New Livery Rolling out Soon!

Old Livery
My Thoughts: The old livery is a much classic version of this new one(not at all good).
Secondly Gulf Air has really no idea what to do with this 787-9 . Although they have set up an expansion plan which I think is of no worth . Where they should have given focus is on crew development and training, it looks as if the crew are forced to work.
Let’s look what these upcoming aircrafts bring to Gulf Air Luck or Disaster!



I quite like the new tail although I feel the old font looks better in size


It would be better the body remains the same and the tail changes to the new one…

I saw this at the Boeing Factory in the new livery in what Boeing called “the flight line” or where they park aircraft that are being tested. Really excited to see the result and where it will fly to.


The new livery is more pleasing. The new tail is a work of art. I’m really looking forward to see their 787s soon.


New livery is looking amazing on the aircraft.
