It's more likely to be the first 777-300ER for Air India.

Nope, that should be AI's first 77W. Their 77Ls have red nacelles and a red rudder, as well.

They are not due to start flying until November '08 so it might be a little early.They haven't yet got the permission to fly to the US either. The name for this part of the Virgin Blue group is going to be released shortly. The short list is: Matilda Blue, Australia Blue and Australia Airlines and V. Australia Airlines.

Probably early Fall 2008 assuming they start operations as planned.

Not to mention that DJ aircraft (including Pacific Blue) actually have white rudders with a blue stripe on the rudder edge.  Wink

I doubt it will carry the Australia Airlines name considering Qantas have rights to the name...

Wasn't it Australian Airlines? Regardless, I agree they are unlikely to go with something so close to a name that only recently left the market.

because the agreement that the Virgin group have with SQ is that the Virgin name may not be used for international flights based out of Australia - it is a shame because I think it would be a great name

Thanks for the links!

Think Australia Blue sounds like the best name.

I guess we'll find out soon.

When I first saw that I was thinking, uh, thats a 744. But I agree, seems a little too early for their first T7. They just announced it what maybe 3 months ago? (I think it takes that long to just make a T7)

Just my thoughts.

You just have to love these types of pictures!!!! So much to look at. The 747LCF and the 777's etc etc. Can't wait to see Air India's new livery on the 77W. Will look fantastic! I always enjoy seeing new liveries on the 777's.

Couldn't that 777-300ER be one of the leased birds for TAM Brasil? Weren't they due to receive some from a major lessor relatively soon and then start receiving their own sometime in the future?

Try: Matilda Blue; V Australia Airlines; Australia Blue; Virgin Pacific; Amelia Blue; Didgeree Blue (my favourite); Liberty Blue; Virgin Australia.

My entry, "Big Blue" didn't get in. Sigh.

From the green tinge in the rudder I'd say it'd be Air Canada. Correct me if I'm wrong though.

That would be AC's. Flickr is blocked here at work so I cannot check, but I think it is a 77W, actually. I believe both of their 77Ls are in full colors.


25 Albird87 : Its not a 77W as its too short. definately a 772/L. Out of interest still, how many 772s are there still to come out of the plant?? mostly now 77Ws a

33 Buck3y3nut : its definitely AI...
34 Post contains links Stitch : AI is going to an even newer livery then what is on their current 77Ls, which has the red extending all the way up the rudder: http://pib.nic.in/arch
35 Flyjetstar : Yes sorry about that. There were a couple of lists floating round and obviously that one came up short!
