Another Special Livery For Air China 77W

Wed Sep 10, 2014 7:21 pm

Seems that Air China will introduce another special livery on one of its 777-300ER aircraft:

Air China has a 19 77W in service. Not their first one and multiple planes have special livery's being worn.

China Airlines is the one who is seeking delivery of their first 77W

You are correct. I just flew on one in F from IAH-PEK. Though the normal livery makes the plane look as if it from the 70s.
Worked Hard. Flew Right. Farewell, Continental. Thanks for the memories.

To include that Star Trek font the use for the "Air China". I actually really like the way they look though.

No, I don't think it's "WNA", It's "China". So, I guess it must say "Love China".

This is supposed to be the 20th and last 77W for Air China. It's possible they may order more but they also have some 748s on order.

And that is why English is my second language. Thanks for correcting me!   

Looks very much like B 2047 except with a different rear end design and red wave. Different yet simple.

Did a quick double take on the first pic. At first glance, I thought there was a winglet on the left wing!

Agreed! The waving banner adds quite a bit to it.
