The "Union Flag" Challengers

The adoption of Utopia/world tail livery was seen as a move away from the traditional British image of the carrier. This rebranding was unpopular with many traditionalists in the UK.
Virgin Atlantic tried to took advantage of the controversy by applying a Union flag and slogan Britain's Flag Carrier scheme to the front end of its aircraft. In their own 1999 relaunch, the flag was also applied to the vertical winglets of Virgin Atlantic's aircraft.
