I am just wondering how long it takes to repaint a Boeing 737 aircraft from an old livery to a new one? Like (BMI going old to new or old to Baby cs)

What are also the time comparisons to repaint an older version like the -200 versus the new ones like the -800 or -900 series?

Why should there be any difference timewise from painting a 732 compared to a 738???
It's all about size!

Setjet....exactly, it's all about size. The 738 is a LOT bigger then the 732.

He asked about the old generation compared to the new generation. Why should there be any difference of you take two airplanes with the SAME length???

Oh...I read your post wrong...thought you were telling him that there is no diff. Now I see, you were reiterating(sp?) his point!

Please re-read my initial post SetJet.

I can't really make an answer for what you have just said because It doesnt relate to my question. I can only say a statement in regards to your words.

That is: I did not ask "about the old generation compared to the new generation." I asked how long it takes to repaint (or Paint) a 737 aircraft.
I used the examples of the different versions to get a more accurate and varied answer.

Somehow you think that I said the 737-200 is the same size as the 737-800 (by length/chord/w-span, etc)
and there is no difference in time it takes to paint these two versions of the same type.

Averages 5 days.
Depends on the overall scheme and things of that nature but a good crew/good facility takes about 5 days.

Yes, it does depend on the color scheme. If it has many colors, then obviously, it would take longer. However, it takes longer to repaint than to pain because to repaint, yoyu must scrape first!

Five days? I think not. A good paint crew can strip, mask and paint any aircraft in 2. I've seen this on 737s and DC-10s many times. And everything in between.

to my predecessor-poster
cause by the many coulors, painting the tail of a saa aircraft costs 5 days.

for people who want to follow aircraft painting:
check www.qaps.nl qaps is a dutch painting facillity, they post each time an a/c under painting reaches a next phase a picture. (it takes them in average 3 days i think.)
