Quoting YULYMX (Thread starter): airlines avaing between 150 up to 800 planes in a fleet must spent a fortune on new livery...
Not necessarily. The aircraft will have to be repainted at some point, anyway. Although there is a cost involved in changing the livery, it's not as though they're stripping each plane down and repainting them all at the same time. They simply wait until the individual aircraft is due for a repaint, and change it then.
