My apologies for asking but what's the story on MSN 285 (HU)? It was delivered to ALAFCO in March this year but is now back at Airbus?

It never left TLS. It is contractually delivered to ALAFCO but not yet taken up by HU. Same with 308 & 323.

According to a Toulouse local on Facebook, the first Aeroflot has left the FAL and is on position 30.
Tail is painted with actual livery. But no image since it's apparently forbidden.

I'm only reporting news from an eye witness.

I can confirm the plane left the FAL in the middle of the week to get to the station 30.

Is the SA one still wearing MK colours, will it be repainted?
Kind of hoping for a slight revised SA livery...

MSN 226 (ex-HU) will become ZS-SDC

A great relief. I have been looking forward to seeing the current Aeroflot livery on the A350 and did not want another "billboard titles on a white fuselage with an oversized logo on the tail."

I think I know which one you are refering to but it's indeed relieving to know the current SU livery is here to stay.

Well the 'wavy flag' is significantly larger than the current one, but it does just look like it's been scaled up to fill more of the tail.
