The idea its all a big hoohaa for President Chen to use as his presidential plane on overseas trips (he has a bee up his a... about getting the word China out of all Taiwanese companies) seems implausible. If he is really that worked up about CI's livery he's got a Air Force VIP 738 he can fly on or he can go on BR which is owned by some of his political fundraisers!
|Quoting Alexchao (Reply 8):|
Both the Presidential Office and CI deny that the re-painting has anything to do with the Preisdent's upcoming trip. CI says that the aircraft will begin serving the KHH-HKG route for Mandarin Airlines more.

not to quible but even the present President still agrees with the present constitution of the present government on the island known usually as Taiwan that the nation is still called the Republic of China, at least for now anyway!
