Pic: First China Southwest Jet In Air China Livery

Tue Jan 14, 2003 7:05 pm

As parts of newly regrouped Air China, China Southwest Airlines and CNAC Zhejiang Airlines have started to change their original liveries into Air China's. Recently, a Boeing 737-300 (Reg No. B2522) becomes the first China Southwest Airlines' aircraft to get Air China livery. On 14 Jan, the painting project of B2522 was successfully completed in Chengdu. From official source, this aircraft will return to normal operation from 17 Jan this year.

Spotting in China will be very boring soon. So many airlines nice schemes replaced buy bad schemes like CA's.

Its not like China Southwest's livery was a beauty, but it is going to get monotonous looking at seas of only 3 different C/Ss
Excuse me, but what does God need with a starship?

Actually, I quite like China Southwest's livery. The cheatline is a rare thing these days, and the scheme is colourful even though red and blue are not exactly the most original colours for schemes.

There'll still be the other smaller airlines (e.g. Shanghai Airlines & Hainan Airlines) for variety's sake when it comes to spotting.

Ah, Shenzhen Airlines has a very nice livery too! Too bad they are repainting their livery into CA's.
