Swiss 773 Heads Of Swiss

Fri Jun 10, 2016 2:56 pm

I love the Swiss 777 livery with the heads of Swiss on the fuselage. I'm curious, is this a temporary livery for the rollout of the new 773s or do we think this is permanent

Without any information whatsoever, I'd wager that it's basically permanent, in that it won't be repainted until the aircraft goes through a major service when it will be stripped and repainted anyway.

It isn't painted though, the faces are all stickers.

The stickers are intended to stay for one year.

According to the leaflets that were distributed to J-class on LX2802 when I flew HB-JNA, the "Faces of Swiss" sticker is only going to be displayed on HB-JNA. The leaflet doesn't say for how long it'll stay on the fuselage.
