Will this be a one off plane or all their new 744s?? I really like it!

You think Boeing are paying them to have larger letters for the Boeing than the airline name! Smile/happy/getting dizzy

anyone know why CAL switched engine choices?

I know previous 744Pax aircraft had PW and their 744F had GE, maybe GE was a better engine?

It's awesome. I love the way the tail design blends into the fuselage design, very classy livery indeed!

Yes, it's definitely very whale-like. I mean, the 747 looks like a whale anyway, but those colors really bring it out! Looks great, though.

Wow great to see it on the 747! There's a slight comment I have to make though.. lol To me that pink on the Hibiscus? flower looks out of place against the blues of the fuselage, however the lavender right under the flower is just perfect.

CI dumped Pratt with their recent 747s because Ge simply offered them a deal they couldn't refuse (GE;s recent pricing philosophy has been to almost give away engines with almost no profit and making up by charging exorbitant spares prices) and they were unhappy with P& W over its response to the surge problems on their MD11s.
Another possible political factor may have also been the Taiwanese governments unhappiness with Pratt. The airline is still majority owned by a government controlled entity. The airforce lost a F16 due to misassembly of a subasssembly by Pratt (they pulled the subassembly to check it out as it was a new supplier and it was reinstalled wrongly before delivery). Pratt have refused any compensation as a foreign military sale usually comes with no warranty.

Not as good as I expected, the tail does not match the body. Thye should have done like the other carriers and only had the name on the aircraft, not the tail design.

G'day

GREAT looking airplane - except the tail. They should have continued the "flow" of the color scheme.

Whoa, absolutely stunning I say!!! Is this one of the 744s with the new 777 interiors, because I remember hearing CI ordering the first ones (non-ER)?

All new Boeing wideboddies have the Boeing signature interior now. This one definately has it. That Dreamliner scheme is great. Another reason why the 747 is the most beautiful airplane ever

30 Andrewuber : I agree. I think the tail looks great!
31 Airgeek12 : WOW!! Boeing's new colors are awsome!!!
32 Post contains images AvObserver : I concur with you all - one gorgeous bird in this scheme. The whale analogy fits and in this case, that's not a dig. In profile, it does remind me of
33 Ha763 : I hope CI sends this aircraft to HNL before they change the livery back to normal. CI does fly the 744 5x a week to HNL. BTW, it's a plum blossom.
34 ZK-NBT : Looking good I say! Pity they don't fly to AKL.
35 Aapilot2b : Well, like everyone else, I agree this is a magnificent scheme on a beautiful airplane. I really can't wait to see it from some other angels and close
36 Sn26567 : Sorry to disagree, but these colours look much better in a 737-800 (Air Berlin or Ryanair) than on a 747-400. With the upper deck of the 747 there is
37 Warren747sp : They are going to use the new 744 on Lax routes only. I was in Boeing plant about a month ago watching the 3 744 on order being built for CI. I asked
38 Na : Nice looking. And a nice marketing idea from Boeing to ask clients to operate aircraft as Boeing-billboards. I agree though the scheme looks best on t
39 Alasdaironeil : Hello Nice, cool, stunning. The blue is a very comforting colour on this jet, and i think blends well with the pink china airlines livery on the tail.
40 Leviticus : This is beautiful, what a wonderful piece of art ! Can't wait to see it flying !
41 Post contains images Udo : That looks really cool. Let's hope they don't sink it somewhere in a harbor...wouldn't be good PR for both parties! Regards Udo
42 Greaser : Once again, Boeing has stunned us all at their new scheme... Very good, but i can't wait for the 777-200LR to roll out in those colors..
43 UK_Dispatcher : It looks fantastic, except that I prefer the dreamliner tail, with the airline name & logo, as opposed to the actual carrier's tail design.
44 Cruzinaltitude : Stunning. Just plain stunning. Its just a damn shame I live so close to LAX and will get to see this B E A utiful bird come in right by In and Out!

52 Leon8828 : Gorgeous ! ! Kudos to the photographer.
53 Captover : I just saw that last week on the tour of Boeing's Everett facility. It was parked at the end of the line in the building and looked amazing. Unfortuna

68 767-332ER : Neat way of doing it...having the Boeing livery and then the customer's tail. I like that very much so. 7E7, WE CANT WAIT FOR YOUUUUUUUUUUUUU!!!
69 Bluewave 707 : Looks better than the 73Gs ... those should have kept the tail livery, like this CI 744. Wonder if CI will use it for its TPE-NRT-HNL run (CAL018/017)
