The plane is ex-SIA leased from Boeing.

Wow!! That is amazing looking....it looks even better than I thought.
GF's new colours are probably the best new scheme to have come out lately, I also like the Gulf Traveller scheme.

N754pr,

What kind of problems does CX have with its ex-SIA A340s?

Why can't people just type in two more characters?!?!  Laugh out loud

I am very impressed!  Big thumbs up IMO, if they incorporated a little more of the blue that is on the engines onto the fuselage, it would look even better. Regardless, it is very, very nice.

Eye candy, yet business-like. Gulf Air has a great track record for great looking airliners, and the new livery a welcome continuation. Their former, almost all-white livery was one of the few such that looked terrific and was easy to identify from a distance, too. Somewhat busy, but very classy also, were the 50th anniversary paint schemes of Nja Mahdaoui.

I guess it would've been easier to just say it looks Damn Good and puts a lot of other airline's new color schemes "in da dirt". Regards...Jack

Wow, very nice livery indeed. Another job very well done by Landor Associates (the design bureau). When you hire Landor to re-brand your company, you can be assured of having a good job done on the re-branding, at least IMO. How much would that cost, such a re-branding by Landor, must be a lot of money.

Do you know how many times the special liveries will remain ? (A320/A330/A340). I think the 767 will be transfered to Gulf Traveller ?

Sweet indeed...

Although rather boring to me(not trying to flame another B x A war  Smile ), the A340 has provided some class schemes to us over the past years.. Royal Jordanian, Beewee, AirJamaica, Air Tahiti Nui and now this one..
