I've always wondered this ever since I did fan texturing work to replicate Hainan's and Air China's liveries for flightsim years ago, which involved applying the Chinese script this way. Finally an answer as to why and that it's front-to-back more than it's a case of left from right. Air China is t...

NW 88 flight back in the day

I have an impression that this flight was significant in terms taking the US-China flying to the next level, through the DTW hub and over the North Pole. Is that an exaggeration? Wanted to ask here since no answer on the general forum. Thx.
