British Airways‘ callsign is famous, “Speedbird.” Many assume that Speedbird is a reference to the airline flying Concorde, however this is incorrect. Speedbird is a reference to the logo first used by British Airways’ predecessor airline Imperial Airways, in 1932. The logo was adopted by BOAC and it was BOAC who chose Speedbird as the airline callsign. When BOAC merged with BEA to create British Airways, two years prior to the introduction of Concorde, the airline retained the callsign of Speedbird.
