A few months ago there was talk on this forum that JAL wants to strip airplanes from colour and let them fly in natural metal (like their freighter JA8180). I would love to see a silver 744 soon, so does anybody know when we can expect the first to fly?

JAL has stated they will begin flying a polished aircraft scheme much like American Airlines' scheme. They decided this after determining large amounts of saved money on fuel costs from their polished Super Logistics freighter JA8180. It was in an issue of Airways a few months back (the one with the NW A320 on the cover I believe).
