      Here’s G-CIVB touching down in Phoenix night before last as BA289. Two hours later she was BA288 on the way home to LHR, with me aboard!

      Given that she’s over 25 years old she wasn’t in bad shape, but no, not updated except for the seats. Didn’t matter much. I took an ambien just before we took off and I slept for almost 7 of the 9.5 hours anyway...

      Nice. The closest I've been is seeing G-EUPJ (A319/BEA)and G-BNLY (B744/Landor) on the ground at LHR as I was leaving for GVA. We've had G-EUPJ in GVA a couple times but I've been out of the country.

      Yep!
      The Negus was, is and will be my
      favourite British Airways scheme.
      Looks always elegant!
