That means it has taken almost 6-years for the repaint to take place!

Well, never one to spend any extra money, Cathay have waited until scheduled repaints to apply the new colours on their fleet. What we need now is a management change and a new colour scheme to really mess things up, aka. Delta style!!!

If that ever happened, it would probably be when the CAAC forcefully takes control away from Swire and paints all the aircraft in a hybrid russian livery. Then we'd have cathayflot!
