Re: Major Airline New Livery Photo posted on A350? Possibly United? Any ideas?

Dont think its FINNAIR because they only "recently" had their new livery in 2010.
My guess goes to SAS. 4 stripes for 4 nordic countries. Altough finland doesnt have shares in SAS, SAS itsself flies some flights from there and the blue could come from their current livery
