In any event, as long as it says "Boeing" on the side, I suppose it doesn't matter much that the livery isn't exactly the same.

Agreed. Forgive me if I'm wrong, but I'm assuming they only paint their aircraft so that they don't send them around the world in that "lime green" unpainted get-up. I doubt that they're trying to secure more sales based on how they paint their aircraft!

I would disagree, look is very important to the general customer. For example, when the A380 did its first tour to Australia (and I am sure it was like this in many other parts of the world) thousands flocked to see it. If it has shown up all white, wouldnt have been to good and the A380 wouldnt have that 'aura' that surrounds it to the general public today. Same with the 787 etc, when they go to airshows etc, it is good to have the aircraft looking good. Sure it might not secure sales on the spot, but it will play a psychological role for sure.
