My thoughts are that CX will paint the un-finished paint part in the bottom in a few months to the regular look. I don't think it will last that long because it doesn't even look as if it was a special scheme.

Just to reiterate. Many comments on this photo seem to indicate that it is the 100th aircraft for the combined fleet if Cathay, Dragonair, and Air Hong Kong.
