Winglet Markings On The B747-400 Double Sided

Hi, this is not a significant incident of any sort, but I had a question as to winglet markings.

JL and NH,painted a few B747-400 (a couple years into operation) with winglet paintings on both sides of the winglets, (pax side as well).

I just flew on a CX B747-400 a couple of weeks ago and noticed that the plane did not have winglet paintings visible from the cabin, but only on the outside of the plane.

Now, I would like to find out which airlines have the double sided winglet paintings on the B747-400 (I know that the A330/340 and CRJ's, etc do have winglets) and I would like to compile a list for B747-400 with double-sided winglet paintings for my own interest.

If anyone knows other airlines with these double sided winglets, and why some airlines stopped this tradition? For instance, the B747-400 on CX had these double sided winglets on their old color scheme, but I noticed that they don't have them anymore on their new livery.

Thanks in advance.

The first one is QF, and the second one is LH

But while looking at the photos, I see far more Asian carriers having it (KE, BR, JL, NH, SQ, etc), but no CX. I heard that in the case of Japan, passengers really liked this experiment and there was high demand for all aircrafts with winglets to be painted with double sided winglets. I really like this because whenever I see the mark on the winglets from the cabins, I feel like I am flying on that airline. I also think this leads to higher brand image and many airlines should do it) Well, but it can lead to the extra money of fuel to carry the winglet painting

(I included each with one from One World and one from Star Alliance so nobody states that one is superior over the other)

Thanks in advance.
