    Am I the only one who thinks the livery is just too little colour for so much fuselage?

    Too much white.
    They've over sized the speedmarque to compensate, but the balance just isn't there.
    The tail colours just don't stand out enough. The belly is not high enough to make up for the larger fuselage.
    Basically, this livery was clearly never intended for such a large aircraft.

    Other than that though, congrats to BA on the new toy

      I also think it could do with a little more colour on it but to me, most of all, all BA's aircraft need a proper Speedbird on them!

        One of the BA A-380s can be seen clearly from the Eastern Perimeter Road, near where it meets the Northern Perimeter Road. Registration not clearly in view; last seen on Sunday 07 July 2013.

        Also BA 787 G-ZBJA can be seen close up from Envoy Avenue; last seen on Sunday 07 July 2013.

          Well I kinda agree. As many of its competitors BA has too much white and an obvious lack of imagination.
          The previous c/s was much better IMHO

            Air France, QANTAS, Lufthansa, Malaysian all have more white.

            The pic in the OP is not a good one to be judging the livery as the aircraft is over exposed and bleached.

            Just glad they didn't keep the ghastly grey Landor livery which folks seem to forget how dull that grey was especially when fresh.
