Re: Updated: SAS to present new livery by September 19th, 2019

I noticed that unlike the new Lufthansa livery, the blue extends down onto the fuselage in a curved (not straight) line – that's a nice touch in my opinion.

I also suspect the livery will look less grey and more white in real life.

I like the renderings. I hope the engines look as metallic and the fuselage as grey in real life – not very eurowhite at all. SAS's new livery beats Lufthansa's by far!
