Evening A.Netters,

I was just browsing through some photos, and on the front page, was what looked like A Gulf Air Boeing 737-200 in the new livery, this confused me slightly so i opened up the picture for a better look at it. Upon opening it, i realised that it isn't Gulf Air at all, it is Regional Paraguaya.

Their livery is practically identical to Gulf Air's one.

- They have used the exact same shade of blue for the engines, titles and the stripe (cheatline?) as Gulf Air

- The second stripe (cheatline?) is practically the same silvery/goldish colour

- The design of the bird is almost the same (apart from the fact it has one less wing, and doesn't have any claws)

- The whole livery is practically 100% the same.

How can they do this? Are they working with Gulf Air? What do the guys at Gulf Air think about it, if they even know? Is this legal?

Definately a rip-off. Enforcing it 8,000 miles away in a tiny country is not very likely though.


I'd rather shoot BAD_MOTIVE

The airline has debuted a new livery on their website which keeps the eagle but changes the colors.

Looks like the colors in the photo will not be on the plane very long. An expensive lesson.

Interesting history for the aircraft - Lufthansa, RyanAir, LAN and now REP.

Quite stupid really, did they really think practically copying another airlines livery was actually a good idea, and that it would work?

Also, not the best information, but i saw it had been noted on Wikipedia that they have "copied" Gulf Air.

Yes, indeed it appears that this will be the actual livery:
