airlines group IATA in Berlin.

"I am here on business... We have people available to meet and are ready to talk."

British Airways cabin crew started their latest five-day strike on Saturday in a long-running dispute which has so far cost the airline more than GBP£120 million (USD$173 million).

The strikes stem from BA's decision last November to cut cabin crew pay and alter staffing levels on its flights.

Walsh and Unite, which represents BA's cabin staff, blame each other for a breakdown in communication.

Derek Simpson, joint general secretary of Unite, said on his Twitter page that Walsh's absence meant no meetings were possible, with Walsh out of the country until Tuesday.

"I have made it clear that I am available anytime day or night to meet with BA and Willie Walsh to attempt to resolve this dispute," Simpson said in a statement.

Meanwhile, one of Unite's joint leaders, Tony Woodley, was criticised in the British press on Monday for flying off on holiday to Cyprus late last week as union members continue to strike.

The issue of travel allowances for cabin crew has become a serious sticking point in the conflict, which comes at a difficult time for BA.

"We have made it absolutely clear that if BA re-instates our members' travel concessions we would suspend the strike action," said Simpson.

A BA spokesman said conciliation service ACAS was trying to arrange discussions between the two parties but no peace talks were planned.

Talks over the past six months have failed to yield a resolution, with the walkouts having caused BA to ground flights on 19 occasions so far.

The latest strike took place less than a week before the start of the football World Cup in South Africa and followed a five-day stoppage which ended on Thursday. There was a four-day walkout last week and seven days of stoppages in March.

Citat :
Willie Walsh, chief executive officer al British Airways, a precizat ca operatorul aerian va anunta maine (vineri, n.r.) rezultatele financiare realizate in trimestrul fiscal incheiat pe 30 septembrie, putand afisa primul profit din ultimii doi ani.
Astfel, compania ar putea raporta un profit net de 158,6 milioane de lire sterline (250 mil. dolari) pentru perioada iulie-septembrie 2010, dupa ce anul trecut a fost pe pierdere, conform estimarilor analistilor chestionati de Bloomberg

British Airways a postat ultimul profit in august 2008, chiar inainte de prabusirea Lehman Brothers Holdings, care a determinat o scadere a cererii pentru calatoriile la casa intai.

British Airways este al treilea transportator ca marime din Europa.

Am dat peste niste imagini foarte interesante si ma mira faptul ca cei de la BA au adoptat acest logo pe coada...si mai ales ca scrie Romania pe el. Mai peste tot unde am cautat aeronava dupa inmatriculare....am dat tot de "Romanian Spring". Daca s-a mai dezbatut subiectul acesta imi fac mea culpa.

Nu stiu sa se mai fi discutat.
A fost o initiativa temporara

British Airways’ World Images tail logos, sometimes called ‘Ethnic Tails’ or ‘Project Utopia’ were launched in 1997. Artwork and designs from international artists were used to represent the various nations on the BA route network.

The new images caused an instant furore in the British Press, not helped when former Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher covered the tail fin of a model 747-400 with a handkerchief to hide the image. Air traffic controllers disliked the images as it made identification of BA aircraft more difficult. British Airways’ British passengers disliked the images as they felt they took away from the unique British flavour of the airline.

It came as little surprise that in 1999 Bob Ayling announced that all future repaints would feature the Union Flag image that had initially been intended to be used only on Concorde, however he said that the 170 or so aircraft to have already received World Images would keep them. New chief Rod Eddington dispelled this in 2001 announcing that all aircraft would receive Union Flag tails as soon as possible.

Titlu: Vremea rea ar fi costat British Airways pana la 40 de milioane de lire

Citat :
In cele patru zile in care aeroportul Heathrow din Londra nu a functionat in conditii normale, se estimeaza ca British Airways a pierdut intre 8 si 10 milioane de lire sterline, scrie presa internationala.
Compania opereaza in jur de 550 de zboruri in fiecare zi pe aeroportul Heathrow, dar in cele patru zile, doar o treime din curse au respectat programul de zbor.

Un purtator de cuvant al companiei a declarat ca este prea devreme pentru a face astfel de estimari.

British Airways - 10 momente din ultimul an

Compania aeriana British Airways a anuntat cele mai importante momente ale activitatii sale din ultimul an, saptamana aceasta avand loc fuziunea cu operatorul aerian Iberia.


Boeing 777-300ER pentru curse de lung curierat

British Airways a intrat in posesia aeronavei Boeing 777-300ER pentru curse de lung curier.

Echipata cu noile cabine First, World Traveller Plus si World Traveller, lansate de asemenea anul acesta, aceasta aeronava cu 297 de locuri ofera o configuratie cu patru clase de calatorie, care include si Club World.

Noile cabine World Traveller si World Traveller Plus includ acum noi sisteme de entertainment la bord, care le ofera calatorilor cu 50% mai multe optiuni de filme si dublu de optiuni TV si muzica.


Lansarea unei noi aplicatii pentru telefoanele mobile

In iulie 2010, British Airways a lansat o noua aplicatie de telefonie mobila care le permite clientilor sa economiseasca timp prin realizarea formalitatilor de check-in pe telefoanele tip smartphone.

