Re: Alaska Airlines Fleet/Network Thread - 2021

To my understanding they didn’t even take the paint off the VX. Just painted over it to get the virgin branding gone as quickly as possible to not have to pay Branson They did have to strip the body of the VX paint, the VX paint on most was nearing time to be repainted already. Maybe that was just ...
