Air Malta A320NEO, Fleet Plans?

In the A320NEO thread, I noticed that Air Malta has taken an A320NEO. I’d like to know how many more they plan on taking as well as if it will have a new interior as well? Lastly what are the future fleet plans for Air Malta?

How Often Do Airliner Interiors Get A “Deep Clean?”

Hello All: I am curious as to when airliners take down and thoroughly clean out the sidewalls, panels, and lavatories. I am even curious as to if the flight deck gets any sort of a cleaning as well. After being a cabin crew member for two years, I am amazed but not surprised at how quick these plane...

“Tired” is a term used here to think that if the cabin is looking worn and ratty, so is the rest of the aircraft... I flew on a three year old A320 once in which the cabin was pretty worn out, guess that plane is “tired” too..

Re: WN livery repaints

717,464,738 are all still in the Old Colors. 945 (Florida One) should be getting paint before the summer.

Rules of thumb for paint.

Avg paint for regular livery is 8-9 days.

Avg paint for specialty livery is 12 days.

GEG and VCV are where WN paints their planes.
