As far as I know it was planned to have 18 aircraft painted in the new colors until summer 2019. For the whole fleet it was estimated to take 7 years to apply the new livery.

Where he's not wrong is that in the last ten years southern europe has become a pejorative term implying lazy people that don't pay their taxes and ask for a northern bailout.

Unfortunately, that's a fairly common theme all across Europe... That last statement is fake news.

beirut is probably the most fascinating city in the Levant. BEY airport is unfortunately a dump, badly run, and badly organised.
