With GA announcing they will be deploying their NEW B77W on the CGK-SYD, CGK-LGW route the very 1st B77W has made an appearance.

The aircraft will certainly look sleek in the GA color scheme!

I wish it had the previous livery...I'm not a big fan of the tail colors of the new livery....

Still, very nice to see another new 777 carrier!

It't only computer animated. So I think and my opinion is: that it's really good. Maybe cause of the long winter and cold times when see the mountains and snow?  

If I'm not mistaken then Ethiopian will be the next 77W Customer?

Thank's, I know that this is animated. I was more referring to some of the scenes look like it's making a turn into the mountain. Allthough I know that swiss people and PR likes to make the link with their alpine heritage, I, and I'm also just a regular consumer, feel uncomfortable of seeing a plane being animated into the middle of a mountain range. Could make better PR.

Actually when doing actual inflight photo work most customers look for similar mountain shots using the Olympics and Cascades near Seattle for their Boeing airplanes.

Interesting... the A330s use SBB L-Band for satcom while the 777s use the Ku-band (evident by the photo).
I guess the fight between OnAir and Panasonic/Aeromobile for Garuda reached a draw... with out the connectivity local legal issues still not sorted out... Garuda taking a bit of a risk here maybe?

I still hold firm that the 77W is much too elegant for a Eurowhite scheme. V Australia still has had the best scheme to date. That said, it would be nice to stop over in CGK while traveling to Europe...

GA need to apply their title in a uniform way on the fleet, on some its on front on others its centre in certain cases leaning to the rear, very shoddy this was also the case on previous livery.

Well I wouldn't consider that 77W theirs as it is a wet lease after all.

Most likely it's the only decals available for a quick paste on for the Hajj charters.

Because its a short term wet lease. Why bother painting it? It has the titles.

Air Austral probably dont want their 777 to have to be repainted once they take it back.

Standard GA policy... the Hajj standard decals package still use the old font last Hajj season. I don't think it's changing this Hajj season either. GA does this for short term wet leases even outside Hajj... it did this for the A340 from China Northwest 10 years ago too if I remember correctly.
