RE: Pmk, I think you're right!
White paint is cheap and so is the quality of service we are getting now on airlines.
I cannot stand all white jets, they are so boring! I cant believe that British Airways and Air Canada went to this color scheme.
My favorite colors are:
Southwest (I used to hate! Now appretiate its uniqueness)
Deltas old and second (not the new one)
My favorite is Olympic Airways A-340
