British Airways is the flag carrier of the United Kingdom, and it is the largest British airline by fleet size and second by traffic after easyJet.  The British Airways brand emerged in 1972 when the UK government merged state-owned BOAC and BEA.  In 1987 the company was privatized.  BA, as the company is more commonly known, is a founder member of the oneworld Alliance.

  • BA has been a long time key Boeing customer
  • Since 2000, there have been significant fleet shifts
