Opeing up SZB thread for 2019.

 

 

One has to wonder, how Weststar acquired jets belonging to big US corporations like Trump and Google? This 767 (2-TSSA), belonged to Google at one time

The Chinese carriers are probably out of fresh livery ideas. Lucky Air for example, has the British Airways livery in red and yellow. This China Eastern Airlines Executive Air (B-6186, A318 ACJ), tops it all by adopting USAF gov. jet livery.

Like car, when jet owners upgrade, their old jet will be sold. Ones with $ could engage aircraft broker to search, inspect and take delivery.

Copycat culture is pretty much alive and kicking in China.  The new Lucky Air livery appears to be Boeing factory dreamliner livery at the front combined with British Airways logo at the tail.  It seems their design is just about copying and adopting others' idea.  Cathay Pacific's old livery too - it is so BOAC at the cheatline level.

 

By the way, I wonder how much it would cost to hire a Weststar 727?  :)

Me thinks that particular example has more to do with CX's ownership during that era rather than Chinese 'copycat culture' :D

Very true, but that has culminated the beginning and became a reference of the copycat culture lol....

Plenty of cheatline livery during then. Continental Airlines and Eastern also adopted the design. Much like baggy pants fashion.
