Fuss over British Airways report: ‘It’s English Airways’

It is inconceivable to many Welshmen that British Airways wishes the success of the English team, while it is an airline of all Great Britain. The suggestion to change the name to English Airways became a trending topic on Twitter on Saturday. Even politicians joined (see below).

The tweet was posted by British Airways as the airline is the official partner of England’s rugby team. Although it had no English nationalist intent, it struck a nerve. The Welsh (and Scots) feel they are second-class citizens.

In addition, British Airways has long been criticized for not being in the name of the airline by focusing its activities on London. For example, KLM flies to many more regional airports in Great Britain than British Airways. This is the reason why the company is also called London Airways.
