Latest installment in the tale of the tails

What can we read into the halting of the British Airways repainting programme? Rumours that the tails were no longer getting the Newell and Sorrell treatment were confirmed by BA.

Surely the new concept can’t have proved that unpopular? Panic not, the world’s favourite airline is just too busy to pull any aircraft off the runway so the process has been suspended over the summer.

And just to prove its point, the BA press office has been hard at work sending out pictures of the newly revamped Concorde.

The paint job will be accelerated at the end of the summer season, we are promised.

The new livery is “very much on track” and any comments to the contrary are “nonsense”, huffs a BA spokesman.
