I think its because they only changed the livery, not the logo as such... at least that's what I recall when the livery was "updated".

It doesn't make much sense, but hey.... Big grin

Yeah, the logo still remains the same in all the advertisements, planes, and signs; however just the plane's livery was "updated" with the englargment of the logo and off course the titles.

I think Typography means Font/Typeface used in the Qatar Airways title and not the logo/design work, if you compare the new and old QR titles the difference is very obvious, the new letters are thicker and stand taller, the old are thinner and a bit squished look.
