Quoting BA319-131 (Reply 1): I thought them might have put some red on the engines if only the website address, they look kind of dull compared to the plane - and I love Rollers! Smile
I agree, but knowing AK, they won't leave it like that for long; they're usually very imaginative with their liveries.
Also, while the fuselage painting is obviously done at AIrbus, this is presumably something that was done before the engines were delivered. Without being 100% sure, I would not think this would be something RR would do. I'd expect AirAsia to do some decals on the engine before it enters service.
Isn't it amazing how well an aircraft looks with just a simple red and white livery.

We do not seem to have access to anyone with inside knowledge, who can tell us the things we would like to know about this airline.
We are pleased to see the first of their own planes in the air. Now it would be good to see the interior, and the revolutionary new seats, that give tourist passengers more individual space in a plane that is fitted with up to 400 seats. We are all wondering if we will fit into one of those seats for 9 hours between OOL/MEL and KUL.
When the A340 comes online, you might wonder if the aircraft will have the same seating as the A330s for 13 hour flight to Europe? If AAX offer really good fares between Australia and Europe some people will be prepared to try them, but 24 hours as a sardine will be a bit trying.

So, for the time being, the A333s will be used only for Oceania-KUL and intra-Asian sectors and European destinations will be launched only when the A340s are added to the fleet?