Carti de imbarcare mobile au putut fi scanate pe telefonul mobil la check-in pentru a accelera si imbunatati procesul de imbarcare. Aceasta facilitate a fost introdusa ulterior pe smartphone-urile Blackberry si cele cu sistem de operare Android.


Terminalul 5 de pe Heathrow inregistreaza clientul cu nr. 50 de milioane

Hub-ul British Airways de pe Aeroportul Heathrow a marcat o noua etapa in momentul in care Terminalul 5 a inregistrat clientul cu nr. 50 de milioane care i-a trecut pragul in acest sezon estival, in cel de-al treilea an de operare.

Potrivit standardelor industriei, British Airways si-a imbunatatit punctualitatea pe Heathrow de la aproximativ 50% in medie pentru plecarile la timp din fiecare luna, atunci cand acestea erau impartite intre Terminalul 1 si Terminalul 4, la aproximativ 80% in medie odata cu mutarea pe Terminalul 5. De multe ori, compania aeriana poate atinge chiar si 90% rata de plecare la timp din Terminalul 5.

Noile rute lansate in ultimele douasprezece luni sunt Chambery, Copenhaga, Frankfurt, Ibiza, Palma (Mallorca), si Stockholm, precum relansarea zborului spre Barcelona.

British Airways opereaza cu 54 mai multe zboruri pe saptamana pe London City Airport comparativ cu ianuarie 2010, iar numarul de rute operate aproape s-a dublat in ultimele 12 luni.


Zboruri operate in sistem codeshare cu Kingfisher

Ca urmare a aderarii Kingfisher Airlines la alianta oneworld, British Airways a anuntat ca va incepe sa opereze zboruri in sistem codeshare cu Kingfisher Airlines, in cadrul unei miscari care reprezinta primul parteneriat de codeshare al British Airways cu o companie aeriana indiana.

Codul British Airways a fost plasat deja pe 11 curse interne din India si pe o ruta spre Sri Lanka operata de Kingfisher Airlines, in timp ce codul Kingfisher Airlines a fost plasat pe noua curse British Airways de la Heathrow spre regiunile Marii Britanii si Europa continentala.


Prima statie durabila de carburanti pentru avioane

In februarie, British Airways si-a dezvaluit in parteneriat cu Solena Group planurile de a crea prima statie durabila de carburanti pentru avioane, cu scopul de a utiliza carburant cu emisii reduse de carbon pentru alimentarea flotei incepand cu 2014.

Noul carburant va fi obtinut din biomasa si produs intr-o instalatie de ultima generatie care poate converti o serie de deseuri in carburant pentru aviatie.

Instalatia independenta va fi situata in estul Londrei si va converti in 500.000 de tone de deseuri in 16 milioane de galoane de combustibil verde pe an, printr-un proces care asigura economii de gaze cu efect de sera pe toata durata ciclului de viata, de pana la 95% comparativ cu kerosenul obtinut din resurse fosile. Acest volum de carburant va fi de doua ori mai mare decat cantitatea necesara pentru operarea neutra din punctul de vedere al carbonului a tuturor zborurilor British Airways din aeroportul din Londra aflat in apropiere.

In plus, British Airways, alaturi de alti actori majori din industria aviatica, Airbus, IATA si Aeroportul Gatwick, au anuntat sustinerea unui proiect in premiera derulat de Cranfield University, referitor la utilizarea algelor pentru producerea de combustibil pentru avioane in cantitati comerciale.


Flying Start

In iunie, British Airways a lansat ‘Flying Start’, un nou parteneriat global de caritate cu Comic Relief, cu angajamentul de a strange pana la 8 milioane de lire pana in 2013 pentru copiii vulnerabili si defavorizati din Marea Britanie si din intreaga lume.


Solutii private

British Airways a lansat un nou serviciu de jet privat – Private Connect – exclusiv pentru clientii British Airways care zboara in America de Nord si Caraibe.

Serviciul ‘PrivateConnect’ le ofera clientilor acces `pay-by-the-trip’ (plata pentru fiecare calatorie) la o retea de aeronave private operate de CitationAir si de compania sa mama, Cessna Aircraft Company.

Un serviciu de inregistrare online si un numar de telefon dedicat le permit clientilor BA facilitatea „pay and go” prin card de credit, evitand astfel angajamentul pe termen lung si taxele in avans asociate in mod normal cu inchirierea de avioane private.


Lansarea noii cabine First Class

Noua cabina First de la British Airways a fost inaugurata in februarie 2010, in urma unei investitii de 100 de milioane de lire.

Cabina are la baza un design clasic si un lux discret, ce include un pat cu 60% mai lat in dreptul umerilor, un ecran video de 15”, un dulap personal.

Designul noii cabine a fost inspirat de marcile britanice premium si a fost adaptat la tendintele contemporane pentru a crea o experienta privata intima la bordul aeronavei.

In centrul designului in culorile bleu Quink si crem se afla un pat mai lat, cu o saltea „inteligenta” si asternut din bumbac egiptean cu 400 de fire.

