Fantastic!
It's very nice to see the 9W colours on a widebody, very classy IMO.
Can't wait to them in EWR... might have to make a special trip down to catch them.

Cheers,
Kaz

Indeed it was, and THANKs a lot Unique, for giving us a slice of the 9W 340. Well I dont care what others may say but that Bird with Jet colours looks very sober and graceful. Cheers to 9W.......  blush 


JOY



If it wasn't for AI and those money mongers sitting in the parliament, 9W would have been as big as SQ...:(

Great picture, I was waiting to see the 340 in the new livery. I guess this should be the first airbus in 9W's fleet after the 35 Boeings and 8 ATR's. Isn't it the first A340 in India's tricolor? So, it is very special.

I have a question here. I just did a search on its previous registration here (ZS-SXD) on a.net and only two pictures popped up. This aircraft was apparently painted in November 2004 in new SAA colors (6 months ago?) and now its being sold/leased to 9W? Whats up with that? Does anyone know?

Here are both of those pictures:

Heard that SA got a great deal from Airbus which thy just couldn't resist. But later I guess they didn't want to use those aircraft. I could be wrong though. Seems like they thought they could make more money leasing it out.

Nice pic and nice livery!

In my view, this livery makes the A340 look slimmer and the engines look a lot less like hairdryers.



Never argue with idiots. They will bring you down to their level, and beat you with experience.

I just love the elegance a classic livery brings. Schemes with window lines make the few A340s that wear them look exceptionally sharp!

Very nice to see an airline that keeps their nice livery and doesn't switch to a boring white fuselage for a change! How refreshing!  yes

9W offered SAA more money (significantly above market rates) to sub-lease the aircraft for 2 years than SAA was paying Airbus. Since SAA is currently running operationally negative, the sound financial decision was to simply sublease the aircraft out and make more money doing that than by operating them in the current environment with high fuel prices.

They'll be only used on London-Brussels-Bombay routes?

What about Paris, Francfort, New Delhi...? Any info?

Personnally I find the livery a bit boring but I've read it's a very good airline.

Like NYC777 said, I can't wait to see 9W in 777 or 787 colors either. But this A340 looks absolutely stunning in 9W colors as well. Can't wait to see it in person.

Is this aircraft going to fly the US route? If so, as much as I dislike flying the 343s , I will give them a try next year..just because of their awesome inflight service.

Cheers to 9W

I agree with you. The livery is boring. Looks like SQ plane with an "Broken Egg" logo in the tail... but.. it is one of the best airlines I have ever flown.
Their domestic service is amazing. The staff is genuinly friendly on land and on-board. When you start approaching their counter they start smiling and the smiles never stop. When we had delays (due to the famours Delhi fog) they were coming to the lounge frequently and updating the passengers, one by one, about the status of the delay. The planes are all new, the food is excellent (provided by SQ catering according to the label) and they always had a choice of vegetarian and non-veg meals for each passenger in coach. You get meals even in flights that last 45minutes.
I am so happy that they finaly got the chance to fly internationaly. India needed such an airline to represent them.

This is a fantastic looking aircraft. I've always liked the 9W livery - it just goes to show that 'eurowhite' is not always the way forward. This is genuine class.
