The first B777-300ER painted it the SKYTEAM livery was delivered to AF last June 2nd.
It is Air France's 55th B777 and 28th B77W.
All the celebrations and festivities planned at CDG for his event were of course canceled considering the situation.




F-GZNE is the 5th aircraft painted in this special SkyTeam color-scheme after :

Interesting to see that only widebodies will get the livery in the next few months. OK's ATR is quite an oddball in comparison.

Air France was planing to paint a second aircraft from the A320 family in this Skyteam livery (an A319 if I remember correctly).
Don't if they decided yet whether they will finally do it or not.

That bumps the 767-400ER as the prettiest SkyTeam plane.

Just gorgeous.

Wasn't an A330 supposed to get the Sky Team Colors as well? Or maybe I mis-read it wrong?

No. You probably mis-read with the first A330 to wear the "new" AF colorscheme (F-GZCL)

Will this be a -200 or a -300?

I actually really like it on the 762... less "open space". The ATR however...  thumbsdown 

Funny to see the entire 767 family represented in skyteam colours (762, 763 and 764)  bigthumbsup

Just a text from the flight deck, Air France 373 Victor just started engines at PAE, for the long trip home to CDG.

What's the difference? Apart from the airline name, the liveries look identical to me.

The livery is identical, of course, but I guess Stitch means it suits the B77W even better than the B764ER.

I would really like to see now an A320 family aircraft wearing these nice colors ... and not only widebodies (and ATR)

I believe the 777 is the best-looking airliner in revenue service today (followed by the A340).

I must honestly say that the 762 is a bit a of a SLUF in my eyes... the 764 is perfect, fuselage, tail fin have just the right proportions, and the raked wingtips are the cherries on the cake  cloudnine 

I wish KL had decided to paint one of their 772's in ST livery... But it's cheaper to have it on their 4th 77W straight out of the factory I guess.

IMHO the 777 has got nothing on the a345, 744 and MD11, but I see your point  Wink

Well, since DL is still repainting the NW 744's, that would be one of the best candidates
 Smile

I don't think freighters will be painted in an alliance livery, correct? Otherwise a new KE 747-8F would absolutely shine in ST livery  bouncy