Introducerea noii cabine First Class a British Airways va continua si va fi finalizata in 2012.

British Airways si Iberia incheie un acord comun cu American Airlines

Anul trecut British Airways si Iberia au primit aprobarea din partea Uniunii Europene si a Departamentului pentru Transport din Statele Unite in scopul incheierii unui acord comun transatlantic cu American Airlines, oferindu-le clientilor acces extins la o retea globala de peste 500 de destinatii, tarife reduse si conexiuni mai convenabile.

Acest acord va oferi de asemenea mai multe avantaje calatorilor frecventi care vor putea castiga si cheltui mile pe zborurile BA, Iberia si American de peste Atlantic.

Acordul le va permite companiilor aeriene sa lanseze noi rute, care nu erau pana acum viabile pentru o singura companie aeriana, precum si o noua ruta de la Heathrow la San Diego, printr-un zbor ce va fi lansat pe 1 iunie.


British Airways a fuzionat cu Iberia

Operatorii aerieni British Airways si Iberia, care au fuzionat luna aceasta, isi vor pastra individual brandurile si vor avea retele complementare ce vor opera din 2 hub-uri din Europa.

Fuziunea va aduce companiei formate, International Airlines Group (IAG), sinergii anuale de 400 milioane euro incepand din al cincilea an.

Noua companie nou formata va fi listata la Bursa de Valori din Londra. International Airlines Group va transporta peste 62 de milioane de pasageri catre peste 250 de destinatii.

Ca urmare a combinarii retelei extinse a British Airways spre America de Nord si Asia, cu reteaua Iberia de zboruri spre America Latina, clientii vor avea acum o mai mare varietate de destinatii si frecvente de zbor. Sediul noii companii va fi la Londra, iar intalnirile Consiliului de Administratie vor avea loc la Madrid.

Nu obișnuiesc să stau să comentez pe marginea știrilor de genul acesta, dar asta parcă este prea de tot. Băiatul acesta care se numește jurnalist a luat textul cu copy/paste dintr-un comunicat de presă al BA (eu de exemplu l-am găsit aici) și i-a dat lui Google Translate de lucru două secunde, ca să facă un nou copy/paste. Dacă tot era "pă net" putea să dea o fugă și până la Dictionary.com să vadă în ce sens a fost folosit în acest text "sustainable": (səˈsteɪnəbəl) — adj [...] (of economic development, energy sources, etc) capable of being maintained at a steady level without exhausting natural resources or causing severe ecological damage, pentru că eu altfel înțeleg că au făcut o stație de carburanți probabil din tablă care, spre deosebire de una făcută din carton, este mult mai durabilă... Și culmea, au fost și primii...

Și dacă tot suntem la capitolul dicționare, putea chiar să se uite pe DEX online pentru definiția lui "curierat": s.n. Activitate a curierului. [Pr.: -ri-e-] – Curier + suf. -at. Mă opresc aici. Cred că ajunge.

Titlu: PICTURES: British Airways to celebrate Royal Wedding with special liveries
Sursa: flightglobal.com
Autor: Michael Targett
Data: 01.04.2011

Citat :
UK flag carrier British Airways has announced it will celebrate the forthcoming Royal Wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton with a series of special Royal portrait liveries on a selection of its airliners.

The six aircraft, dubbed "The Royal Fleet", will feature portraits of different members of the British Royal Family emblazoned on the tails of the aircraft.

The details of the members of the Royal Family appearing on specific aircraft are as follows:

Prince William - G-CIVZ
Catherine Middleton - G-CIVW
Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II - G-EUXN
His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales - G-VIIV
Prince Harry - G-VIIU
Duke of Edinburgh - G-EUOA

In anticipation of the creation of The Royal Fleet, British Airways commissioned renowned Norwegian artist Dr Olaf Olisapy to design the bespoke tail portraits with a modern artistic interpretation to reflect the new generation of British monachs.

This follows his well-received work in 2007, portraying Norwegian heroes on the tails of Norwegian Air Shuttle aircraft.

Controversially, Camilla the Duchess of Cornwall has not been included in the list of Royal portraits to appear on the BA aircraft. British Airways claims capping the number of featured Royals at six is simply a matter of livery material and design economics, rather than a deliberate slight of the Duchess of Cornwall.

Jake Bigo, Head of Livery Design for British Airways said: "We have a limited amount of resources set aside for this job so we had to draw the line somewhere. Otherwise we face the prospect of running out of paint halfway through Camilla's face."

The press office at Buckingham Palace declined to comment on the decision to exclude Camilla from The Royal Fleet.

British Airways believes The Royal Fleet could spark a craze of themed liveries to coincide with National events.

BA's Jake Bigo said: "We wanted to do something very visual to mark the significance of this national event. Having seen the popularity of the Royal Mail's 'themed postage stamp' campaigns, we were keen to take a similar approach."

"We already have plans to mark the London 2012 Olympics with portraits of Team GB athletes," said Bigo. "But we've had to scrap our plans to feature national hero and celebrity mollusc Paul the Octopus following his untimely demise."

BA will unveil The Royal Fleet at a ceremony at London Heathrow on 31st April 2011.
