Re: First A340-600 In Revised Lufthansa Livery

This new colour really brings out the length of the A340-600. Such a beautiful bird the A340-600 in any colour scheme. Enjoy these birds while they still fly.

Have seen the A321 and 787s. The under bellyshots look good, however it seems more white overall the larger the aircraft when viewed from other angles. I think the 773ERs will look even whiter as it is an even longer aircraft. When will the first 773ER appear?
