I wonder why they've doctored that Qantas 767 to make it a yellowtail but shown all the others in their normal livery.  Yeah sure

That's just odd... makes no sense at all.

For a minute I thought it was Brunei, but you can see the letters 'GE' on the nosegear door, which I think is VH-OGE City Of Orange QF 763.

That's right. Plus the yellow goes from the tail down into the rear fuselage "QF style".
Probably something to do with copyright.  Smile

If Qantas didn't want their colours in the photo, then the photographer could have at least picked another aircraft to shot. I hate it when they do this, do they think we're stupid? And what kind of people are they targeting with this wallpaper...  Yeah sure

Another point is the writing of the type of aircraft is written on the wing whereas the Royal Brunei ones are at the back, under the windows by the rego.

LOL, you're joking, right? Not only would a total of zero of the average flying public have ever guessed that that's actually a QF bird, but most of a.netters (myself included) would never have noticed the GE/G5 and associated it with QF either.

Yes, but as a NZ site is targeted mostly at NZ'ers and the general public isn't going to even look at those pics. The only people that would be interested would be NZ aviation go'ers. And I'm sure that may be what they were intended for. Just my opinion anyway.

The Australian flag above the windows towards the rear of the aircraft is a bit of a giveaway too  Wink

The flag near the back of the tail resembles the Ozzie flag. Interesting....  Smile

I know it is an aussie flag, but with such limited detail, how can you 'see' that?

Maybe I should go to the optom  Wink

Do you think they're concealing that it's QF, because the AKL authorities would be ashamed that they're giving special attention to an Aussie plane, not an NZ one? Isn't there (or wasn't there) some resentment of QF for doing domestic flights in NZ? I may be wrong, just something I heard once.

Just a thought. I don't know how deep these rivalries actually run.

Hi NYCFlyer,

Any resentment came from the airlines understandably. That wallpaper is from the AKL Airport site rather than an airline and any competitor coming into the country is simply money in the bank for them so I don't think that would be the issue. If that was the case, I think they'd just wait until another airline pulled in or photograph another gate.  Smile
