Help Identifying Plane

My little brother took a blurry picture today at IAD. It's clearly a widebody, but the number of engines is hidden. The tail appears to be solid black or navy blue.
The fuselage is white and there are hints of pink on the wingtip. I'm working on getting a copy of the photo.

Can anyone identify the plane just by the description?

SAS maybe? They operate an A330 into IAD

Is it possible that one of the Breast Cancer Awareness planes (not sure of all of them), similar to Delta's was there?

Song Airlines.....pink on the wingtips! No, wait Song is no longer around and they were single aisle 757's! No, wait Aviance A330 perhaps, no wait, breast cancer awareness 787 UA perhaps? Peach airlines? Who the hell knows without a photo?

I forgot to mention the tail was blank and there were no titles....
The Belgium Air Force A330 best matches the description so far...

Quoting 777X (Reply 7):

What did your bro take that photo with? A nail clipper?

Belgian Air Force doesn't operate the A330 anymore.

Plane in the photo is not an Airbus. It's a 767 or 777.

Really hard to tell but I'm leaning towards 767. Beyond that there's just no telling, not much to go on with a white fuselage and a dark tail.

We've seen a few unmarked 767s in the IAD area before. Maybe this one is wearing a blue tail now or she's got a sistership:



Sure there's been another thread on it if it hasn't been deleted.

Air China doesn't fly A330s to IAD. Out of range.

I'm thinking some kind of alliance livery, Skyteam or Star Allicance.
