Boeing and Air Berlin have applied the innovative paint design of the Boeing 7E7 Dreamliner to a new Air Berlin 737
Why in the hell would they do that?
The only thing I can think of as a reason for Boeing to paint an aircraft in the "7E7" colors, would be if they became the new Boeing House Colors and thats only on a new aircraft like the 777-200LR or 737-900ER (If it's made).

The Press release:
Boeing [NYSE: BA] today unveiled in Seattle an Air Berlin Next-Generation 737-700 carrying the dynamic blue and white livery previously shown only on the all-new Boeing 7E7. This 737 will anchor marketing activities involving Boeing and Air Berlin, details of which will be provided at the July Farnborough Air Show, and allow Boeing to showcase the technologically advanced Next-Generation 737 in an exciting way. Boeing painters used innovative painting techniques from the automotive industry to create the unique color scheme. Air Berlin takes delivery of the 737 later this month.
I think it looks great. Hopefully Boeing will secure more 7E7 orders at the Farnborough show this year. I aslo hope that Embraer secures more 170 orders at the show.

Yeah, I don't get it either. What is the point?
It is a nice livery (on the 7E7) and I have nothing against Air Berlin, but why put them together?
Is this sort of like JAS "stealing" the Airbus house livery and using it for their own?

I don´t know if anybody has the same feeling, but I can´t help thinking that Air Berlin might go longhaul and announce a B7E7 order shortly.
They are already Germany´s #2 carrier and might want to go head-on with LH/DE/LT on longhaul-leisure destinations. AB is just now building up a very good feeder network through their CityShuttle operations.
I would be delighted....
Just my 2 cents. Any other thoughts???
Keep smiling - you might be on Radar!
: Holy Crap, that's one hell of a sweet looking plane!!! That Boeing livery is gorgeous!!!
: Looks *VERY* nice. I wouldn't mind seeing that plane (or a 7E7) at MSP!
: All Boeing protypes from now on should wear that livery!!
: Looks fantastic......Boeing should consider painting some of their other aircraft in this livery!!!
: Damn, that 737 in the 7E7 colors is one sexy beast! Sheesh.......

: I'm at a loss for words. It is beautiful. I'm heading down to BFI on friday to see it
: Awesome! When will it arrive in Germany? Why gets AB new 737-700? - information needed. Maybe they consider to buy the 7E7 - they had a profit of 170.
: My god, thats beautiful. I'm suprised it wasn't on a bigger aircraft *more advertising surface*. I'd expect a 777-200 or 767-400
: Wow! That looks very good. It is what United should have strived for. Instead of that unispired mess they went with. Jeremy

: Is there ever a time when there is no rain forecasted in Seattle? But anyways, this is a sweet looking livery.
: That picture must have been taken Sunday night, and if so is then the ramp is 'artificially' wet. The weather has been nice for a week or so ...

: Could it be someone just takes a hose to the ramp and soak it??
: I think it looks pretty sharp!!!!!!! Would love to see it here at MSP.
