Could ident this font please. Thank you very much.
Reminds me a tiny bit of the typeface Jeremy Tankard designed for the updated logo of -the now defunct- Sabena Airlines, though that was obviously a very bold version. See in the Design section under Sabena. BTW The FontFont remark was meant to be a joke, as the chopped off bit of text made for a typical FontFont name: FF TheBea. Maybe a Luc(as) de Groot design, the feminine equivalent to FF TheSans, TheSerif and TheMix?
Yeah, I know, that's not very funny...
well, I don't know the font, but I can name the phrase hinted at here: "Off the beaten path." Which, coincidentally, is what the font in question likely is.
Linotype calls it Veto, Berthold calls it Evo. It's close enough to the first sample that I would wager that British Airways magazine commissioned it as a display weight. I believe the British music mag Q used Evo for a while, too...

It occurred to me that since it was spotted being used by British Airways, it might be a proprietary face used solely by them. Through a little sleuthing I found out that there is a proprietary face that was developed for British Airways called Mylius. The sample seen here isn't close to the font in question, but supposedly there is a sans as well; unfortunately, I couldn't find any more information about the font or any more samples of it. Caveat: the font was adopted ten years ago (I think); BA may have changed direction since then.
Hi Yves, thanks for your help. The Font is released so far. I saw him in the British Airways Magazine
Thanks for your help. But i don't think that it is the veto or evo.
Thought for a second it was Beta Sans, but nope. This one is rounder. Looks like it could've been something by Hans Reichel. Maybe it's an announcement for a new yet-to-be-released FontFont? If I may be so bald (!) to inquire, where did you get that sample from?
