RE: The Most Unchanged Liveries.

Is there a hidden rule? Financial stability and prosperity means enduring livery (i.e. SQ, EK, NH, LH, AA, FR, U2, WN, QF)

Financial turbulences and problems lead to several livery changes (i.e. UA, CO, DL, AC, OS, SR, AB, GF, JL, SA)

Germanwings: When Does The New CI Start?

Their website is still in the old colours. And i also see many billboards with the old CI.
Why they spend so much money with the old CI? Doesn't make sense to me.

Rumor: QR To Join OneWorld?

If this comes true, all ME carriers are more or less connected to OneWorld.
Not consistent with the QF-EK joint venture. and also AB-EY doesn't fit in this scenario.
