It makes me think Etihad are going to dispose of all of their A340s, in favour of a mainly 777/787/A330 mix - along with a number of A380s but not anywhere near as many as Emirates. Are the A330s a long term prospect? I see Etihad as having a mainly 777/787 (Boeing) mix in time to come, with a compliment of A380s.
Would I be correct in saying that the A340s are unlikely to see the new "Facets of Abu Dhabi" colour scheme? Or at least the -500s won't. Anyone please feel free to correct me.
Of course a number of 777s and some A330s are yet to receive the new colours, but I know this takes time. When large fleet numbers are involved, operators often wait until heavy checks are due before repainting - unless their is some important promotion.
