Have a look at that, another Japanese comic. But this time very cheaply made. A large sticker with pure white background on JALs off white fuselage. Imho JAL´s worst logojet until now, looking very unprofessional.

It doesn't look nearly as bad as you described it.

I guess there's not exactly tons of spare cash floating about at JAL to make it any better...

You do realise that is a 773 and not a 77W?

But I do agree that it's rather cheap looking. I'm not a big fan of JAL's comic liveries.

Imho it looks as cheap as an Aldi poster on a Mercedes. They didnt bother for the background to match the plane. If they would have chosen a red background, in fact any colour but white it would have been better. White on off-white is one of a designer´s basic sins.

I´m not taking who´s on it, I´m talking about the way it was done. They could have put Megan Fox or the Pope on it, it would have looked rubbish the way ttey did it here.

That picture shows the lack of raked wingtips very clearly.

And... they would only put this on a domestic aircraft!

You know the decal does seam too match the engines.


But I agree that decal looks cheap, tacky, and I would take it off because it is a massacre on JALs brand to offer a sub par product! The decal would look great if it was only the proper shade of
white.

Raked wingtips, for one, already mentioned.
And of course the massive GE90s as compared to the puny Pratts (in this case) or Rollers...

I was watching Doraemon the moment I clicked on that photo! I'm a great lover of Doraemon and despite their problems currently, I'm glad they still made the effort to have a promo jet. Would definitely love to fly on it someday. Hopefully ANA can come out one Doraemon jet like what they did with the Pokemon jet!

Maybe a clear background. Prefer no sticker at all. How does the expansion and contraction of the airplane factor in to such a large adhesive decal?

And if you could see the cabin interior you would quickly be able to tell the difference. JL 773s used on mainly on domestic routes have a high=density 500 seat layout with 10-abreast in Y (78 J 8-abreast and 422 Y 10-abreast). That's more than twice as many seats as in one of their 77W layouts which only has 246 seats in 4 classes. The other has 272 seats. JL 773 and 77W seat maps below.

They should have washed the rest of the plane. New rumor: This indicates JAL take over by Air France
