AirAsia: Which C/S Official?

Mon Oct 06, 2003 6:58 am

Ever since the arrival of 9M-AAG I got the impression that the 'reverse' scheme will be the new and standard livery for AK. However, the subsequent 9M-AAH came with the 'old' scheme. Was -AAG a one off? an experiment c/s?

Personally I prefer the 'reverse' scheme as it gives AK a more professional LCC look. Certainly more marketable.

Same here I prefer the reverse scheme. But seeing AK wants to save as much cost as possible and being "cheap", I think they won't like the idea of their planes flying around with more paint (heavier).  Yeah sure

But seriously, I think its a one-off. Nonetheless, we would be able to confirm when AAI comes in a few weeks' time.  Wink/being sarcastic

The 'reverse' scheme gives AK an original look rather than the 'Qantas' look-alike scheme.
