The aircraft will be applied with a special livery. CAL has also stated that all of their A350’s will be applied with a special livery. The liveries are birds only found in Taiwan. The first being the ‘Mikado Pheasant’.
If you are a spotter, the best place to spot the China Airlines A350 will be in Taipei and Hong Kong. Until January once they have more aircraft they will launch Taipei-Amsterdam. Vienna and Rome will soon follow after.
