Can someone please explain to me the differences in tail art design on some of PIA's widebodies?

Thanks

A little off topic, I know, but does anyone know if they plan on changing all their tails into the Provinces of Pakistan tails? I know all the 772's are still in the wavy flag..

Glad to see the wavy flag go! From a distance it looked only like a blob on the tail.

I liked the first attempt PK made with the native design...like this short-lived monochromatic green...

Me too, but not as much as I like their current tail designs.

I like them very much indeed.

They remind me of the two 'Delftblue Daybreak' tail arts we had on the BA planes a few years back, of which I sorely miss.

Hmm..

PK's new tails have often been compared to BA's world tails, and, in general, they aren't too similar, but those two examples sure do remind me of the PK tails..


Good analysis!  Big grin
