The 747 Frost rides to the USA has a BOAC logo on its tail, but the text on the side clearly says British Airways. British Airways had several 747-100 series aircraft with this hybrid livery (tail numbers G-AWNB, D, E, F, H, I, J and M).

When Frost and Nixon meet for the first time at La Casa Pacifica, Nixon says, "See you in March," referring to the interviews. Later in the scene Frost writes a $200,000 check to Nixon, and dates it 3/17/75. He could have post-dated the check, to make sure he didn't pay for canceled interviews.
