It’s Sunday again, so it must be time for some more Airplane Art.
This week, it’s a two-for-one, with a British Airways Airbus A321 taking off and a Cathay Pacific Boeing 777-300ER taxiing at London Heathrow Airport.
British Airways utilises the Airbus A321 on short to medium-haul operations, serving alongside the Airbus A319, Airbus A320, Airbus A320neo and Airbus A321neo. Meanwhile, Cathay Pacific operates the Airbus A330-300, Airbus A350-900, Airbus A350-1000 and Boeing 777-300 its medium to long haul operation.
Both are members of the Oneworld Alliance.
The Cathay Pacific Boeing 777-300ER – B-KPJ is currently stored, with the aircraft going into storage in September 2020. It joined the Cathay Pacific fleet in January 2009 was leased to the airline. The aircraft has not returned to service since stored.
As for the British Airways A321, sadly, this could not be identified from the photos I have of it.
