Why China Airlines 744 With Boeing Colors?

Thu Sep 07, 2006 2:38 am

Had a lay over in Hong Kong today and saw this China Airlines jet in Boeing colors. What's up with that? Special aircraft/occasion?

Maybe they gave the airline a discount in exchange for advertising?

Only an idea... I don't know really...

China airlines got this livery when they got this plane the first GE engined pax 744 for them, all others before exept the freighters are PW powered. Boeing agreed to
discount for a couple of thousand, if China Airlines would apply this Dreamliner livery style also promoting the 787.

I think that it will be removed on the planes first D-check wich should be in around 4-5 years.

Maybe it´s only publicity. But although that it looks nice.

There are also 737s out there in the dreamliner colors. Forget which two European carriers have them...

Ryanair (738) and Air Berlin (73NG)

There was also a Korean Air 739 but it only lasted 2 weeks and make a trip BFI-Farnborough

The new 739ER for Lion Air is in Boeing house colors as well.
