Is that because the 7E7 is just an elongated 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).

It's parked at BFI, I saw it on the way to work. Unfortunatly it's parked so I only could see the tail. It has the Air Berlin titles on a blue tail - that's pretty much all I could see.

Slightly beside topic: I though that 737s didn't have the eyebrow-windows anymore?

Back on topic: hmm... doesn't really knock me off my seat... but looks ok.

...and why does Air Berlin get factory-fresh B737-700s? I thought they only have B737-700s leased from Hamburg International?

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.

Get ready for all of the 'wavy-gravy' haters to make their feelings known on this one.

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?



None shall pass!!!!

It's such a better livery than the current one. They should keep this 7E7 look, it's beautiful! (it looks actually even better than on the 7E7 itself!)

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???

KA.
