Thank you for the detailed explanation. When it comes to the financial ins/outs of Airlines, I am a “layman”. BA was always an airline to be respected in the 70s & 80s, and it should remain that way. Like many people on this forum, I remember the day the late “Maggie” draped a scarf over the tailplane of a model BA aircraft. The original colour scheme was recognised world-wide,and it did not become BA to look like the “flying colors of a well known American carrier”.
