Now, why is the paint different on this bit of the door - attached or integral??
I'm pretty sure that's what he
wants to know! Just to be sure, (and with apologies to the guys who's photos I snipped the doors from), this is what he's talking about...
The door outline reaches all the way to the threshold on the Southwest bird, and comes up short on the Copa one. I think you realize that, but he wants to know why? It may be a silly question, but I have to admit that now I am curious too! I'm sure it all boils down to each airline's particular aesthetics.
As for this question: Also is Southwest going to incorporate this design onto its 73NG's too?
I guess the answer would be "no" because the photo above is a 73NG, and it goes all the way to the threshold.
