No. Non credo che ci sianno probleme di soldi.
I wouldn't bet for any further reason, but i guess that airplane painting does not depend only on new liveries, painters' wills and calendars. Airplanes are painted only during a “big stop” entertainment, and this is not that often.
Da noi, nella Spagna, Aviaco was absorbed by Iberia Sept. 1st 1999. Today, April 7th, six months and seven days later, AYC colors are still flying. Oughta tell that AYC's fleet was less than 20 A/Cs..., and that some of them had already been re-painted BEFORE sept.1st.

Yes I belive they will paint all aircrafts in their new livery. However SAS have decided to buy new aircrafts like A340/330 and A321. Their "old" B767/300 however I'm not shure they will repaint, since they will no longer remain in the fleet after receiving the Airbus aircrafts.
The repainting of all MD are doing well, and all B737-600/700/800 are all delivered in the new SAS livery.

Yeah, it is taking SAS ages to paint its MD90s/Dc9s. When I was at Oslo, Stockholm and Copenhagen airports, I hardly saw any of these types in the new colours. And all the ones I see approching London LHR are still in the old colours. Forget about seeing a B767 in the new colours, they just wont do it as they are going to finish with them sometime in 2001/2002.
If you think SAS are taking it slow, take a look at Cathay Pacific - quite often I see one of their B747-400s in the old colours, and its been almost 6 years since they launched their new colours!

2 of the 13 B767-383ER will be repainted in the new delivery during 2000. This is what www.sasflightops.com says about it:
"11 JAN 2000
SAS will rebuild the cabin on 6 of our 767’s in year 2000. The cabin will be rebuilt to a two-cabin configuration, instead of the three-cabin configuration we have today, with the new interior. We will have 11 seats less in C-class and 25 seats more in M-class. Further the VCC will be moved from the left side to the middle of the cabin. Two of the A/C will be repainted in the new SAS colors during the modification.
