Let me ask the question here, as the matter was raised over at Facebook.

Colorful liveries = Special liveries, right? Or any airline's that has a vibrant scheme ie. Scoot, AirAsia X etc?

Many FB members are puzzled how standard liveried photos are making it in the competition. If the rules are relaxed, then it is good & clear for myself too.

Well let's get this straight.. A Singapore Airlines 777-200ER shot with a digital camera is neither special nor an inaugural so it should be removed from leading the 'votes'!!
It's all about the destination AND the journey.

Um, I think you're mistaken. Clearly the public, like that photo and the overwhelming response is that it's a very good photo. I know you are jealous, but CLEARLY the public DO NOT AGREE with you.
