CX747 mentioned in another topic that KL currently have the "record" of longest life of a paint scheme. The current two tone blue came into effect in the early 80's or very very late 70's from memory - certainly well after Tenerife in '77.
I would have thought AA held the title with the current three stripe cheatline and the stylised eagle between the A and A on the tail having been introduced in 1969.
Yep - 30 this year !! My info could be wrong and it is talking of another AA design very very similar to their current one. Anyone clarify for sure?
