Please leave a vote if you’d like to see another beautiful livery on the 787 in IF. It would also be great to have an airline from Papau New Guinea. Here’s a video of an Air Niugini aircraft in action:

Hey, only one picture per feature request please and I suggest to make it a really good picture of the aircraft. Just saying this so that your topic stays alive.

I thought that was only if you have multiple pictures of the actual aircraft.

That might be the case. Now I’m starting to doubt my self. But I do reccomend getting a picture of the aircraft livery so that it is a little easier to see.

You see, there is no picture. That was the best I could find ;)
Here is the livery on another aircraft:

Thanks for your vote @Jacob_Sim!

Could I ask this one question, why do you think we should have this livery than any other livery or any any other feature may I ask? (Because I may vote for it)

Well, it’s just like any other requested livery. It’s a nice looking livery, it’s an airline that operates to an airport near me, their aircraft will be delivered very soon and it’s a 787… which is a pretty new aircraft and is new to Infinite Flight. So I’m sure this livery could be added considering 5 Frontier A320 liveries were added in the last update (an aircraft that was updated two years ago). There are multiple other livery requests if you have a look through the #features category:

Now that you have edited your comment I see what you mean. This livery has many potential routes to fly on the Air Niugini network. And it’s a great looking livery of course - and it’s on a beautiful aircraft!

I have voted! =) As I think it is a nice livery, however, there are more nice livery’s out there as well. =D

Of course there are always other nice looking liveries out there. There are tens of thousands of aircraft in our skies after all. Thanks for your vote!

This topic should be a good example of how Feature topics are made. The Air Niugini looks excellent.
