From 6 years of using the game, 5 years being involved in the community, and 6 years of disappointment. We asked for the new Qantas livery as soon as the new livery was first painted in October 2016 (pretty sure this was before the 787 release? at least it was after Qantas unveiled the new livery), and when the 787 rolled out of the factory back in September 2017.
Yes, they’ve done it with even older models. But I remember with the new 737 liveries, they had to wait before something was updated to be able to paint on the belly of the plane.
